With its iconic gas-lit streets and beautiful historic architecture, South Orange is one of the New York area’s most distinctive suburban communities. Predominately a residential township, the local rental market features a range of apartments and condos suitable for any budget. The thriving Downtown district is packed with dozens of unique restaurants, specialty shops, and entertainment venues to ensure that you never go bored in your off hours: within just a few blocks, you can start your day with a hearty breakfast at Grid Iron Waffle Shop, enjoy a classy evening out at Papillon 25, and catch a band at South Mountain Tavern.

You’ll benefit from direct access to huge parks and nature preserves, with Cameron Park sitting adjacent to Downtown and the sprawling South Mountain Reservation bordering the west side of town. South Orange is home to Seton Hall University, serving around 10,000 students and contributing heavily to the community’s intellectual and cultural climate.

Just 20 miles from New York City, South Orange has historically been a popular spot for commuters, with easy access to the city via road and rail.
