Madison-based independent coffee cafe opening second location in space formerly occupied by Greenberry's, which closed in early 2012.
A Greenberry's-sized void in Morristown's coffee culture is expected to be filled sometime in March. Drip Coffee, which has been open in Madison since September 2008, is coming to town. Rupert Jones, owner and operator of the Main Street cafe, confirmed he and business partner Sandy Mathews have purchased the building formerly occupied by Greenberry's Coffee and Tea on the Green and are opening a second Drip Coffee location sometime in March. "We kept it under wraps for awhile," said Jones, who had previously lived in Morristown for 20 years and was eager to expand the Drip Coffee brand into the town. "I have a great deal of affection for the town." The sale for an undisclosed amount was finalized at the end of December. The location …

The so-called "AC Bandit" who police say has pushed in window air conditioners to burglarize four Morris Township homes over the past two months, may have struck a Madison residence last week. A window air conditioner was pushed in at an Elm Street residence last Monday and a laptop computer, iPad, sneakers and a T-shirt were reported stolen, according to NJ.com.

Since June 11, the "AC Bandit" has hit Morris Township homes on Gaston Road, Whitehead Road, Picatinny Road and most recently last Sunday—the day before the Madison incident—on Burnham Road, police said. Jewelry and electronics were reported stolen from three of the homes, …

Morris County Park Commission application only includes design and engineering work.
The Morris County Park Commission is seeking state funding to have design and engineering work done for a proposal to extend the Traction Line Recreation Trail farther into Madison, according to Madison Mayor Bob Conley. The mayor said at Monday's Borough Council meeting he received the update in a conversation with David Helmer, the executive director of the Morris County Park Commission. A Park Commisison engineer approached Madison's governing body two weeks ago to see if the borough would support the project, but was met with unanimous opposition from Borough Council members, though the mayor said he supports the plan. The commission has heard Madison's concerns, but is proceeding with the application for design and engineering work—…

The Morris County Park Commission envisions continuing the trail from Ford Mansion to Madison, running between the rail line and the backyards of Madison homes.
A plan by the Morris County Park Commission to extend the Traction Line Recreation Trail, which runs from Morristown National Historical Park in Morristown along a New Jersey Transit line and ends at Danforth Road in Madison at Fairleigh Dickinson University, has detractors and supporters. The Park Commission envisions continuing the 10-foot wide, paved path to Elm Street, running between the rail line and the backyards of Madison homes. Opponents, including the entire Madison Borough Council, cite privacy concerns for the neighboring homeowners, while supporters, including the mayor, say expanding a trail that connects Morristown and Madison would be good for the borough. The entire six-member Borough Council not only unanimously voted …

Christie, Guadagno and other officials celebrate groundbreaking of real estate giant's new headquarters.
Gov. Chris Christie, Lt. Gov Kim Guadagno and Madison Mayor Robert Conley stood with silver shovels over a pile of dirt Wednesday morning to mark the groundbreaking of Realogy's site in Madison. The international real estate firm is relocating its headquarters from Parsippany to the new location at 175 Park Ave. "Think about where we were two years ago," the governor said before a crowd of state and local officials and members of the business community. "The responsiveness or lack thereof of state government was so bad, that a worldwide company like Realogy, which we were fortunate to have headquartered in New Jersey, was literally ready to walk out the door without any type of reaction from the governor's office." Two years ago, the …
