University Heights houses four major academic institutions including the 38-acre Rutgers University campus and the New Jersey Institute of Technology. This urban neighborhood sits one short mile to the northwest of Downtown Newark, close enough to see the downtown skyline. Sprawling campuses take up much of the district's southern area, leaving the northern half for apartment rentals. Bike lanes and a light rail system provide transportation options that make it easy to get around, although you may opt to simply lace up your shoes in this walkable neighborhood. Locals thrill to the visual arts exhibitions, jazz performances, and theatrical presentations that make Rutgers a cultural mecca. Those who can't get enough head downtown to the Newark Museum and the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. Among the many dining options, residents recommend the Green Chickpea if you want to go healthy or Vonda's Kitchen if you long to dig into soul-infused comfort food.
