The Championship Round has ended. The winner will be announced Tuesday, September 26 at noon.
It all comes down to this. After weeks of heated battle, South Orange and New Providence will square off in the Championship Round of the Hot Town Showdown, presented by Kings Food Markets.
South Orange, which defeated Weehawken in Round Three, boasts diverse architecture, historic landmarks and more than 1,400 gaslight lanterns, which give the Essex County village ample character. In addition, residents and visitors enjoy a lively downtown bustling with shops and entertainment.
New Providence edged out Cranbury to advance to the final. The Union County town has grown a lot in the past few years. Residents revel in the small-town charm, easy access to public transit, and the abundant parkland.
The bracket-style competition started with 16 contenders on August 29. New Jersey Monthly picked the 16 towns in the competition based on factors like rising home prices, and time spent on the market when homes are up for sale. We also sought input from real-estate professionals—and we listened to the “buzz” in the marketplace. Each week throughout September, we cut the field in half, based on your votes.

Make sure to vote for your favorites each week.
