THE COMMUNITY: New Brunswick, New Jersey, is a vibrant city of 49,000 residents, a number that triples during the business day with college students, corporate and business employees, hospital and healthcare workers, and visitors. It is a community with rich, diverse neighborhoods, a bustling downtown and an innovative and popular cultural arts center. Located in the heart of the state and less than one hour from the metropolitan markets and ports of Newark, New York, Philadelphia and Wilmington, businesses are attracted to the area because of the central location and topnotch workforce.
In the quality of life categories – housing, jobs, education, open space and parklands, and the arts – New Brunswick and Middlesex counties consistently rank high. Within a few city blocks converge Johnson & Johnson’s world headquarters; Rutgers, the state university of New Jersey; three professional theaters (New Brunswick’s theater arts center houses the George Street Playhouse, the State Theater and the Tony award-winning Crossroads Theater); and several four-star restaurants.
The city’s place in the history of the country was assured when the Continental Congress, convened in Philadelphia in 1776, sent a committee to New Brunswick to “inspect the troops” of the Revolutionary Army. Their report was instrumental in the vote for independence.
This is a place where people want to live because it’s affordable, they can work close to home, and they can enjoy the diversity of leisure-time activities.
