WESTFIELD

Westfield, originally known as the “West Fields”, was once a popular trail for the Lenni-Lenape Indians whose heritage remains in many streets named for them. In the late 19th century the town was settled by immigrants from Europe, and continues today to sustain the residential tradition begun in the late 19th century with several areas officially designated as historic homes sections. A prosperous area graced with substantial housing and scenic parks, the primarily residential community provides a degree of cultural activity that is rare in a smaller town. In addition to local symphony and theatre, the downtown area boasts quaint local shops as well as national retail chains. In 2004 Westfield’s downtown received the Bronze award among Great American Main Streets. Westfield continues today to draw prosperous residents to its attractive neighborhoods, many of who are famous artists, musicians, and high government officials and sports figures. The town is distinguished by its single-family homes, broad tree-lined streets and cultural and community recreational programs. In addition it boasts a high rate of community involvement and volunteerism.  

Westfield is among the highest ranking mid-size towns on our list, and for good reason—it has great schools, barely-there crime and neighborhoods filled with young families. But what really makes it stand apart is its downtown. Packed with more than 200 shops (including local stores and national chains, like Trader Joe’s) and more than 40 restaurants, Westfield’s downtown is constantly bustling with events, like Tuesday jazz nights throughout the summer, and festivals, like the FestiFall and Spring Fling. What’s more, it’s commutable to the city—NJ Transit’s Raritan Valley train line gets you into NYC in about 50 minutes. There’s plenty to explore beyond downtown, too, like the colonial Miller-Cory House Museum and nine town parks (like Mindowaskin Park, home to a playground, gazebo and pond).
