Families who commute to Manhattan have chosen Summit as their home for decades—preferring the large homes, good schools, and easy access to the New Jersey Transit rail link.
Summit has what its Mayor refers to as “The Trifecta” – a quick, 40-minute commute to New York City, great public and private schools, and a vibrant downtown district. The City is also in the midst of an ambitious, multi-year redevelopment project, including a residential, commercial, office and entertainment project adjacent to downtown, as well as open space for community gatherings and events. In terms of real estate, the market is robust with residential options of all sizes and price ranges.
Gorgeous and historical buildings such as the Summit Opera House, originally built in the 1890s, and the Carter House, built in 1741, give downtown Summit a whimsical and homey feel. The Summit Playhouse is known for its lively dramatic performances and the Visual Arts Center of New Jersey is recognized statewide for its programs. All are part of the reason that the Summit Downtown Historic District is on the United States Department of Interior National Register of Historic Places. The Watchung Reservation surrounds part of the city, giving outdoor enthusiasts and nature lovers an endless source of exploration.
