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.

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.

In mid-May, Patch reported on six thefts involving unlocked vehicles that occurred over a two-day period in the township. Among the items reported …
