Mayor's Message

Happy Birthday New Jersey!

New Jersey was born 350 years ago and Piscataway will celebrate our 350th birthday next year — 2016. While we may not agree on everything we do agree New Jersey has a fantastic shoreline. We also have turnpikes, parkways, and many other highways crisscrossing the state and, of course, there’s “Jersey attitude”. There are more than a few of us who probably would have to acknowledge that. READ MORE

 

About Piscatway

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 community is ethnically diverse with 24,642 White, 10,254 Black, 104 Native Americans, 12,532 Asian, 1,397 Multi-racial, 4,002 Hispanic (of any race), and 1,553 other. 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. Cited was the long and prestigious history of the community and noted also was that 189 buildings on Rutgers the State University campuses are located in Piscataway. RWJ Medical School, several data centers, and many national and international companies providing professional, scientific, and technical services are located in the township. The township has a highly educated workforce; 93.5 percent are high school graduates or higher.

Since the opening in 1960 of Interstate Highway 287, the township has proven a highly desirable location for suburban development and many Fortune 500 companies are located in the township. The township’s prime location with easy access to the New Jersey Turnpike, the Garden State Parkway, Routes 287, 78, 22, 27, and 18 make it especially attractive to commuters and corporations alike. Despite the township’s growth, Piscataway has maintained its friendly welcoming atmosphere, making it a wonderful place to live, work and play.
