Congratulations are in order for the four New Jersey communities that made Money magazine’s latest list of “America’s 100 Best Places to Live.” The Fabulous Four are Parsippany-Troy Hills (15th place), Franklin (25), Hamilton (75), and Wayne (83).

But deep sympathy should be extended to the five New Jersey communities that made the cut last year, but were given the bum’s rush this year. The Falling Five are Montville (17), South Brunswick (22), Ridgewood (26), Madison (33), and Hillsborough (53).

I wonder how many of Money’s readers understood why the names changed so dramatically from year to year.

  1. something we have all known for a long time

  2. If you read the article in the link, it states that Money magazine changed its criteria this year to focus only on towns with populations greater than 50,000. That is why Montville, South Brunswick, Ridgewood and Madison “didn’t make the cut.”

    The article also quotes a past editor of Money magazine stating that criteria for its polls needed to be changed regularly in order to make the results look fresh and newsworthy.

    In other words, this is a non-story.

  3. No…Ridgewood didn’t make the cut because it sucks. Stop making excuses!!

  4. #2 — excllent point and now all we need to do to make the cut next time around is approve all of the requests to build massive apartment buildings in the middle of town.

  5. Well, at least we still have nice trees….
