I've recently accepted a job in Parsippany (moving from the DC area) and was considering living in Morristown but I have a few concerns:

1) I'm a single guy in my mid 30's and wonder if Morristown would suit me or if it tends to be more "suburbia"

2) How quickly can I get into NYC in the evenings to enjoy the nightlife, and what are the best ways to do so? (public transportation? Drive?)

Thanks!

Morristown has a big young, professional crowd with nice restaurants and a bit of nightlife. It's not suburbia. You'll fit in and should enjoy.

Depends on what you are accustomed to. While not suburbia in the traditional sense, Morristown is still no NYC. If you are really looking for great nightlife in NJ I'd suggest Jersey City or Hoboken where you can catch a PATH train that in 5-10 minutes can take you into Manhattan.

I like Morristown a lot: the people, the main ave, the food, the bars.

It's like being in a city with out being in one. It's good if you like things to do, but don't actually want to live in a big city.

Morristown sounds perfect. Your commute to Parsippany will be a breeze. Not as much going on as Hoboken but commuting from there to Parsippany each day will get on your nerves big time.

My husband works in Morrisrown and we live in Hoboken. Hoboken is very young, lots of restuarants and a very short path ride (15 minutes) to the city.
