Ever since Summit became a city in 1899, it has managed to maintain its aura of tree-lined streets, stately homes and century-old buildings. Almost completed is a $4.3 million renovation of its thriving business district, displaying new curbs and sidewalks, landscaping and Victorian lamp posts.
In addition, it is a hub for transportation, and with the advent of Midtown Direct, has become increasingly popular to home buyers.
Summit is also the home of Overlook Hospital, an expanded public library, a YMCA, New Jersey Center for Visual Arts, a chapter of the American Red Cross, Women's Resource Center, numerous houses of worship, a municipal golf course, community swimming pool and recreation center.
Summit is home to approximately 20,000 residents who occupy its 6.1 square miles.
