Central Business District

Young Professionals

The Central Business District is where young professionals should look first. Plenty of relatively inexpensive condo and apartment living a walk from a lot of the downtown businesses make it ideal for local workers. Newark Penn Station is also located here so a commute into Manhattan is about as convenient as it can be. It’s also home to plenty of restaurants and bars for nightlife when you want to walk to go out.

Forest Hill


Forest Hill is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in Newark and ideal for families. Large Victorian and Colonial homes are surrounded by the best public schools in the city and plenty of outdoor options like the Althea Gibson Tennis Courts or generally running around on the Branch Brook Park trails. Weequahic is another great area for families with more green space than any other neighborhood in the city and reasonable prices for single-family homes.
