Parsippany or P-town is a municipality in Morris County, one of the wealthiest counties in the US. Contrary to public opinion, it is not the ghetto of Morris County as many claim it is; that would be Dover. I grew up and went to school here and I can say with confidence that my teachers have taught and prepared me well for college and life. My alma mater (PHHS) might not have had the highest average SAT scores but it did have dedicated teachers who never ceased to challenge me and who have helped mold me into the person I am today. And o yea, PHHS Acadec team owns.
Person: Hahahaha. You live in P-town? Parsippany is soooo ghetto.
Parsippany resident: Well actually there isn't widespread poverty or crime. I have no idea what you're talking about.

A township Morris County, New Jersey.
Quite a few residents dress like they think they're in the ghetto, including my Jewish neighbor.
It's actually not a bad place, I've lived in Lake Hiawatha my whole life and there's barely anything in need of repair or sleazy about this part of town. A lot of kids from other parts of Parsippany come to downtown Lake Hiawatha (which is infested with pizzerias and nail parlors) to loiter and smoke weed. Granted, if there was a drug bust in Lake Hiawatha it would be pretty empty.
However, the public school system is pretty retarded. The schools on the one side of school seem to have gotten gypped. Central Middle School is overcrowded while Brooklawn isn't anywhere near as crowded, and if you go to the High chances are you envy the fact that the Hills have air conditioning. The board has also been too cheap to pay the electric bill on a few occasions, leading to the power being cut during school hours.
Ignoring the schools, Parsippany's pretty good. The cops here are great, they'll just ask you what kind of Chinese food you're eating and then drive away. They also teach their children the safe distance to tailgate someone from and how to murder someone by putting engine coolant in their iced tea.

Also known to the commonfolk as "P-Town", Parsippany, New Jersey is located in Morris County, one of the wealthiest counties in the country; a town with heterogeneous mix of almost two hundred ethnicities; a town with a widespread income where one person could be making $120K a year and his neighbor could be making only $20K; Lake Hiawatha is considered the "ghetto part" of Parsippany, but in truth the whole of Parsippany is way better off than most towns.

Get a Parsippany mug for your mom Nathalie.
A town in morris county, New Jersey. Which happens to be one of the wealthiest counties in the COUNTRY! While not the poorest town in the county(I believe Dover is worse off), it is not quite as wealthy as Mendham, or Harding Township. However there are some nice places to live and many of the houses go for over $400,000, even the small ones. Powder Mill is an exceptionally wealthy part of Parsippany.
Guy- I'm from Dover

I live 3 minutes from this town. I go to school in this town. Here is my definition:
A town where you are labled into three categories: A freak, a fag, or, yes, alot people dress like wiggers. Most people here are emo and punk fags who do nothing but listen to Taking Back Sunday, or are total wiggers, and listen to nothing but rap.

The poorest municipality in Morris county. It is overcrowded, busy, and has too many office complexes. It also has many apartment communities in bad need of repair such as Lake Hiawatha.
The communities that surround Parsippany are far nicer places to live.
