About Summit
Incorporated as a city in 1899, Summit is located about 20 miles west of New York City. This six-square-mile Union County town has a population of approximately 21,000, many of whom commute to Manhattan on a daily basis. Its reputation as an affluent community is backed up by the 2000 Census which identified Summit as having the 16th highest income among New Jersey’s 566 municipalities. Summit is surrounded by other upscale locales including Millburn, Chatham, New Providence and Berkeley Heights.

The heart of Summit’s downtown is Springfield Avenue, where sidewalk cafes, boutiques, and restaurants are joined by spas, art galleries and magnificent turn-of-the-century homes.  Summit sponsors special events all year ‘round, from 5K runs for charities to specially-themed weekends like Murder Mystery or Girls’ Night Out.
