The Village of Suffern
When the Lafayette Theater opened in 1924, tickets cost a quarter and silent films required an organist for their musical accompaniment. As entertainment evolved over the decades, so did the Lafayette. The single-screen movie palace became a multi-purpose venue, hosting live vaudeville shows, concerts, and countless film presentations. Recent repairs and restoration brought new life to the historic theater, where Suffern residents continue enjoying movies and live performances today.
From fast casual to fine dining, the village of Suffern has it all. Dozens of restaurants cater to every taste, with modern American fare alongside ethnic cuisine.
Woodbury Common boasts 220 stores from brands like Nike, Polo Ralph Lauren, Burberry, Prada, and many more. Shoppers have access to more than a dozen dining options at Woodbury, as well as free Wi-Fi and a child play area.
Suffern Station is situated directly next to The Sheldon and offers service to Hoboken and New York City in an hour or less. Trains run frequently during rush hour, offering residents plenty of options for their daily commute.
Palisades Center is a four-story mall with more than 200 stores, 15 sit-down restaurants, a bowling alley, ice rink, indoor ropes course, and comedy club.
Exercise is more than one-size-fits-all in Suffern. Go for a traditional gym experience or try one of the town’s kickboxing, dance, or yoga studios.
There’s no shortage of public and private golf courses near The Sheldon at Suffern Station. Try Suffern’s 150-acre Spook Rock Golf Course, featuring a 24-tee driving range as well as 18 regulation holes.
