City Guide
Metuchen
Moving to Metuchen

Thinking what type of lodging may be available for you? Housing units in Metuchen may vary from one-bedroom apartments for rent to two-bedroom apartment for rent and high-rise apartments. Property rentals are relatively more expensive in Metuchen than the other town and cities around it, which are also more populated compared to Metuchen. But don't worry, for there will always be an available place fit for your budget -- you just have to allocate a decent amount of time in doing your apartment search in order to find the right apartment or house, and then add at the most 30 days to close on it.

Also, make sure to review your financial information such as credit score / profile, income, debts and your budget, for it takes about 30 days to get together and meet with a lender to make sure your financing is in order. It is also advised to take the time to talk to a realty agent who can act as your apartment locator and help you find that right home, and also to advise you regarding your financial budget. When everything is ready, you'll be all set to take that seat as the new resident in the "small town USA," where everything is within reach and anywhere is just a few minutes ride away.

Metuchen Neighborhoods

Robinvale: An urban neighborhood described as a small area with a lifestyle of a fine big city.

Christol Street / Grove Avenue: A wealthy urban neighborhood as well located at the northeast side of Metuchen. It is said that the Robinvale and Grove Avenue neighborhoods were created by Mr. Robbins (a housing developer) to be convenient stops for people passing and bound for New York City.

Borough Center: A classy suburban neighborhood located at the center of Metuchen.

Menlo Park Terrace: An urban neighborhood with a charming feel to it, boasting properties built in the "Baby Boom" era back in the year 1945-1964.

Living in Metuchen

Metuchen is differentiated from its more modern suburban neighbor towns through its age. The city has many restored historic homes that retained its historic character and bring the city a timeless charm. The borough was strategically set up in a way that residents will be encouraged to walk or jog down its tree-lined streets, frequently drop by the parks (Middlesex Greenway, Dismal Swamp, Thomas Pond Park, Centennial Park) and its eight playgrounds, nine ball fields (including Little League field), tennis courts, a municipal swimming pool for sports and recreational activities and to shop in the quaint Main Street stores in the city.

It is in these Main Street stores that the residents often get to know their local merchants and receive personalized service that they don't usually get from large chain stores in the nearby shopping malls. The Metuchen municipal pool complex attracts both residents and non-residents with its new and expanded snack bar, covered eating area, instructional swim classes and offers different social activities for different age groups. Another place for gatherings and to be or stay fit in Metuchen is the Metuchen-Edison YMCA, which provides comprehensive health and fitness programs for all age groups, including several exercise classes, state-of-the-art exercise equipment and aquatic programs. It professes to be the leader in the development of services for the elderly and physically challenged, and to be the largest provider of child care in the Middlesex County.

Metuchen offers many activities that involve its residents and attracts the residents of the neighboring communities as well. Residents of Metuchen never fail to gather most especially at their annual events like parades on Memorial Day and for the holiday season, the spring Arts and Crafts Festival, the fall Country Fair, and of course, the annual town-wide garage sale, which brings throngs of people each year. There are other seasonal attractions as well, like the First Night celebration on New Year's Eve and Halloween activities such as the Haunted Trail.

By the start of the 20th century, commuting had become a way of life for Metuchen residents. Middlesex County is a major transportation corridor of the state, and for this very reason, has experienced continuous increase in population and economic activity as years go by that's why rental housing is in demand in this area. Public transportation such as the trains, taxi cabs and NJ Transit local bus service are available to go around, in and out of the borough. Metuchen residents and travelers won't have a hard time commuting to New York City, Newark, Trenton or to nearby Rutgers University, in New Brunswick, by train or by bus. Metuchen is within two miles of several of the states' major transportation arteries (the NJ Turnpike, the Garden State Parkway, Interstate Route 287, U.S. Highway 1 and state Highway 27), which makes this small town a commuters haven, desirable and very convenient to many people, most especially to employers in the region. It is said that Metuchen is almost in the center of everything because of the accessibility in transportation.
