Florham Park

Why does Florham Park attract so many of my clients? With its low tax rate, subsidized by many of the local businesses and corporations in town, Florham Park has a community feel like no other, with an active sense of volunteerism. Residents truly love their town and want to get involved, help their neighbors, or just say hello!

Columbia Turnpike provides residents with endless shopping destinations, yet the community manages to feel like a small town. The Little Red School House (on both the state and national registers of historic places) on Columbia Turnpike symbolizes this juxtaposition. Located 30 miles from New York City, Florham Park gives its residents everything they could want in a town and more.
