South Orange is known for- 

Thirty minutes on the Midtown direct trainline is all it takes you to travel from South Orange Village  to midtown Manhattan. Sound like a commuters dream? Yes indeed it is. This Community is home to 16,000 residents and easily separates itself from the small town suburban stigma that comes with most tree lined streets.  Founded in 1904, South orange was  originally part of territory purchased from Lenni Lenape Native Americans back in 1666 by Robert Treat who also founded Newark NJ years before the land acquisition. Before it was founded, the land that is now called south orange was known as the “Uplands” to most back then before it official name change in May of  1904.

Throughout the years, many homeowners have maintained and updated their homes without compromising the true integrity of theirs houses original design or curb appeal which sustains the villages elegant and historic charm. For example, the Historic Montrose Park District of the Village features  Grandiose Estates with magnificent lawns and streets with original cobble stone gullies, all the way down to the gas powered streetlights. Some residents say the village is a fusion of New England charm mixed with the fashion and  hustle and bustle of the New York city commuters and view from the top of the mountain.
