City GuideAvenel
Avenel, New Jersey, is a town within a town. Technically, not a city in its own right, Avenel sits inside the Woodbridge Township, and holds the odd, but not too uncommon, title of "unincorporated community."

Moving to Avenel, New Jersey, means you are moving to the Woodbridge Township in Middlesex County. Avenel is a census designated place that sits within Woodbridge. That is just a fancy way of saying it is a town of sorts recognized by the U.S. Census Bureau, but it hasn't grown up enough to gain the official title of "township" itself. Whether you consider yourself part of Woodbridge or Avenel, you are still opting to live in an area that is near enough to New York City to be fabulous, just minus the big city chaos.

Moving to Avenel

Location, location, location: that is what Avenel, New Jersey, brings to the table. As part of the Woodbridge Township, Avenel sits within 30 miles of the Big Apple. That makes it a practical home for anyone who commutes to the city or just wants the excitement of going to New York whenever possible.

Avenel is a small community, with a cozy number of residents, the 113th largest city in the state of New Jersey. It consists of three distinct neighborhoods, somewhat unusual for a census designated place, but critical information to have when looking for places to live in Avenel. The vacancy rate in the area tends to be tight. Whether shopping for a two-bedroom apartment or looking at condos for rent, it is best to think ahead.

Start looking for apartment rentals early, as much as six months in advance. Property owners in the area will likely be security conscious, and do full background checks. You will need a photo ID, proof of employment and possibly references as well.

Avenel Neighborhoods

The community of Avenel consists of three separate neighborhoods, situated side by side.

Town Center: A triangular-shaped area that begins at St. George's Ave., and ends at Edgar Rd. The Town Center neighborhood is convenient for those looking to travel on I-9 going into Rahway or Linden.

Madaline Dr/Tappen St: To the east of Town Center is the Madaline Dr/Tappen St. neighborhood, home to the famous St. Andrew's Roman Catholic Church. This area offers a combination of apartment rentals and single-unit houses.

Blair Rd/Milik St: Parallel to I-95 is the neighborhood of Blair Rd. and Milik St. This area borders Port Reading and sits at the edge of Woodbridge, near Carteret.

Why Choose Avenel?

Besides proximity to New York City, what else does Avenel offer residents? Avenel is also close to the ocean, putting you within driving distance of Perth Amboy and the Clay Pit Ponds State Park Preserve. If you cross over into Woodbridge Township, you can shop at the third biggest mall in New Jersey -- Woodbridge Center.

Transportation is readily available in this area. There are three train stations nearby, one located in Avenel, with routes that take you to New York's Penn Station, Newark's Penn Station, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C. and Boston.

New Jersey Transit offers a bus service from Avenel, as well, for those looking to go to Midtown Manhattan. Those driving to work will find themselves close to both the Garden State Parkway and the New Jersey Turnpike.

Avenel is one community of choice for those who want the best of both worlds. It offers all the shopping, mass transit and entertainment of big metro areas without the hubbub.
