When I counsel potential buyers unfamiliar with Morris County they usually ask, “Why is Morris County a good place to live. My answer usually begins with, “How much time do you have?  You see, Morris County, located only thirty miles from New York City is a GREAT place in which to live.” It’s a large area covering approximately 482 square miles and its home to thirty nine municipalities including towns, townships, and boroughs.  The terrain and topography are extremely varied including rolling hills, flatlands, lakes, rivers, woodlands, urban areas, clearly defined municipal centers and pretty much everything else one would hope to find other than mountains, desserts, and oceans.
