Excellent, efficiently run municipality. Taxes actually declined slightly in 2016-17. Lots of open space and recreational activities for kids and adults. Close to all Morristown has to offer, but with lower taxes and lower density.

The town (Morris Township) had a lot of burglaries in 2017 and 2018, which really made me feel uneasy. Morristown (not township) has a decent downtown, which is close by and the schools (this is one school district) has average schools, nothing really to write home about.
Great place to raise a family. Homeowners take pride in their neighborhoods. Diversity.

Hugest advantage is everything available within a 3-10 mile radius such as: theatre, world class performing arts center,

vast selection of good restaurants, YMCA, gyms, multiple grocery stores, several hiking/biking paths, parks, 2 public swimming pools, public lake, Medical Center, independent shops and a couple larger retail chains, service businesses, 2 universities, 2 libraries, many denomination churches, Museum which also stages music and theatre performances. I wish to live the remainder of life here.
