Isn't it a bit too much to be giving the phone numbers of city officials on Wikipedia? What is encyclopedic about that?

'West Orange has the largest population of Jewish and Roman Catholic residents in Essex County.' This claim is unfounded. I find it hard to believe Newark doesn't have the largest population of Roman Catholic residents in Essex County. This just goes to show the misinformation that gets added to Wikipedia.

"Crime" section ...[edit]

The "Crime" section contains no citations (and the numbers are inconsistent with those publically available on websites such as city-data, etc).

Also, recent edits refer to "White flight" without any citations. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.221.193.95 (talk) 13:58, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

West Orange Flag[edit]

Does the township have its own flag? If so, what is it, and can it be added to the page? AlbertTom (talk) 16:24, 19 June 2010 (UTC)

  • No, West Orange does not have a flag, they do however have a seal which hangs in the Township Council chambers if someone could get a picture of that I believe that should surfice. TheGoofyGolfer (talk) 00:50, 26 June 2011 (UTC)
