About Short Hills

Short Hills is a small community located in Northeastern part of New Jersey. This community has become a popular town for commuters working in New York, especially since the establishment of a direct rail to Penn Station. In 2014, Time Magazine named Short Hills the “Most affluent town in America” due to high average income of the residents here. Short Hills was established by Stewart Hartshorn with the intention of creating a “harmonious community for people who appreciated nature," and "where natural beauty would not be destroyed by real estate developments, and where people of congenial tastes could dwell together." Short Hills has been home to many famous individuals, including Rachel Zoe, Peter Kellogg, and Anne Hathaway.

Newark Liberty Inter

Located just 25 minutes away from the Mall at Short Hills– home to the Cartier Short Hills boutique – Newark Liberty International Airport is the largest airport serving the state of New Jersey. Although this airport does not have many amenities or sit down restaurants, there are a number of quick-services places to grab something to eat on the way to your gate. Newark has increasingly become utilized by more individuals traveling to and from New York, so baggage check and security lines may start to become longer than usual.
