A Bit About Chatham ...
Chatham Borough is located 20 miles (32 km) west of New York City on the eastern edge of Morris County. Chatham’s neighboring communities are Summit to the southeast located in Union County, Millburn/Short Hills in Essex County to the northeast, while communities also located in Morris County include Chatham Township to the west, and Madison and Florham Park Boroughs to the north.
The Passaic River, which rises in Mendham and defines the Great Swamp, flows north along the eastern boundary of Chatham. Fairmount Avenue ascends Long Hill perpendicularly from Main Street in the contemporary center of town to the highest elevation of the town among the Watchung Mountains. From there, one may see the lights of New York beyond the crest of the ridge hills of Summit and Short Hills.
