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 population is approximately 56,044. The township has a fair percentage of apartments, townhouses, and condominiums although most housing accommodations are single-family dwellings. Single family homes in 1998 ranged from $120,000 - $1,000,000. UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, and 189 buildings on the Busch and Livingston campuses of Rutgers, the State University are located in Piscataway.

Since the opening in 1960 of Interstate Highway 287, the township has proven a highly desirable location for suburban development and many Fortune 500 corporations including Telcordia Technologies, Colgate Palmolive Technology Center, and Johnson & Johnson Health Systems are located in the township. The township's prime location with its 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 development, Piscataway has managed to maintain its friendly welcoming atmosphere, making it a wonderful place to live, work and play.
