Default Morris Township/Morris County

I am looking at townhouses in the Morris Township area of Morris County. Price range of 450-550k and was curious what people think of this area as compared to Hanover/Whippany/Florham Park? Definitely looking for good schools and an area to raise young kids but still be convenient enough to NYC.

Not thrilled with the area near Headquarters Plaza and Speedwell Ave right in Morristown but was just curious what other opinions are of the outer areas - Morris Twnship and Morris Plains. thanks

Default Morris township

I just bought a house in Morris Township off of Western Avenue right at the border of the town and the township. We are very happy here-got a nice sized house for 475. I don't care for the area by headquarters either. But just a mile west the area is beautiful and the neighborhoods are safe and quiet. Also the area by Burnham Park is very nice. It is a hilly area and very family friendly.

I don't have kids but I see a lot of families around here.

The area is fine. I think the kids go to Morristown High School which is not, in anyway, fine.

I'm not an expert and this is just my personal opinion, but I think Whippany is a nicer town with better schools. I believe Whippany was picked as a top 10 town in the US by Money Magazine a few years ago. I also think Florham Park is nicer. I always get confused with Hanover and East Hanover and never remember which is the nicer one. Morris Twp is nice though, I just think that Whippany is nicer.

Yes, they are not to shabby!!

They both like the Morristown scene, they were renting in Morristown on Elm St....might as well turn that rent money into mortgage money and get something back eventually.
They are in Morristown in minutes..
