As the home of Bell Laboratories, the inventor of the touch-tone telephone and the laser, you'd expect Berkeley Heights to be on the cutting edge. And in some ways it is. This north Jersey township is home to the 85 household Free Acres community, which pays its local taxes in a lump sum, not per household. But the township still maintains a traditional charm. Its charming downtown along Springfield Avenue features a number of shops, pizzerias and a memorial dedicated to the victims of the 9/11 attacks. -B.N.
