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. 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. As summer moves into fall, join us for free Downtown After Sundown concerts every Friday and Saturday evening, our Jersey Fresh Farmers Market every Wednesday from 2pm - 7pm and, on September 21, the inaugural PlayDay South Orange, where you can literally play in the street!

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