The home of Seton Hall University, South Orange is a diverse and dynamic town. Together with neighboring Maplewood the area is often referred to as SOMA. Like Maplewood, homes in South Orange vary widely in style and layout, including many turn-of-the-century Victorians, Tudors and Colonials. South Orange also has a number of condos and apartments, especially near the train station and downtown area, popular with Manhattan and Jersey City commuters. The center of South Orange is dominated by the historic, Tudor-style Village Hall and the gas lamps which still dot South Orange Avenue and surrounding streets. The village also boasts South Mountain Reservation, with the Turtle Back Zoo, Codey Arena (skating rink), hiking trails and waterfalls.
The South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC) contains a 439 seat theater offering music, theater and dance programs for the community. Seton Hall University also provides theater productions on campus and at SOPAC. In the village center, a variety of restaurants, from Ethiopian to Moroccan attest to the diversity of the community. South Orange was also the first community in the state of NJ to recognize civil unions for the LGBT community.
Centered at the intersection of South Orange Avenue, Valley Rd and Scotland Road, the village center is in a shallow valley between two ridges, one separating it from Newark and the other, First Watchung Mountain, offering spectacular views of the New York skyline. Unlike many some towns along the Morris and Essex train line, South Orange has a wide range of properties at all price ranges from small condos to million dollar mansions at the top of the mountain. Whatever your price range, you are sure to find something to meet your needs in South Orange!
