Madison

Madison is just under an hour from the city, with an eclectic mix of home styles that appeal to all tastes. The two-story red brick downtown is picturesque, providing a variety of locally owned stores and restaurants.  Main Street might look quaint at first glance, but don’t be fooled by its’ small-town charm.  Madison has much to offer its residents, including the highly awarded Shanghai Jazz Restaurant and Bar; Gary’s Wine and Marketplace, which sells artisanal spirits and treats; Crowley’s Cupcakes; Short Stories Bookshop and arts hub; and Slamwich Scratch Kitchen, serving unique and locally sourced craft sandwiches.  The YMCA, Drew University, and Fairleigh Dickinson University, provide expansive possibilities for cultural and recreational interests.
