Schley Mountain: A Land-Use Case Study

An extensive special report examines land use in New Jersey by looking at The Hills, a 5,100-unit collection of townhouses and single-family homes, commercial strips and office buildings, that's home to about 10,000 people. "The story of what happened on Schley Mountain is a vivid miniature of a vast mural: It is the story of how powerful forces and countless individual decisions dramatically reshaped New Jersey. It is a case study of how the post-war American dream of a place in the suburbs began to run up against vanishing open space."
