Mayor's Message

About Piscataway

Piscataway was founded in 1666, and officially incorporated in 1798. The community, the fifth oldest municipality in New Jersey, has grown from Indian territory, through a colonial period and is one of the links in the earliest settlement of the Atlantic seacoast that ultimately led to the formation of the United States. Piscataway, located in Middlesex County, comprises 19.1 square miles, is 35 miles from New York City, and within 250 miles of one-quarter of the nation's total population.

The township has a fair percentage of apartments, townhouses, and condominiums although most housing accommodations are single-family dwellings. The township was named by MONEY magazine in 2008, 2010 and 2014 as one of the best places to live in the United States.

RWJ Medical School, several data centers, and many national and international companies providing professional, scientific, and technical services are located in the township.
