I am looking into moving to the Hampshire hills neighbourhood in jackson, nj. Obviously, I will speak to a real estate agent, but can anyone tell me about the families living there? Types, where they send their kids to school, and exactly which streets the jews are living on. Where is the shul? Thanks for your help!

Another desperate bump. Nobody lives there, or knows someone who lives there?

I live in Jackson but not that area.
From what I hear it’s a little more “yeshivish”
Out of towny. Sounds like a mix of schools that people send to.
I know my response is vague but it’s all relative because I’m not sure where you’re coming from or looking for (frumkeit wise)

Thanks for responding amother blonde and red. (My hair's plain old brown😋)

My daughter is also in nachlas. (Hi!) From what I hear, the owner of nachlas is an 'older' family in the area, and most of the other families are younger? HOw young?

When you say the area is yeshivish, would you compare it to brookwood 1?
My family is frum, but from out of town. Looking for a "not lakewood-yeshivish" but rather more open minded/accepting/non judgemental neighbourhood. And we try not to feel pressured by "the Johns's", and I don't match my kids clothing😀( with eachother.)

Correct-not “yeshivish” like Brookwood 1. Hampshire hills sounds up your alley...there’s also an area “Harmony farms” and “Flair” - both sound like what you’re describing and looking for. (I don’t live in any of those areas..doesn’t sound like you would want where I live Wink)

The robinsons may have been the 1st frum family there, so yes they are on the older end of the families there... I think most people moving now have oldests under 10 y.o but I only know a handfull of people so I could be off and thats just the ones I know...

No where near as "yeshivish" as Brookwood 1 (or 2, or 3)
I live in a neighborhood right near there, but from what I know there are really nice, normal, frum families there. Harmony Farms might be even "less yeshivish" then Hampshire Hills.

Keep in mind that as far as keeping up with the Jones its not like that there at all, but, the homes there are more expensive than say Flair or Harmony Farms which are a similar 'type' as HH, so the families living there may be on a tiny bit higher standard than families living in the other 2 similar neighborhoods.

Also, there aren't any specific blocks that are specifically more jewish. when a house goes up anywhere in that neighborhood most likely a jew buys so from the small amount of families living there, its scattered for now.

I like that the houses in HH are newer than the houses in the other Jackson neighbourhoods.
Do you know where the people in the neighborhood daven on shabbos? (It can be the same place as during the week, I am just looking at the walking distance to homes.) how many families would you estimate are living in the neighborhood?

Yes, the neighborhood has a beautiful look and the house are very decent size with a basement and much newer than the other popular frum neighborhood in the jackson area. good for you that you can afford it Wink

They daven in someone's basement. I dont' believe there are minyanim during the week. (maybe just maariv?) not sure...

I'm really bad with numbers but I'd say there are probably like 35 families. I'm sure there's a list of the families with names and phone numbers. ask the robinsons. they likely have it and can send to you.
