Very wealthy town in Hunterdon County, NJ. Has a very small village area at "Oldwick". Very quaint and rural. James Gandolfini (Tony Soprano) just bought a house here in the past year. 87% white, but of course all the Indians and East Asians will change that fast as they are continuing their onslought into many of the historical colonial 200 - 300 year old towns in NJ. Nonetheless, this town is a very ideal place to live with outstanding schools. Very similiar to Pound Ridge, NY.
Resident 1: Yo I heard Tony Soprano just moved to Tewksbury with his Asian wife.
Resident 2: Yeah, he wants a more private town to live in as he values his solitude as his Asian Geisha doesn't give him any back talk like dem' loud mouthed American ho's.
Resident 1: I think you just told way more than I wanted to hear. No relax and let's hot box some chronic blaze in my new Beemer, my daddy just bought me.
Resident 2, 30 minutes later: " I think I'm Kung Fu fighting" Du da du da du da doot doot fighting"

Larchmont - same as above as it borders scarsdale
Rye and Bronxville - Full of annoying stuck up rich kids who think they are ghetto.
Rich Towns in Southern Westchester

Pound Ridge - nothing wrong here. old country town with nothing in it.
Mt. Kisco - called a "rough" town in N. Westchester but its nothing like that. The only town in the area with an actual t...
