An attractive community of upland and meadows, the town of Kearny is a well-developed municipality with a concentration of industry just five miles south of a residential sector that enjoys a prime location on a scenic ridge. This area provides a pleasing mix of residential neighborhoods where well-kept older homes in a variety of architectural styles are shaded by mature greenery. Some of these long-established neighborhoods harmonize a selection of modern two-family homes and contemporary condominiums with single-family homes. Recreational amenities include county parks, playgrounds, athletic fields, league sports, tennis courts, and a swimming pool. Retail and industrial expansion continue in the well-balance community. Transportation efficiencies include Interstate 280, the New Jersey Turnpike, and bus or train service to New York City.
