“The goal of our Best Places to Live rankings is to provide accurate, comparable and thorough evaluations of places,” Niche states on its website. “To do so, we’ve collected and analyzed dozens of rankings factors from federal and local government datasets. We’ve combined those with proprietary Niche data and community reviews from each area.”

One Niche user stated the following about North Caldwell:

“If you love being surrounded by extremely intellectual people, this is the place to be. The education system is one of the top in the state and people are all friendly. Taxes are expensive, but close proximity to New York City and other opportunities make it worth it. There is a large Jewish population.”
