In addition, the New Jersey Transit 139 bus route stops within walking distance of the property, offering residents public transportation to New York City.
The community also benefits from the area’s strong demographics with an average household income of $175,331 within a three-mile radius and a growing 55-plus population, which is currently 17,584 within the same area.
