Talk about a stupid survey

New Jersey Monthly is out with its rankings of the best and worst towns in New Jersey in which to live. This is a very snobby and elitist survey in that rich towns normally rank higher than poor towns.

Far Hills in Somerset County came out number one and Chatham Township was second. Good for them.

Interestingly, Morristown was ranked 510 _ near the bottom.
Now, does anyone truly believe that Morristown, which boasts history, easy access to the city and ample entertainment, is one of the worst places in the Garden State to live?

New Jersey Monthly, by the way, is located in Morristown. Hmm .. maybe, a “big-wig” got a parking ticket and got mad at the town. 🙂

    What was Union City ranked ?

    Snowman, for once you are correct!

    Furthermore I think anything that deserves the label “stupid” should absolutely have to get your stamp of approval before rightfully being labeled “stupid”.

    I bet they ranked the towns according to which ones took out the most advertising in their magazine!

    Or maybe they’re hoping Morristown will give them a property tax break if they play nice with them and promise to give them a better ranking next year!
