From NJ Family Magazine:

Interestingly, Westfield is singled out for praise as a mid-size town (http://www.njfamily.com/Westfield/) and New Providence gets ranked ahead of us in Union County….

However, Cranford gets some notice as a Top Commuter town as well (The commute from New Providence isn’t that great.)
