Located in the lakes region of Northern New Jersey, Mountain Lakes is a suburban residential community less than 30 miles from New York City. It's location provides all the advantages of living in a small community with easy access to the cultural and recreational resources of New York City, as well as the resort facilities of the New Jersey shore. It derived it's name from the more than 150 acres of lakes that lie within its steep rolling hills.

Mountain Lakes boasts small-town charm and the community spirit. Itís the combination of the family orientation of the community and the commitment of the residents and the†schools. The participation in government and in the Board of Education is greater than elsewhere. The public sessions in Mountain Lakes Borough Council meeting are always spirited.

This 2.7-square-mile community of about 4,100 residents has several distinctions, one of which is its Arts & Crafts-style lake homes. Many of the homes in Mountain Lakes date back to 1910 through 1926 when designer and developer Herbert J. Hapgood began building Arts & Crafts style homes on a large tract of pristine rolling hills, woods, swamps and boulders. It was the start of the first planned communities in America.

Mountain Lakes has no downtown, but does have a few local shops and services. Thereís old train station with a restaurant, the Station at Mountain Lakes, and a model train store, called the Train Station, in the basement of the old police station. Then thereís the Mountain Lakes Market.

The community is composed primarily of executives and professional people who commute by car to nearby employment and by train or bus into New York City.†

The Mountain Lakes school system is grouped among the wealthiest in the state. The borough also is the home of the Mountain Lakes School for the Deaf. Students do well in standardized tests, and 95 percent of graduates continue their education in four-year colleges and universities.†

Transportation
Mountain Lakes is nestled in the elbow of several major highways leading everywhere yet seemingly untouched. The nearest major highway is Route 46, which runs just below its southern border. The main local road is known simply as the Boulevard. It is lined on one side by a park-like stand of mature trees along which runs a bicycle and walking trail. New York City is only 35 miles away. Residents can commute to New York City by NJ Transit train from Mountain Lakes via the Hackettstown to Hoboken line or by bus.
