open space through its participation in the New Jersey Farmland
Preservation, the State Green Acres and the Middlesex County
open space programs.
Dunellen Borough H1
Established in 1887, Dunellen boasts an impressive selection of
shops and restaurants with a mix of small-town values, business
activity, great public education, a variety of community programs,
five parks and quiet suburban neighborhoods. Dunellen provides
small-town responsiveness and large-city-quality services to its
citizens, businesses and visitors.
East Brunswick Township I6
East Brunswick’s 22.5 square miles are home to a diverse
population of nearly 50,000 people. A strategic location and a
progressive outlook have fostered the dynamic growth of desirable
residential developments, an excellent school system, shopping
centers, state-of-the-art office complexes and medical services.
The western side of town is the sparsely developed 6.7-square-mile
Rural Preservation Zone. Recreational offerings include Crystal
Springs Aquatic Facility, tennis courts, private health and swim clubs
and fourteen public parks on 600 acres, as well as county-owned
Tamarack Golf Club.
Edison Township J2–3
Visitors are always welcome to Edison, one of America’s Best
Places to Live, according to Money Magazine. This 32-squaremile
township of more than 100,000 residents is the home of
Thomas Alva Edison’s famed Menlo Park laboratory, where the
incandescent light bulb was perfected and sound was first recorded.
Its high-achieving public schools, central location, vibrant business
environment and diverse community make Edison a great place to
live, work and raise a family.
