Welcome to Westfield

A premier suburban-urban experience

In the heart of Union County is Westfield, a commuter suburb that offers the rare combination of a bucolic residential lifestyle and a vibrant, urban city center. Indeed, few areas can claim neighborhoods of mature, tree-lined streets, sidewalks, and well-manicured lawns anchored by a gorgeous downtown district that appears plucked from one of New York's enviable streetscapes.

Speaking of which, location plays a huge role in Westfield's continued popularity among families and young professionals. Midtown Manhattan is a 30 to 40-minute drive away while the train takes just under an hour. Excellent schools and plenty of parkscapes further enhances the town's bonafides.

Housing in Westfield offers a dynamic range of options. Cape Cods and Colonials are prevalent throughout the community, as well as traditional ranches and more contemporary builds. Modest two to three-bedroom homes range from $500,000 to $700,000. Larger estate homes, clustered in the community's northwestern corner, run anywhere from $1.5 million up to $3 million.

What to Love

  • World-class downtown, regularly recognized as one of the state's best shopping and dining destinations.
  • Beautiful, peaceful neighborhoods with large lots and tree-lined streets—many of which are within walking distance of area schools and downtown.
  • Great location on the outskirts of Newark and an hour train ride into Midtown Manhattan.

People & Lifestyle

To fully understand the broad appeal of Westfield, look no further than the city's accolades in recent years: Top 20 Best Small Cities in America, Best Destination in New Jersey for Shopping, Favorite Downtown, Best Town for Families, and one of the Coolest Places in New Jersey for New Yorkers.

Westfield is the premier option of New York-Newark suburbs for new families establishing roots, transplants easing into city life, or urban-dwellers escaping the steel and glass towers to the east.

Dining, Shopping & Entertainment

The undisputed center of activity in Westfield is its downtown. Big-name retailers like Urban Outfitters and Gap mingle with trendy boutiques such as Ruby and Jenna Clothes Shop and specialty stores like Savory Spice Shop. In total, downtown has over 200 stores and over 50 restaurants and foodservice establishments.

This vibrant commercial area features many health-centric stores, yoga studios, and alternative groceries, such as Trader Joe's. Popular eateries include classic Italian at Ferraro's Restaurant, French-infused fare at Chez Catherine, and Mediterranean plates at Limani Seafood Grill.

Things to Do

More than just lovely houses and a peerless downtown, Westfield has a vibrant cultural and arts scene. Popular events include the Westfield Street Fair and Crafts Show every August and the Westfield Festifall in September. Between June and October, the Westfield Farmers Market takes up residence at the downtown train station.

Westfield is home to nine parks totaling over 207 acres. These include the 106-acre Tamaques Park and its mile-long jogging path, eight tennis courts, two playgrounds, and numerous other sports fields and picnic areas. Scenic 44-acre Brightwood Park is a heavily-wooded sanctuary with a pond and waterfall at its center.

Golfers will enjoy the exclusive and highly-touted Echo Lake Country Club. Across from the club's front entrance is the Nomahegan Swim & Tennis Club.
