Denville: Unless you are white, thi is a very racist town. You will be looked at dirty, no such thing as a Thank You for holding door and God forbid you make a mistake and you are not white, I puchased my first home in Denville and it has been a nightmare. I have never experienced racism until I moved here and it makes me sick to my stomach to see such ignorance everywhere. I do commend the police officers, they are the best, (There is only one racist officer and she is a women whom everyone hates in the town) But as far as racism, i is so clear that unless you are white do not even think about it!

Here goes:

I have lived in Sparta, Parsippany, and Towaco (next to Kinnelon). Sparta can be a bit pricey but it is a very good town for families. I absolutely loved Towaco. I lived on Brookvalley road (half of my backyard was in Kinnelon)...housing is very pricey there but these days you can get a great deal on a home. Smaller homes in town are very affordable. A beautiful part of NJ to be in if you like wooded areas. Taxes are high (surprise!). Parsippany is very congested, ugly roads with millions of strip malls, signage, etc.

Default West Milford / quickie bio

I've lived in West Milford for 20 yrs. It is a blue collar bedroom community for the metro area. The locals who live and work in the town are co-supporting their spouse to a large degree. The area has changed over the years, Upper Greenwood Lake was considered Biker Heaven in the seventies. In the sixties, there was a realtors office at the top of the hill going into Upper Greenwood Lake, with a sign which read " Welcome to our White Community " They didn't even like Italians! In the fifties, it was just summer shacks mostly, and very backward. The winter times were long and boring, so a few of the local fire dept. would burn down the shacks for fun. The locals used to shoot raccoons and sell them to the people in Patterson (which people?) The mafia used to shoot and dump people up on Clinton Rd. back then. In the forties, the loggers would date and have what was called "Back-Door" weddings with the local Indian Women. The preachers didn't want them living in sin, but they wasn't good enough to be married on the front steps! And there was also the Jackson Whites, and that's a whole nother story! And the old pig-iron mills that ran 24/7 in the 1880's and those nameless graves of the drifters who found work and bunked near those mills and gave-up their lives there.>RichU
