MILLBURN-SHORT HILLS, NEW JERSEY

 
Millburn Township’s area covers the beautiful hamlet of Short Hills, South Mountain and the Millburn downtown centre, as well as the historic Short Hills Park and Wyoming districts. The township is surrounded by several picturesque municipalities including Madison, Chatham, Summit, Springfield, Maplewood – South Orange, West Orange, Florham Park and Livingston. Millburn is approximately 21 miles from New York City and is serviced by the NJ Transit on the Morris and Essex Line.
Much of the town’s current character reflects its original development in the later 1870’s. Wishing to create an idyllic community, the majority landowner, Stuart Hartshorn vetted each property purchase and building plans to ensure suitability of incoming new residents. At the heart of Millburn’s town center is Taylor Park, with its own lake and historic stone bridges. And just a stone’s throw away is the massive South Mountain Reservation, a protected nature area with hiking trails, dog park and a historic landmark.
The main downtown area is centered largely on Millburn Avenue which runs from west to east through Millburn’s town centre. Many restaurants, coffee shops, retail and professional businesses are located either on this road or nearby. Millburn’s town center, as well as the Short Hills Mall, caters for the locals with chic boutique clothing and shoe shops, and high-end restaurants. You will find diverse cuisine options, such as Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Mexican, Italian and American. For entertainment, there is a Clearview cinema complex downtown while the township is also home to the Paper Mill Playhouse, a regional theatre with a production schedule more like one seen on Broadway than in Essex County. All of these options give Millburn a nice small town feel with a sophisticated edge.
