Rumson is a borough community located in the county of Monmouth, New Jersey. It is also a part of the greater New York Metropolitan Area and is located only a short distance to the south of the major metropolitan hubs of both Manhattan and Staten Island. That's right, you'll be close to the Big Apple if you live here -- just a little over an hour away. At the time of the last major census, the total population was at about 7,100 people and it is continuing to grow. Rumson experienced a notable population boom between the years 2000 and 2010, increasing in size by more than 400 citizens. The borough is bordered by two major rivers -- the Shrewsbury River to the south and the Navesink River to the north. Rumson is also less than a mile from the shimmering Atlantic Ocean. The borough is only about 40 miles northeast of the city of Philadelphia, PA, as well, making it incredibly centrally located. But location, location, location is only one of this charming town's attributes.
