Neighborhoods

Hillside Township is located in Northern New Jersey and is part of Union County. Its area of 2.7 square miles is relatively small in comparison to its two major neighbors, Newark and Elizabeth. Approximately 21,000 people reside there. The Garden State Parkway, Route 22, Newark Airport and access to Amtrak provide convenient transportation choices.

The township officially dates back to 1913 when it was incorporated by an act of the state legislature. Part of the community was inhabited as far back as 1666 when various groups came to settle in the Newark and Elizabethtown area.
