The few people I know in WM are blue collar workers (albeit caucasian). They probably don't have much in common with those that reside in Montclair or Short Hills but I've never heard them say anything that would lead me to believe they inhabit a pro-Aryan town. Interesting.

I make no claims to the validity of the statement - just what I've heard from non-Christian residents.

Here goes:

Denville
East Hanover
West Milford
Verona
Lafayette
Sparta
Parsippany
Randolph
Vernon
Pequannock
Pompton Lakes
Pompton Plains
Butler
Riverdale
Kinnelon
Ringwood
Branchville
Jefferson
Lafayette is a really nice town, very pretty and peaceful.

Sparta has a reputation for having unfriendly, snotty residents. It's not a bad town at all but sticks out from the rest of Sussex County, which overall is rural/suburban, relaxed and friendly.

Do not speed through Sparta or Lafayette; both towns are crawling with police and they will pull you over, especially on Rt. 15. Five mph or so over the speed limit is about as much as they will allow.

I have been to Branchville a million times; always seemed nice enough to me.

I never really cared for Jefferson because Rt. 15 is in the middle of it and the traffic on Rt. 15 in the Jefferson area is atrocious. It's like having Rt. 80 run through your backyard. They should make a bypass.

just wanted to bump this thread in case there are more opinions out there (unless you are chiming in on the whole meaning of the word "aryan" debate)

We are looking to move to N. New Jersey & would like a 45 minute or less commute to Sussex - we'd prefer to be south or east of sussex & in a semi-suburban (i.e. not super rural!) town that has a family friendly community feeling to it - good schools, good parks & rec department, moderate to low crime, some shopping & restaurants. This thread has had some helpful info so far - I'm hoping for more!!
Thanks!

we are mainly looking at houses in Sparta, Franklin, Newton & I think one in Andover. Any suggestions, thoughts about those towns/parts of the towns?

I don't know enough about Franklin to comment but you can't go wrong with Andover or Sparta. Both are very nice areas and not too rural but rural enough (if that makes sense).

I have to admit bias though because I'm a Sussex Cnty. resident and wouldn't live anywhere else in NJ.

Oh yeah, sorry about getting off topic. It's too easy to do sometimes.

makes total sense! We found parts of VT too rural for our tastes (rural towns next to even more rural towns!). Sussex cty seems to have rural with a not too distant drive to non-rural

Are some of you people serious?! I asked about opinions on the towns (see my original post) not who prefers what skin color and who's a racist. I want either facts, statistics or opinions on those communities and that's it. If you don't like white people or you don't like black people, that's your business but please, keep it to yourself. I don't need my honest and inquiring posts pulled because of someone who can't speak maturely. If the racism continues on this thread, I'll have it pulled and the moderator can handle those of you with issues. Other than that, if someone has something else to say about these towns, then I'd appreciate your response.

Clearwater80 - you are scaredy cat!!! That's what made me fall in love with West Milford...WeirdNJ!...that's why I want to know about the town itself and the community. I'm not sure about this, however, from everything I've ever read in WeirdNJ and from listening to urban legends, I'm convinced that WM has more weird/strange phenomena in that one town alone than any other town in this state!! I'd love to live there and spend time exploring the weirdness!!!!!

Ps. Thank you to those of you who did respond in a mature manner without making racial remarks (and of course you too, scaredy-cat LOL )

Denville did not travel to that town? However I did have a friend that lived in this town the couple said it was a good town.

Sparta is the best I lived 20 min very good schools no crime great homes...The list goes on..

Jefferson is also near sparta on the other side of 15 o.k. depending on what your looking for?

Randolph good but can be tricky if you get the kids from Dover which is not a good town?

Butler and lafayette are up towards 15 never heard to much about these towns maybe good.

East Hanover to much traffic...

The rest of the towns maybe someone else can tell you?

Sorry I could not be that much help?

Also sorry for the misspells I just got this baby and I'm getting to know it.
