After seeing all of the negative press for Short Hills, I feel that, as a resident, there should be an unbiased, neutral opinion that contains fact, as opposed to fiction, about the town itself, not the people whom are targeted by these negative diatribes. Short Hills is one of the wealthiest towns in New Jersey. According to Forbes' 500 Most Expensive Zip Codes of 2006, Short Hills was ranked 5th overall in NJ behind Alpine, New Vernon, Mantoloking and Stone Harbor. The town also was ranked 66h overall, ahead of almost all of the affluent communities in Fairfield county, CT (Only Riverside, New Cannan and Greenwich placed higher). Many of the town's residents are Investment Bankers, Doctors, Laywers and members of other well-respected, fairly well paid professions. There are two majors draws to living in Short Hills. The first draw is the town's proximety to New York City. Along with Millburn, Summit, Madison, Chatham, Maplewood and South Orange, Short Hills acts as a Bedroom community for many commuters. All of the afforementioned towns are connected to NYC via the Morris and Essex Line on NJTransit and have direct service to New York City's Penn Station as well as Hoboken's train station, which provide access to NYC through the Path Train system and both the Financial District and Wall Street bound ferries. The other key reason why Short Hills has such drawing power is that the school system is considered to be one of the best in the nation, ranked 181st according to Newsweeks' 2006 top 1200 high schools publication. According to the same publication, when compared to other schools in New Jersey, the school system was ranked 6th. As a point of refference, Newsweeks' top 1200 list is based around the top 5% of public schools in the nation. Short Hills is also known for its mall, home to many of the upscale merchants that have residences on Fifth Avenue in NYC.
Short Hills is an affluent, bedroom community in New Jersey.

I've lived in shit hills my whole life so here's a bit about it. 7th grade is batmitzah season, where most kids are invited to about 100 throughout the year. costing between $80,000 and $150,000. the traditional turbulence dance at every mitzah. boys jump around in a circle yelling "fuck the police" or "we slay p*ssy". All the girls dress like they're 20 in Bebe dresses, push up bras and 6 inch heels. mostly everyone lives in giant mansions but there are some small houses. The famous short hills mall is where there is every designer brand and the Starbucks line is always long. the only sandwiches you get at the Millburn Deli is the Godfadda or Jay Ray. girls in elementary or middle school shop at Gotham and kids at heart. Kids go to sleepaway camp for 7 weeks leaving parents to go on trips or their beach houses. whether its the hamptons, aspen, or Boca Raton to see our grandparents, we are there. All dads commute in and out of the city everyday. with the japs, we do have caps (Christian American princesses) which we invented. Chinese and Indians move here for the schools. there are no black people. high schoolers have parties every weekend where there is pot and expensive vodka. They insta themselves drinking because parents dgaf. some people exaggerate it here just because they are jealous of he bubble that we live in. We will never know how the real world works because our parents will pay for our NYC apartment out of college and everything after that:)
Short Hills may have the worst reputation but residents don't mind the hate because they can buy your house and use it as their dog house:)

Short Hills is just a normal town in New Jersey. Yes, it might be a rich town but it doesn't mean everyone that lives here is a snob. The school might be one of the top school and most kids go to the top 100 colleges from it but that is because the kids study hard and apply themselves. If you studied as hard as some of the kids here i know then u could be getting straight A's too. Also the mall might have every designer known to man but that doesnt mean thats the only place people shop. Right now in my closet i have no juicy or lacoste or solo or free people, most of my clothes are from target. And people in Millburn are just as rich as people in Short hills. Most kids here do not just live off there parents money. I have to work to earn money and my parents give me $10 a week for babysitting and doing chores around my house. Most people here are actually good people, but we definetly have our share of spoiled brats, but it doesn't mean everyone is horrible.
Short Hills kids are spoiled brats

One of the richest towns in New Jersey, The East Coast, The United States, etc. Home to JAPs, jews, Posers, and possibly one black person. The public school is practically private and the houses are bigger than apartment buildings. The high school student parking lot contains nicer cars than the faculty's. Finals are not allowed until high school, SATs are always aced. "Punk" people are posers, "ghetto" people are expelled. Crime dosent exist so cops spend their time breaking up parties and "warning" people about using drugs. Girls shop at exclusive boutiques like Gotham, Manning's, Kids at Heart, and the Short Hills Mall. Guys customize their shoes and pop their "oh so ghetto" collars. Pride is taken in the losing football team and the horribly irritating cheerleaders. Summers are spent at camp and in the hamptons, winters in Aspen and the caribbian. In the 7th and 8th Grade Bar/Bat Mitzvahs take up the weekends. Roughly 100 are attended. In 10th grade the same number of Sweet Sixteens are held. Parents are lawyers, doctors, executives, investment bankers, etc. The bottom deciles of the graduating class of Millburn High still go to top 100 schools. The entire town reeks of spolied brat.See Millburn.
