East Orange is a New Jersey Transit station on the Morris and Essex line in East Orange, Essex County, New Jersey, United States. This elevated station was built in 1923 for the Lackawanna and now has trains from the Morristown Line and the Gladstone Branch, including service to Hoboken Terminal and Midtown Direct service to New York Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan. The station is next to the westbound lanes of Interstate 280 about five hundred yards west of the Garden State Parkway. The East Orange City Hall is north of the station.

The head house has been on the state and federal registers of historic places since 1984,[3] listed as part of the Operating Passenger Railroad Stations Thematic Resource.[4]

ADA accessibility and viaduct improvements[edit]

Station owner New Jersey Transit decided to perform work at East Orange station to improve accessibility for the handicapped and to repair eighty-year-old viaducts at the station.[5] At a cost of $22.9m, repair work at East Orange, along with nearby stations Brick Church and South Orange, commenced in 2004.[6] East Orange received a mini-high level platform, the tracks surrounding the station were upgraded with concrete ties and the stairways leading to the platforms were replaced.[7]
