PARSIPPANY – In Money Magazine’s rankings of the Best Places to Live 2018, the Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills was named #1 in New Jersey and #26 in the United States. Factors comprising the ranking include the strength of the local economy, crime rate, quality of education, and concentration of local amenities.
“With good schools — among the highest scoring of any New Jersey locale we evaluated — and low crime, the township is a good place for families. And, while Parsippany is close to bigger cities like Manhattan and Newark, you wouldn’t know it from its green space: Home to more than 30 parks, Parsippany is an Arbor Day Foundation-designated Tree City USA — and has been for 42 years, one of the longest in the state.”
The ranking is a return to the top spot for Parsippany, one of the premier centers for business, family, cultural, and career opportunities in the United States. All Parsippany residents should be proud of the community that has been built in our township.
“Money Magazine recognizes that Parsippany is the crossroads of New Jersey, a place where our residents and businesses can thrive in a strong regional economy, while living in a town with extensive cultural activities, low crime, and a great school system,” said Mayor Michael Soriano. “I could not be more proud to lead this community.”
