Summit

Summit, NJ is the pivot-point of the Morris and Essex train line. Express trains make the commute from Summit to Manhattan, Hoboken or Newark shorter than from towns several stops closer to these cities. Also, as it is located at the junction of the Morristown and Gladstone branches of the line, more trains stop here than any other station except the terminus stops New York Penn Station and the Hoboken terminal. This makes Summit more popular with New York commuters than any other town on the line. Summit has a high concentration of residents working in finance and management. As a result, homes in Summit can be significantly more expensive than other towns along the line.
