South Orange is a 2.8 square mile community spread out alongside New Jersey's South Mountain. Though fully developed, South Orange retains some vestiges of village life, including gas street lighting. Utility lines are in the back yards, rather than cluttering streets. The town of 16,390 people has an active downtown business section, currently enjoying an exciting rejuvenation. The village presents a diverse palate of popular cuisine.
The Montrose section of town provides the setting for mostly large, vintage homes, replete with interesting and varied architectural detail, situated on generous parcels of land. The Newstead section has predominately younger, Postwar Colonials, Ranches and Split Levels, sitting atop South Orange in an elegant setting. The South Mountain section offers diversity in housing, with lots of Tudor homes dating often in the 1930s, set along the side of the mountain.
South Orange shares a quality school system with Maplewood. There are six elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school and a reputation for academic excellence. Columbia High School offers advanced placement, college prep and vocational courses, as well as classes in film making and journalism. Columbia offers 25 clubs, from astronomy to chess and 23 varsity sports.
Sixty-two acres of parkland. two thirds of which consist of Meadowland Park and adjacent to Cameron Field, provide five baseball diamonds, 15 lighted tennis courts, a soccer field, duck pond, playgrounds, Baird Community Center and a fine outdoor pool complex and favorite sledding hill.
Every four years in a non-partisan election, a village president and six trustees are elected.
South Orange is twenty minutes via N.J. Transit Midtown Direct train. Downtown train commute is also available, as is bus service.
