Summit is located in Union County and has a population of approximately 21,457 residents. With a vibrant city center boasting unique shops, cinema, fine cuisine and interesting galleries, it’s a lovely place to call home. Located 25 miles west of New York City, it is only a short ride away via NJ Transit’s Midtown Direct service with the most express trains in the area. If visiting Summit by car, Summit offers abundant free customer parking within a block of most stores.
In addition to international dining and fine shops there is a wide variety of professional services, galleries, spas and salons. Art lovers will find the New Jersey Center for Visual Arts within easy walking distance of downtown. Also known for the 13 acre Reeves Reed Arboretum, Beacon Hill Swim, Tennis and Hockey Club, people enjoy the easy access to Rt. 24 and 78 taking them easily in any direction east or west, including The Mall at Short Hills and Newark Airport. Visitors enjoy being able to share big celebrations or stay the night at the historic Grand Summit Hotel, also just a few blocks from downtown.
Next to the Free Summit Library is the Summit Area YMCA, The Connection for Women and Families, and down the street is also the Summit Playhouse and the Village Green, the scene of summertime movies, concerts and many community events.
