Newark, NJ 07104
This pre-World War II area is an affluent neighborhood of the city of Newark. Elias Heller was one of the first developers to build an estate here and was followed by wealthy Newarkers who started building their palatial mansions here. Beautiful structures that are designed aesthetically is quite a common feature here. Though few of the old houses were demolished and replaced with swanky apartments, most of the historic homes have been preserved. Popular landmarks include Tiffany factory, Newark Public Library and Sydenham House. Notable residents of Forest Hill are Maria Jeritza, Peter Ballantine and Louis Comfort Tiffany. The New Jersey Historical Society occasionally conducts tours of this area, and the home-owners open their doors for the tourists.
