NJM READERS SPEAK THEIR MINDS
Contrary to our story on the New Jersey VIPs
buried in Princeton Cemetery (October), Jonathan Edwards was not a signer of the Declaration of Independence. Edwards served briefly
as president of Princeton (then known as the
College of New Jersey) and died in March 1758.
The College of New Jersey president who did
sign the Declaration was John Witherspoon,
who is also buried in Princeton Cemetery.
In the October issue, we incorrectly identified Anita Benarde, author of The Pumpkin
Smasher, as a former NJM staff member.
move to our state would be ranking the
towns by affordability and quality of life.

A VOTE FOR RAMSEY
I was disappointed that your 100 best
places to live did not include Ramsey
[number 135]. We have beautiful homes,
great schools, a walkable downtown,
two train stations and a farmers’ market
every Sunday morning.
Where is Boonton Township [number
149]? Bucolic with great parks, tons
of open space, community oriented,
Mountain Lakes High School, variety of
housing options. Best place to live in NJ!
JB, Boonton Township
I think Metuchen [number 185] should
have made the list. It is in a great central
location for commuters. It has great
schools. Good for families overall.
What about the adorable town of Sparta
[number 195]? I dare you to find a more
interesting neighborhood than the Alpine Village of Lake Mohawk.
Has anyone rating these towns ever
been to Somerville [number 471]? We
have the best restaurants, lovely streets,
quiet neighborhoods, [and] the Tour of
Somerville Bike Race .... great people, a
very diverse population and much more.
