Jenn,

I found a cost of living comparison tool to be very beneficial when looking into two communities. We have a community report tool available on our web page which may help you.

http://www.davidandloismarris.com/community_report.asp#

Here you can enter the zip code from each community and receive a comparison of the following categories:

cost of living
crime
net worth
housing
education
population
household
income
climate
transportation

It includes a zip code look up tool (Denton 75201, New Providence, NJ 07974).

It looks as if New Providence has a higher cost of living. Good luck.
