What are the differences? Which is better for families with young kids? Commute to NYC? Neighborhoods?

I don't like Hanover Township.Florham Park is slightly more expensive then East Hanover.

I would either go by townships with better schools or easier commute rout to NYC.

Thanks DPolo. Can you elaborate on what you don't like about Hanover Township?

It's a personal preference, that area of Hanover that neighbors parsippany I don't like. There is nothing there I guess.
I am looking at the map of Hanover right now and there is an area I traveled often and never realized it was Hanover.

I have family in Livingston and East Hanover and umm West Orange... Lived in West Orange and Livingston Myself.

Sometimes I don't like the area because it's nature not to my liking. Not enough trees I guess. But Hanover is to far west for me

Florham Park real estate has really spiked up over the last 2 years. Probably can't find anything decent for less than $500-$600k. Most builders are paying $400-$500 for old houses/lots to build $1m + houses.

In East Hanover, I personally like the area between River Road and Ridgedale. I think that is the safe section to not have to worry about flooding.

Hanover Township consists of two unincorporated communities, Cedar Knolls and Whippany, so don't let that confuse you if looking around. All kids go to Whippany Park High School. Few refer to where they live as "Hanover Township", instead using the community names.

Florham Park and East Hanover are adjoining, separate municipalities that have always been "connected" because they share a high school, Hanover Park.

The two schools are part of the same overall high school district known as Hanover Park Regional High School District.

Lived in Hanover Township for 13 years and really liked it. Whippany, Cedar Knolls and Morris Plains make up Hanover Township. Property taxes used to be cheaper in Hanover than Florham Park, East Hanover. Whippany also had very good schools.

Morris Plains is NOT part of Hanover Township.

Hanover Township (Cedar Knolls and Whippany), is a nice middle class town, but East Hanover and Florham Park are nicer and more upscale. All have good schools.

I grew up in East Hanover, and I still have family in town. Why do I suggest it? Because I have lived all over the USA, and surprisingly, EH was the big "city" town, with the MOST home town feel. Mr. (Mayor) Pannullo, coached my softball team, I know a friend when I see one, I know the cops, they know me. It's a good nice place, it's safe, and that dynamic is not easy to come by on a street, let alone a whole town.
