Morris County has one of the lowest crime stats for 2007 - including Dover in there! People assume it's dangerous because it's not all white folk walking down the street like they're use to from watching Leave it to Beaver growing up : )

You can rest assure that is most likely the reason...you also have a somewhat small area that is mostly black...over on the road that leads down to Rte 10...South Salem St I believe...coupled with the median income in Dover not up there with the rest of Morris County....that said there are far worse places to live then Dover..Dover really isn't all that bad

You want to know something else? I do database mgmt for a marketing co and we have a few Non Profit org's that we do some data work for and Dover residents are always up there on top of the lists of towns that give to charity the most (not the most money, but the most residents that contribute).

I don't have a problem with Hispanic people I have a problem with illegals..no matter where they are from....Mexico or Ireland

My one DIL her grandparents on 1 side immigrated legally from Italy the grand parents on the other side..Grandma is from Puerto Rico and grandpa came here legally from Mexico, they lived in Morristown
