Located only 25 miles from the busy city life of Manhattan, Chatham, New Jersey, is a quiet and charming community that captures the best of small-town suburbia. Settled in the hills of north-central New Jersey’s Watchung Mountains, Chatham offers an active community life nestled in scenic surroundings.

With a population of nearly 20,000, Chatham has many amenities of a larger town - diverse shopping and dining opportunities, a high-ranking school system, a thriving arts scene, and efficient public transportation, while still preserving the charm of Main Street Americana. Chatham is actually two separate municipalities, comprised of Chatham Borough and Chatham Township.

Together, "the Chathams" as they are often called, provide an array of opportunities for both residents and visitors alike. Home to a number of local businesses and close to many major corporate headquarters, Chatham is an attractive setting for their many workers. Similarly, Chatham’s proximity to New York City provides an easy commute by car or the well-maintained and efficient public transportation in town. Whether looking for a quiet small town with a rich history, or quick access to a major urban area, Chatham, New Jersey, seamlessly blends the two together, creating the ideal suburban community.
