Local town makes top 10 places to live

Monday, July 13, 2009

Money Magazine is out with its list of the best small towns in which to live, and chances are, many probably have never heard of some of them.

The top three are Louisville, Colorado, Chanhassen, Minnesota and Papillion, Nebraska. The only local town that made the top 10 list is Warren, New Jersey, which finished at number six.

So what makes this town so special? Here's what Money Magazine had to say about it:

"Children, commuters, cul-de-sacs--sure, Warren has those. But it isn't the typical big-city suburb. Here, fields aren't used just to kick soccer balls but also to raise cows and crops, thanks to 72 working farms. You'll see few sidewalks and streetlights; residents say they'd spoil the semi-rural atmosphere.

"Many residents work in New York City, but there are plenty of jobs closer to home. Insurer Chubb has its headquarters in town. Embattled Citigroup has a large office in Warren, and a spokesperson says no layoffs are planned there.

"Residents rave about the local schools and the family-friendly township recreation offerings, including a fishing derby for kids each May, a carnival in June, and a classic-car show in September. And when the charms of Warren wear thin, either the beach (the Jersey shore), the slopes (the Poconos), or high culture (Manhattan) is just an hour away."
