No, Forest Hills is not that close to the Path Trains. You could take a bus which would take up to 15 minutes. Walking would take a bit longer.

No, you would have to take a bus to get to the path train. It is quite a long walk but only about a 10-15 minute drive.

Forest Hill is the historic section of Newark. Most of the homes in FH tend to be large mansions with high ceilings and several rooms. The light rail stops there which will take you to Newark for the Path or NJ Transit trains.

There are beautiful homes in the Forest Hill section of Newark. You need to get on the Heller Parkway Station and then to Penn Station Newark and then to the Path to NYC.. If you send me your email address I will send you homes that are on the market now.

Thank you,
