Short Hills, NJ
Short Hills is an unincorporated community and
census-designated place (CDP) located within Millburn
Township, in Essex County, New Jersey. It is a popular
commuter town for residents who work in New York City.
Situated approximately 15 miles (24 km) from Manhattan,
Millburn Township is bordered by the Essex County
communities of Livingston and West Orange to the north and
northeast, and Maplewood to the east; the Morris County
communities of Florham Park and Chatham Borough to the west
and southwest, and the Union County communities of Summit to
the south, and Springfield and Union Townships to the
Though Short Hills has its own railroad station and
post-office branch, it does not have an independent
government. It remains today a part of the Township of
Millburn, as it has been since its inception.
It is notable for being an affluent community. Time magazine
named it the "Richest Town in America" with seven in ten
household incomes above $150,000 per year, the highest
percentage in the United States. In 2018 Bloomberg
positioned Short Hills at fifth in the country in its 100
Richest places ranking.
Short Hills contains the sections of Knollwood, Glenwood,
Brookhaven, Country Club, Merrywood, Deerfield-Crossroads,
Mountaintop, White Oak Ridge, and Old Short Hills Estates.
Short Hills has four K-5 elementary schools. Three are part
of the Millburn Township Public Schools: Deerfield
Elementary School, Glenwood Elementary School, and Hartshorn
Elementary School. The fourth is The Pingry School Lower
Campus. Students move on to complete their public school
education at Millburn Middle School for grades 6–8 and
Millburn High School for grades 9–12. Short Hills is also
home to the Far Brook School, a private day school serving
students in nursery through eighth grade.
Short Hills has a "downtown" business area that is smaller
than downtown Millburn. Located along Chatham Road near the
Short Hills railroad station, it includes the post office, a
pharmacy, small eateries and specialty shops. The train
station waiting room operates as a bar and grill during the
evening hours and a newsstand and ticket agent are present
from early morning hours until noon.
The Mall at Short Hills is an upscale shopping mall anchored
by Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale's and Macy's.
