Welcome to Maplewood


One of the Coolest Suburbs in America

Maplewood is noted for charming, tree-lined neighborhoods, gorgeous homes, and a village vibe. Residents love the quick commute to New York City, diversity, quaint downtown, thriving artistic community, and progressive values. Maplewood is community-focused, cultured, and family-friendly -- and a big draw for people migrating from nearby cities. Apartment Therapy dubbed the town one of the “coolest suburbs in America.” South Orange is Maplewood’s sister town; the two towns are known locally as SOMA or MAPSO.
Maplewood is 3.88 square miles.
FUN FACT: The New York Times described Maplewood as one the "least suburban of suburbs, celebrated by buyers for its culture and hip factor, as much as the housing stock and sophisticated post-city life."

What to love

Residents love the strong sense of community, the town’s walkability, immersion in culture, and beautiful parks.
Maplewood is home to the perfect blend of transplanted New Yorkers and long-time residents who share progressive and inclusive values.

Gorgeous architecture and quaint streets.
Garbars! Some locals have turned their garages into fun, quirky neighborhood bars.

Things to do

Bursting with charm, Rockwellian Maplewood Village is the heart of the town and filled with shops, restaurants, and friendly people. There are plenty of parks and green spaces to enjoy, including South Mountain Reservation's Wildflower Sculpture Park which showcases public art in a beautiful setting.

Check out family-friendly Maplewoodstock live music and art festival; the iconic rubber Duck Race; monthly live music at Rent Party which raises money for local non-profit BackPack Pals; arts, crafts, and music at the Art Walk and Music Fest, and the festive Dickens Village Christmas display.
