Maplewood Real Estate
Maplewood is the ideal town for people who appreciate a mixed makeup of neighbors, but crave the space and backyard that New York can’t offer at the same prices. Maplewood residents pride themselves on being open-minded, creative, and having a thoughtful outlook as a community.
The heart of Maplewood Village is a corridor of shops & restaurants that spans four bustling blocks packed with everything from home décor and apparel shops to florists, a movie theater and Words Bookstore. If the plethora of restaurants isn’t enough, Maplewood is also rife with yoga studios and dance, art and acting classes for all ages.
Maplewood boasts six park facilities – many of which have playgrounds, tennis, basketball or paddleball courts, and playing fields. The Maplewood community hosts an annual 4th of July circus, and arts walk showcasing local artist, a wellness fair, weekly farmer’s markets & a weekend long concert series called Maplewoodstock. Residents enjoy easy access to South Mountain Reservation, which offers picnic areas, a dog park, and trails for hiking, jogging, horseback riding & cross country skiing. If you are more of an indoor activity enthusiast, there are always concerts, shows & movies at the South Orange Performing Arts Center, Bergdorff Center & Papermill Playhouse in Millburn.
The train station is a stop on the Midtown Direct train line into NYC, making it an easy walk for many Maplewood residents, and the direct train travels the 18 miles to New York Penn Station in 31 minutes during rush hour!
