Space for family and friends to relax and still have easy access to all New York City has to offer.

The quaint, upscale, village of Maplewood was named by New York Magazine as one of the 'Top Ten Suburbs in the New York Metro Area.' It has a small-town, All-American, feel, and yet has a surprisingly short direct train commute to New York City. CNN's Money Magazine ('Best Places to Live in America'') says of Maplewood, 'Only a 30-minute train ride from Manhattan...small-town charm, but with a painless commute....Colonial style homes on beautiful, tree-lined streets.''

Additional Location Information

Maplewood is overflowing with all-American, small-town charm, yet is only about 35min. (by train) to the heart of Manhattan. With it's collection of quaint shops and restaurants, along with a 'Mid-Town Direct' Train Station to New York City, Maplewood makes a fabulous base for exploring the New York City area. Shop, sight-see, and enjoy the energy and hectic pace of the big city but still have the opportunity to return home to peace and tranquility with your friends and family and relax in your house or in your backyard.

Getting To Maplewood: Flying into Newark Airport is the quickest and easiest way to reach Maplewood – it is only 15min. by car to the house. A car service can be prearranged to meet you upon your arrival, or you can just go to the taxi stand and give them the address. There is also the option of taking a public bus or train. Car Rental is available both at the Airport and in Maplewood (Enterprise and Hertz will pick you up at the house and take you to pick up a car if you would like one for only a portion of your stay.)

From JFK Airport in Queens, New York, the journey will take about an hour by car (more during rush hour traffic). You can prearrange for a car service to drive you to the house, rent a car at the airport, or take public transportation from JFK into New York Penn Station and transfer to a NJTransit Train or Bus to Maplewood.

Getting to New York City from Maplewood: We highly recommend taking the train from Maplewood into New York City rather than attempting to drive and park in Manhattan. The walk from the house to the train station takes about 15 minutes and is through a very pleasant, pretty, quiet, and safe, residential area.

If you do not feel like walking, there is a town shuttle bus that will pick you up at the stop in front of the house (The fare is $1, exact change, paid to the driver when you board.) The “Jitney” shuttle bus operates to coordinate with morning and evening commuter trains to and from New York and Hoboken, NJ (If you wish to connect to the PATH subway trains or take the ferry downtown).

Trains to and from New York are very frequent and the last train home from the New York Penn Station is at about 1am; please check the NJTransit website for exact train times as they change frequently.
