The Township is composed of two areas; the older section includes Millburn’s picturesque downtown commercial center and adjoining residential sections. To the north and west lies Short Hills, one of the finest residential areas in the nation with many homes on the National Register of Historic Places. Though Short Hills has its own post office and train station, it is an integral part of Millburn Township.
Millburn-Short Hills is primarily a residential suburb and many of its residents commute to work in New York City. The Township has approximately 6100 single family residential properties, 20 small scale apartment buildings, more than 200 commercial buildings and fewer than 40 industrial buildings. More than 1000 businesses and professional companies are located in the Township. Two nationally regarded hospitals – St. Barnabas (Livingston) and Overlook (Summit) – serve the area, providing exemplary care and state-of-the-art facilities.
The Mall at Short Hills, located in the northwest corner of the Township, is an unusually beautiful regional shopping center housing more than 170 of the finest shops (Chanel, Tiffany & Co.), restaurants (Legal Seafood) and department stores including branches of Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom and Macy’s.
The community is also home to the elegantly appointed and AAA Four Diamond-rated Hilton Short Hills and a 240,000 square foot office complex located directly opposite the Mall at Short Hills.
The Township of Millburn provides an array of local services including full time police, fire and sanitation departments, a Town operated refuse collection and recycling service, and a health department. The recreation department has an active program including a private membership pool club featuring an Olympic-size swimming pool, kiddie pool and snack facility and a beautifully manicured par 3 golf course. The township also boasts a 95,000 volume, fully-staffed free public library with WIFI and complimentary internet access.
