South Orange Village Center
City Sense. Village Vibe.

Quiet, tree-lined streets with trademark gaslights wind through our historic community in the foothills of the Watchung Mountains just 15 miles west of New York City. All roads lead to our cosmopolitan Village Center, home to not only a vibrant assortment of unique shops and delectable restaurants, but also architecturally significant buildings including our Village Hall and Fire Department and the sleek, state-of-the-art South Orange Performing Arts Center (recently voted NJ's favorite small performing arts center!). We are also home to the world-class Seton Hall University, which 10,000 students call home each year.

With new restaurants and more than 300 brand new luxury apartments being built in the Village Center right now, South Orange continues to evolve as one of the most sought-after walkable downtowns in the region. To keep up with everything that's going on in the Village Center, sign up for our free weekly newsletter, The Village Vibe. Just click on the button to the right and your mailbox will be filled each week with the best of our Village with a fun, engaging and very quick read.

There's so much going on in South Orange Village Center. We hope you'll explore our website and visit us soon!
