There’s a reason – actually, many – why renters choose to settle in Paterson. For one, it’s a city just outside a major metropolis, close to all of the famous attractions in nearby New York City. Cultural diversity is abundant in Paterson, with its wide range of international cuisines and shops. Known as “Silk City” for its heritage in the textile industry, Paterson is now home to a variety of businesses and industries.

There are many unique districts in Paterson. The Great Falls Historic District is one, and has seen tired warehouses converted to comfortable and modern apartments. An unsung repository of American history and culture, Paterson is encompassed with teachable sites. Great Falls National Historical Park served as a primary power supply during the city’s early industrial boom.

Adjacent to the sprawling historical park is Art Factory, displaying a variety of paintings, sculptures, and photography. In addition, William Paterson University is a veteran host of cultural events like concerts, stage plays, and exhibitions.

Residents of Paterson will enjoy its community farmers market, plus several nearby outlet malls and the popular Westfield Garden State Plaza. Convenience to I-80 as well as Paterson Station is comforting for commuters and travelers alike.

Living in Paterson

  • History

    An unsung repository of American history and culture, Paterson is a city chock full of teachable sites. Among them is the Great Falls National Historic Site. Serving as a primary power source during Paterson’s early industrial boom, the Falls enjoys statuses of both historic landmark and civil engineering landmark. It is also a national park where adults and children can see many biological and geological points of interest. Adjacent to this park is the Art Factory, a multi-media complex of galleries and studios showing paintings, sculptures and photographs. Educational programs and tours are among its offerings. In addition, nearby William Paterson University sponsors concerts, stage plays and exhibitions throughout the year for serious patrons and curious children.

  • Restaurants

    The Port Arthur restaurant dishes up some of the best Cantonese fare in the Greater New York region. If Jamaican food tempts your palate, you can head over to Linn’s Place in the Eastside neighborhood. Reflecting the large Middle Eastern population of Paterson, the Sahara restaurant specializes in cuisine from Turkey, the Mediterranean region and North Africa. Not to be forgotten is dining at The Experience, where old soul food favorites are prepared with modern culinary methods.

    Francesco’s Restaurant in Woodland Park (formerly known as West Paterson) provides lunch, dinner, and catering menus with dishes like Veal Milanese and Linguini Macrechiara. A survey of Paterson, NJ restaurants is incomplete without including the Dominican El Tropico, Banana King, and Griselda’s.

  • Shopping

    Food shopping is a special pleasure with the presence of the Paterson Farmers Market. Open all year for three-quarters of a century, this food court offers fresh seasonal produce grown by New Jersey farmers, as well as fresh meat and fish. The city also fields a large number of supermarkets, specialty stores and bodegas.

    Most Paterson rentals are only a short ride from Northern New Jersey’s largest retail malls. The Garden State Plaza, for example, houses 300 or more stores that sell everything from jewelry to men’s suits to frozen yogurt. Closer to home is the Center City Mall in Paterson’s central business district. Just a block from City Hall, this mall is home to an eight-screen movie theater and myriad retail shops that enjoy a reduced sales tax of 3.5 percent.
