Get a taste of urban life in the Queen City
The second largest municipality in Union County, Plainfield is nicknamed “The Queen City” because of early comparisons to Denver, Colorado for its proximity to natural springs and the Watchung Mountains. Just a short train ride from Manhattan today, Plainfield is considered to be a New York City suburb, boasting the diverse benefits of urban and suburban living.
Primarily a residential area, Plainfield offers plenty of things to do. Residents and visitors can stroll through wide tree-lined streets, admire Victorian architecture in ten historic districts, attend Plainfield Symphony Orchestra concerts, stop by an award-winning public library, and visit the Shakespeare Garden in the expansive Cedar Brook Park. Plainfield also presents a variety of markets, shops, and restaurants in its commercial district stretched along Front Street.
Getting around from Plainfield is easy with access to multiple NJ Transit railroad stations, the Garden State Parkway, and Interstates 78 and 287.
