NEW VERNON, NJ. Ranked 55 out of 500 on the 2017 Forbes list of “America’s Most Expensive Zip Codes,” the exclusive hamlet of New Vernon is an enticing combination of suburban conveniences and pastoral landscapes situated only 40 miles from New York City. An unincorporated community within Harding Township, it is the seat of local governmental offices and a destination for equestrian enthusiasts who want acres of pastures and easy access to the cultural centers of Manhattan, Newark and Philadelphia. Rolling pastures and miles of bridle trails maintained by the Harding Township / Green Village Bridle Path Association traverse New Vernon, and many residents keep horses on their farmland-assessed acreage.
Much of what is now known as New Vernon began as an agricultural community in the 1700s, and the area was largely untouched by colonial turnpikes, canals, and railways of later years. Wealthy residents of Newark and Manhattan began moving to the area to escape a hectic urban lifestyle, and in 1928 they established the New Vernon Neighborhood Restrictive Agreement. This voluntary covenant placed restrictions on the land that required future owners to maintain the rural nature of the area, and the +1,000 acres involved influenced the zoning codes that have preserved the landscape to the present day.
MORRIS COUNTY, NJ. Part of the New York Metropolitan area, Morris is New Jersey’s tenth-most populous county, with a population of nearly 500,000 at the last United States Census. Ranked among the highest per capita incomes in New Jersey and the third-highest median household income in America, Morris County residents were also honored by Forbes in 2009 as the sixth-best place to raise a family in the nation. Families enjoy not only the proximity to New York City, but also the 13,000 county parks, ten local farmer’s markets and many kid-friendly museums. There are also four county golf courses and many more public and private courses and clubs in Morris County.
Thirty-three Fortune 500 Companies have headquarters offices, or a major facility in Morris County, including industry giants like AT&T, Honeywell, Colgate-Palmolive, Pfizer, and Johnson & Johnson. Major employers in the county range from health care to mobility solutions: Novartis, Atlantic Health System, Saint Clare’s Hospital Inc., and the Avis-Budget Group employ thousands of residents, and local businesses and residents alike take advantage of Morris County’s low general tax rates – New Vernon, in fact, has the lowest general and effective tax rates in the entire county.
