About Westfield
Providing a pleasing mix of city convenience and suburban ambiance, Westfield is one of the state’s most popular towns. It continues to attract residents from all walks of life who strive to maintain the town’s uniquely American appeal.

With its lively downtown, gracious homes and involved citizenry, Union County’s Westfield is truly a residential haven. Visitors may feel as if they’ve stepped back in time when they enter the town’s bustling shopping district. In fact, the retail part of town has been featured in commercials, major movies and television series based on its scenic, old-fashioned charm.

In an era of big box stores and mega-malls, Westfield takes great pride in maintaining an attractive downtown. Small boutiques, restaurants, cafes, a movie theater and chain stores like Lord & Taylor and The Gap are part of the appealing streetscape. The Downtown Westfield Corporation was established to manage growth, plan special events and implement improvements. The corporation was so successful that Westfield received the Great American Main Street award from the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 2004.
