Nestled alongside the Raritan River in north-central New Jersey, Edison is a tranquil suburb with a rich history. The township was the site of Thomas Edison’s famous invention factory, where the incandescent light bulb was perfected and sound was first recorded. Aside from the obvious name of the township, Edison honors the renowned inventor with Thomas A. Edison Park and Edison State Park, which contains the Thomas Edison Center at Menlo Park.

In addition to a storied past, Edison offers residents top-notch schools, vibrant shopping centers, and lush parks in a central locale. Residents also enjoy easy access to New York City and Philadelphia, which are both within an hour’s drive of the township. Convenience to major highways like I-95 and I-287 as well as Newark Liberty International Airport makes commuting and traveling from Edison a breeze.

Living in Edison

  • Shopping

    Edison boasts some amazing places to indulge a shopping spree, so much so that it's not uncommon to see shoppers from across New Jersey flocking to the area. The Menlo Park Mall is perhaps the most well known, with two levels of popular stores, numerous restaurants and even a movie theater tucked into over a million square feet. The nearby Woodbridge Center Mall in Woodbridge, NJ also offers two floors of "retail therapy" to peruse - these two centers along with numerous strip malls scattered around the area give shoppers plenty of options.

  • History

    The town of Edison derives its name from Thomas Alva Edison, a historical inventor credited with a number of inventions including the telephone and the electric lightbulb. The Thomas Edison Center at Menlo Park showcases the advances made by Edison, complete with original laboratory antiques and interpretive displays. In nearby New Brunswick, museum highlights include the Rutgers College-supported Zimmerli Art Museum and Rutgers Geology Museum for the science-minded.

  • Transportation

    New Jersey has an excellent and well-connected transportation network in the form of New Jersey Transit, and a business-centric town like Edison is very firmly woven into its convenient schedules. Travelers that prefer not to drive have their pick of the Edison Train Station, a system of local NJT buses, taxi services and even a Rutgers transportation system for students attending the college as options for jetting around town. If a longer trip is in order, the Long Island Railroad, or LIRR, and the New York subway and light rail systems help travelers easily ferry themselves back and forth from NJ to NY and back. Modern technology is clearly embraced in the New Jersey Transit System, with phone apps, realtime tracking and ticket sales through automated kiosks and an online site to facilitate casual and business travel alike.
