While it's a ways from New York and Philadelphia, jobs in Readington are plentiful. Pharmaceutical giant Merck has its global headquarters there, as does Chubb, a major insurer. Despite all this economic activity, Readington is a far cry from the dirty industrial landscape to its east.

Readington's natural beauty and small-town feel so close to high-paying jobs have made it an attractive - and expensive - East coast enclave. -A.F.
