25 Small Towns In New Jersey Where Everyone Knows Your Name

New Jersey may be the most densely populated state in the nation, but we have a surprising number of charming small towns. While Haddonfield and Ridgewood are amazing, I’m talking even smaller. Every town on this list has a population of 5,000 residents or less (estimates based on 2010 census data), giving neighbors a chance to really get to know each other. These 25 friendly towns are all about community!

Did your favorite tiny town make the list? What other neighborhoods would you add? Are you more of a small town or big city person?
