EXPLORE NEW BRUNSWICK CITY CENTER—
THE HEART OF CENTRAL NEW JERSEY
Known for its award-winning arts and cultural district, New Brunswick is a community with richly diverse
neighborhoods, a bustling downtown City Center, sporting events, historical sites of local and national significance
and an exciting place to live, work and visit.
Nestled along the Raritan River, New Brunswick City Center is lively, trendy and close to everything Middlesex County
has to offer. Whatever you seek, you can find it here, and probably within walking distance: first-class nightlife,
acclaimed restaurants, Big Ten sports, an inspiring riverfront and a dynamic arts and culture scene like none other.
Within a few blocks of the heart of New Brunswick City Center converge Rutgers, The State University, Johnson &
Johnson’s world headquarters, the county’s largest medical school and two premier academic hospitals, as well as
two luxurious four-star hotels ready to welcome you to a perfect getaway any time of year, both offering conference
and meeting rooms with full reception and catering services.
More than 545,000 visitors converge on New Brunswick’s cultural scene every year. The new state-of-the-art
performing arts center offers innovative performances by the American Repertory Ballet. Come witness stars-in-themaking
from Rutgers’ Mason Gross School of the Arts, and take in riveting shows at George Street Playhouse and
Crossroads Theatre Company. New Brunswick’s iconic State Theatre offers spellbinding concerts, film, dance and
family shows year-round. Even more pour into venues throughout the City Center to view vibrant artistic culture at
the Zimmerli Art Museum, the Hungarian Museum, Alfa Art Gallery, and the Mason Gross Art Gallery, or to laugh with
top-rated comics at the Stress Factory.
