Summit, New Jersey

The City of Summit, is a mature suburban community located 35 miles due west of New York City. Summit’s downtown area, ideal geographic location, culturally active community & highly rated public schools have made Summit a first choice for many relocating to the Tri-State area. Once a resort town for New Yorkers to escape the New York City pollution; Summit became a city in 1899.  Beautifully restored turn of the century homes, off set by mature tree line streets and a thriving downtown area reflects the towns’ century old pride and soul.
