Community Description

Nicknamed the “Crossroads of New Jersey,” East Orange is conveniently located at the intersection of the Garden State Parkway and Interstate 280, a few miles from Newark Liberty International Airport and less than 30 minutes from Manhattan. Originally founded as a township in 1863, East Orange was an agriculturally rich area populated by oil tycoons and industrials. Fast forward to 1945, East Orange was ranked the 20th best place to live in the country and named the “Cleanest City in America.” Naturally, this reputation became a destination for urban renewal, prompting mass migrations from the South and across the globe. This rich and diverse history is a distinct characteristic of East Orange, NJ—a cultural mecca of people, cuisines, and interests in the Northeast.
