A Message from the Honorable Mayor Dahlia O. Vertreese
Welcome to the Township of Hillside website.
My administration is grateful for the opportunity to serve this great community nestled just 12 miles away from New York City. Hillside's location makes it a hidden jewel in Northern New Jersey. We share a border with Newark, the largest city in the state of New Jersey, and we are just minutes away from Newark International Airport, Penn Station train terminal, and Port Elizabeth, and Port Newark, and major roadways (Garden State Parkway, Routes 1, 22, and Interstate-78) that provide quick and direct access to New York City.
Hillside is an ideal township to live, work, and start a business. We are the proud home of the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, the largest anti-hunger and anti-poverty organization in the State of New Jersey.
Incorporated in 1913, Hillside has a long history of servicing a robust and diverse population of residents. Hillside takes tremendous pride in our ability to maintain a quiet setting, an essential characteristic of a suburban community, while conveniently located next to major urban municipalities. As we embark upon the daily journey to improve the quality of life for all who live, work, and play here, we eagerly welcome and look forward to your participation and feedback. "Building Connections for Our Future Together"
Regards, Mayor Dahlia O. Vertreese
