Located just 34 miles from Manhattan, Watchung offers residents the comfort of a quiet, picturesque family-friendly setting all while providing the convenience of living close to the city. People are enthusiastic about their love for Watchung, and residents describe their charming community as fun, unpretentious, diverse, and like family! 

“[Watchung has a] great sense of community. [There’s a] rising influx of ‘young’ families from NYC/Hoboken (for the better!!). People are very friendly. There is an incredibly unique balance of privacy (larger properties offer privacy) but people are very open, friendly and authentic. Fosters great friendships for kids and adults alike.  Also very close to the city which makes for great commute and easy access to ‘shopping towns’ like Westfield/Bridgewater/Summit with the benefit of a sleepy town feel.” -Amy D.
