Just minutes removed from Newark and New York City, Elizabeth is a city built on shipping and industry, but has worked hard over the years to turn itself into an attractive residential community. The city has a rich history, evidenced in the grand architecture of public buildings like the library and the Union County Courthouse.

Mattano Park and the Elizabeth River Parkway give folks lots of space to stretch their legs and enjoy the outdoors while enjoying pleasant views of the Elizabeth River. Newark Liberty International Airport sits on the north side of town, and commuter rail service to NYC serves multiple stops in Elizabeth.
