Millburn was created as a township in 1857 when Union County was formed. Twenty thousand people currently live in Millburn, 13,000 of them in the 5 square miles that make up Short Hills. There are four main communities in Millburn: Wyoming, South Mountain, Millburn Center and the largest, Short Hills. Each has its own charm and unique characteristics.
Short Hills was designed as a commuter suburb; it has its own train station. Both Short Hills and the downtown Millburn station are on the NJ Jersey Transit Midtown Direct line. From either station trains go to and from Penn Station or Hoboken, where commuters catch a PATH train into lower Manhattan, seven days a week.
Trains travel westbound to Summit, Morristown and Dover. Permit parking is available. NJ Transit also provides bus service between Newark and Livingston with stops at the Short Hills Mall.
Easy access to Route 280, the Garden State Parkway and Routes 24 and 78 make north, south and westbound commutes easy.
