MAPLEWOOD and the four ORANGES ( Orange, East Orange, West Orange, and South Orange) are not governmentally a unified city, but all together they constitute a homogeneous community. Rising gradually from the lowlands around Newark upward along the slopes of the Watchungs to the west, the five municipalities pride themselves upon a mountain-plain relationship with the nearby metropolis. The large percentage of wellto-do residents among the 162,000 population gives this relationship a sociological as well as a geographical reality.

These municipalities do not resent their title of "typical American suburbs." It is grounded in civic independence, a high proportion of one- and two-family homes, and a paucity of grimy manufacturing plants. Residents, however, refine this distinction yet another stage by referring officially to the Oranges and Maplewood as "New York's most beautiful suburbs."

The justice of these two designations helps to define the Oranges and Maplewood. The typical achievements are the efforts largely of the older citizens, Jerseymen for several generations. This stock has combined with that of the 15,000 commuters of more recent origin to create a cultural atmosphere that has produced the Art Center of the Oranges, the South Orange-Maplewood Adult Education Center, homes which are show-places
