I don't think that we can say that any given town is the "best" in Union County. Each town
has its own unique character and will have features that appeal to certain individuals
and familes. Mountainside, in general has homes with a bit more of a "country" feel,
because of its proximity to the Watchung Reservation. Some people love looking out the
kitchen window and seeing deer in their backyard, while others aren't too pleased about it.
Property taxes are relatively lower than some other towns, but there is no "downtown"
and no train service. I think it's a great choice for some, but there are other towns that may
be a better match for others.
