City Guide

Watchung
The Legend of Watchung, New Jersey, rivals more famous accounts of the events around Jamestown between Captain John Smith and Pocahontas. Like that story, an intervening princess saved the day in what would become Watchung.
The Legend of Watchung, New Jersey, rivals more famous accounts of the events around Jamestown between Captain John Smith and Pocahontas. Like that story, an intervening princess saved the day in what would become Watchung.

The name comes from a tribe of Lenni-Lenape Native Americans who inhabited the area and allowed Dutch settlers to live in the valley after the events in the legend. It's a narrow valley with Plainfield, New Jersey, on its right and Interstate 75 on its left. Watchung Lake lies virtually in the middle of the borough and sets the tone for the rest of the community. Almost 6,000 people live here, but it's part of a much larger metropolitan area that effectively extends all the way to greater New York City. Something you will notice right away is the lower population density here. The lots are generally larger than in neighboring towns and cities.

Moving to Watchung

The nice setting the valley is in makes it a desirable locale, and that translates to more competition for places to live in Watchung. If planning to move here, the better your preparation, the better your results will be. Start with a list of your best choices, and work through it until you find the optimal fit for your budget and living needs. Be prepared to provide information for a thorough credit check and to be asked for first and last months' rent. Once you find an apartment, don't hesitate to sign the lease.
