FANWOOD/SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ – Both Fanwood (No. 99) and Scotch Plains (No. 82) made it into the “Top 100 Towns” list published bi-annually by the magazine New Jersey Monthly.

While the full list of all 514 towns ranked will not be out until Sept. 3, NJ Monthly has let it be known what towns made the top of the list.

On its website, NJ Monthly states: “Our exclusive 2013 rankings are based on the most recent available data for home prices, property taxes, crime rates, school results and various lifestyle attributes. We’ve combined the data using a proprietary formula to create the overall rankings of New Jersey municipalities.”

Due to a lack of statistically significant data, towns with a population under 1,500 were dropped from the survey.

The full list will be available online at www.nj.com after Sept. 3.
