Welcome to Edison, New Jersey, one of America’s Best Places to Live according to Money Magazine (2016). Located in Middlesex County, Edison is considered to be in the New York City metropolitan area. This 32-square-mile township is home to more than 100,000 residents and is a major hub of rail and highway networks. The most well-known resident, Thomas Alva Edison, invented the incandescent light bulb, as well as the first recording of sound, in his Menlo Park Laboratory. Points of interest include Roosevelt Park, which has every recreational activity, from basketball and tennis courts to an ice skating rink to daily plays put on by the local theater in the summers. Edison is also within a stone’s throw of the resources of Rutgers University and Middlesex Community College. Major employers like John F. Kennedy Medical Center, Johnson & Johnson, and Rutgers University are within the city limits or nearby. Edison is a true mecca of history, culture and more.
