living in summit
Once a retreat for wealthy New Yorkers, Summit is now the year round home of many venerable NJ residents. It has grown into a destination hub for commuters to NYC (20 miles to the East), shopping enthusiasts and those who appreciate fine culture. Summit is home to top notch public schools as well as some of the area's most prestigious private schools. It is diverse with the charm of a small town but with all of the amenities of a sprawling city offering a rich variety of restaurants and shops. With hundreds of events and activities, including the Reeves-Reed Arboretum, Summit is an ideal place to raise children.
