Getting Around Seventh Avenue
Around Seventh Avenue
The neighborhood consists of single-family homes and duplexes as well as some apartment complexes located across from Branch Brook Park and near the Broad Street station. The neighborhood is one of the most convenient areas for working professionals looking to commute into New York or other parts of New Jersey, as frequent bus and rail transportation is within walking distance.
Real estate here is on the moderate end of the spectrum, while less expensive than the Forest Hills section located east of Bloomfield Avenue. Seventh Avenue is more closely comparable to parts of Roseville.
Residents will find a number of local restaurants and bars on Bloomfield Avenue and Broadway, with options ranging from popular Portuguese BBQ restaurants to Puerto Rican and Cuban cuisine. The neighborhood is a few blocks south of Upper Roseville, where a wide range of restaurants and bars offer Portuguese BBQ, Italian, and Ecuadorian flavor.
Bloomfield Avenue, which separates the Seventh Avenue area from Mt. Pleasant and Forest Hill, is a vibrant commercial corridor with constant traffic and activity. Seventh Avenue is located near the southern half of Branch Brook Park, a 360-acre green space with jogging, biking, and walking paths, a roller skating facility, tennis courts, athletic fields, and a world-famous Cherry Blossom Festival. A landmark facility located on Ridge Street is the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart, the fifth-largest cathedral in North America and the seat of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese. The famed New Hope Baptist Church, where pop icon Whitney Houston attended, is located just a couple of blocks south on Sussex Avenue.
The neighborhood is close to many popular bars and restaurants located in Roseville, downtown, and the Ironbound. A few late-night destinations can also be found along Bloomfield Avenue. Movie complexes and nightclubs are just a short cab ride away.
Attend mass at the Cathedral or other local churches in the area, or enjoy a bike ride, run, or picnic at Branch Brook Park. The neighborhood is minutes away from University Heights, Downtown Newark, and Lincoln Park, where art galleries, bookstores, and cafes offer additional options.
The Newark Light Rail stations at Bloomfield Avenue, Park Avenue, Orange Street, and Broad Street station are within walking distance for most residents. Newark Broad Street station, which connects to New York and Hoboken, is within walking distance for residents further south or catch a NJ Transit bus to connect there. The neighborhood is right near I-280, the Essex Freeway, which leads to the Holland Tunnel or to points west within the county.
