An inside look at
MIDDLESEX COUNTY TOWNS
Safe. Quiet. Small-town feel. Excellent schools. Friendly. Peaceful neighborhoods. These
are all terms Middlesex County residents use to describe their hometowns.
Known as the “Heart of New Jersey,” Middlesex County has 25 individual municipalities
within its 318 square miles, ranging from quiet rural towns to vibrant city centers, diverse
enough to make all people feel comfortable and ideal places to live and work.
According to NJ Advance Media, four Middlesex municipalities rank in the top 15 on New
Jersey’s Diversity Index, which measures how well balanced racial and ethnic groups are
in an area: North Brunswick, Carteret, Piscataway and Woodbridge.
