An Expat Talks about Living in Morristown, New Jersey

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Morristown

What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?

There are all kinds of cultural activities available in Morristown. It has a very proud Irish American community, which holds a wonderful St. Patrick's Day parade every year. There are all kinds of parks and recreation in and around the town, and lots of charity opportunities, including the Friends of Morristown Volunteer Program, which attracts all kinds of people. For people in their twenties, there are numerous bars and the Calaloo Comedy Club. The local public and private schools have activities through which parents can meet other people. Morristown has a rich history stemming from the Revolutionary War and this also has attractions and historical parks that offer some things to do where one might meet others.

In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

No problems here. This is a very diverse city. It is more diverse in the city section than the outlying wooded areas that are definitely mostly white and very upper class. There is some poverty in the city. Overall, Morristown offers something for all kinds of people, and you definitely notice that people of different races - especially kids - do mingle, which is great.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

AT&T is nearby, although it's headquarters is in the process of being sold. Many branch offices are still all over the area, however. Lucent is also nearby, as are all kinds of pharma businesses, such as Novartis in Summit. There are some banks and many small consulting firms. Many nearby communities also have similar opportunities, and as I said, New York is accessible from a commuter's perspective.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

It varies very greatly, as this is a small city. Just about anyone can fit their lifestyle into Morristown, unless you are in need of a bigger city, in which case Manhattan is only about 40 minutes to an hour away.

If a friend of yours was thinking of moving to this city or town from far away, what other advice would you give them.

I would definitely recommend Morristown, especially since you can generally find what you want regardless of your lifestyle. Diversity is also a great reason for moving to Morristown. If you like the country, there is a lot to do in terms of hiking and biking, which is why I love it so much. Also, the school systems and private schools in the area are great.
