City Guide
Morris Plains
Moving to Morris Plains

Renting in Morris Plains offers easy access to The Big Apple, which in turn means that there's a sincere demand for two-bedroom apartments for rent, rental condos, and everything else in between. As such, you really do benefit from both worlds - the buzz of big city life, and at the same time, the lazy, sleepy pace of the little borough. It's the perfect combo, no doubt about it!

The Timing

Though there's a plethora of availability, with its' close proximity to NYC, the demand for rental pads in Morris Plains is consistently high. With this in mind, it's wise to give yourself plenty of time to find the perfect place. Four weeks should do nicely, and when you do find your idea of perfection, don't be tempted to sit back, relax, and merely savor the dream of moving in. Instead, get the contract signed and seal the deal as soon as you can to avoid having your dream remain merely that.

Morris Plains Neighborhoods

The quiet little sleepy bedroom community of Morris Plains offers a beautifully tranquil setting - a place to get away from it all and just relax, thus "bedroom community" is certainly a fitting description. However, you'll have to pay for the pleasure. With its' relatively close proximity to New York City it means that the cost of living in addition to the cost of renting is higher than the states' average by quite some way.

Powder Mill Road: With views over Powder Mill Park, Powder Mill Road offers a small selection of two bedroom apartments for rent in Morris Plains. There are nine restaurants within easy walking distance, including Cinnamon on State Route 10 and Tabor Pizzeria on Tabor Road.

Stiles Avenue: In close proximity to both downtown Morris Plains and the local train station, a house rental on Stiles Ave also affords easy access to five schools, two grocery stores -- Fairchild Market & Bakery on Burnham Rd, and ACME Markets on Speedwell Ave -- a bank, and twelve restaurants.

Park Road: With easy access to no less than eight different schools and four restaurants, including Verde Ristorante and Tabor Pizzeria, both on Tabor Rd, Park Rd provides a lovely quiet location in the borough to get an apartment for rent.

Living in Morris Plains

New Jersey Transit offers a train service from the Morris Plains train station over on Speedwell Ave, running between Morris Plains and Secaucus Junction, Newark Broad Street Station, Hoboken Terminal, and New York Penn Station. US Route 202 runs from New Castle in Delaware, through Morris Plains, and terminates at Bangor in Maine.

What do folks tend to get up to in Morris Plains? Well, the Stickley Museum at Craftsman Farms just off Route 10, Morris Plains, is a specialty museum and country estate which belonged to Gustav Stickley. This is your opportunity to step back in time to the early years of the 20th century. There are also regular workshops where you can learn about various aspects of craftsmanship, from ceramics to woodwork to learning to paint like Gustav Klimt and more! Once you've completed your craftworks for the day, pop down the road to Elements of Morris Plains for a relaxing massage. Then after all that hard work, head back up Route 10 a little way and go fill your belly at Ristorante Civile, which is a very civil affair that offers Italian food at its' very finest. If you're not a fan of the Italiano, instead, why not go to the Tabor Road Tavern on - you guessed it - Tabor Road. It's a little costly at Tabor Road Tavern but then, it can be described as something akin to a fine dining experience. The establishment offers American cuisine.
