South Orange Village Center
Everybody Belongs Here.


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 Old Village Hall, the iconic Fire Department and the sleek, state-of-the-art South Orange Performing Arts Center (voted NJ's favorite small performing arts center four years running!). We are the proud home of world-class Seton Hall University, which 10,000 students call home each year.

South Orange is also the Live Music Capital of North Jersey, giving you the chance to see everything from jazz to blues to rock to flamenco live outdoors, in our performing arts spaces and in our restaurants and bars.

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!
