"I love living and working in Summit, NJ. I own a shop in Summit and live on the Summit/New Providence border. Downtown Summit has so much to offer. There is very easy access to delightful and creative shops (including mine, Badawang Art) casual and fine restaurants both, and of course, all the necessities such as banks, services, and entertainment options are only a few of the amenities. I can walk or drive to all of these, or I can take the train to New York seven days a week right from Summit. The community is diverse and always changing. Summit has beautiful homes, a well maintained downtown, easy access to all the surrounding suburbs, New York City and the Jersey Shore."
