About Rutherford

Who is Best for this Location?

Rutherford stands out for families for its comfortable suburban surroundings and relatively quick commute into NYC via NJ Transit trains.

nieghborhood_vibe_48Neighborhood Vibe: Rutherford is a thriving city in New Jersey just ten miles outside of Manhattan. It’s an unassuming place that surprises visitors with the number of good restaurants, performing arts events, and sporting events hosted in Rutherford itself, not just in NYC.

getting_around_48Getting Around: It takes half an hour to reach NY Penn Station in Midtown via NJ Transit. From Penn Station, you may transfer to the Subway, the LIRR, or Amtrak. A car is necessary to get around Rutherford itself.

what_to_east_48What to Eat: Rutherford is a dry town, so you won’t find a good bar here. But there are plenty of good eateries. Rutherford Pancake House is a good choice for breakfast, try the chocolate chip pancakes or the Irish Benedict. For a quick meal, Boom Boom Chicken does Korean takeout. And if you’re in town for a special occasion, make a reservation at Cafe Matisse.

things_to_do_48Things to Do: There’s a thriving arts scene here thanks to Rutherford-native William Carlos Williams. The famed poet spent his life in Rutherford where he also worked as a doctor. Today, the William Carlos Williams Center for the Performing Arts has two performance halls for ballet, concerts, opera, and theater; there are performances year-round. Football fans find it convenient that MetLife Stadium (home of the NY Jets and NY Giants) is just a few miles away.
