About New Brunswick

New Brunswick is the seat of Middlesex County, 27 miles southwest of Manhattan. It’s nestled along the southern bank of the Raritan River, and home to a high concentration of medical research facilities (including Robert Wood Johnson University, Saint Peter’s University Hospital, and Rutgers University’s own medical school), earning it the nickname “the Healthcare City.” Arts and culture thrive in New Brunswick as well. Three professional theaters serve the area with large and small scale productions year round, and art history buffs known the city as the birthplace of the mid-20th century Avant Guard movement in the United States. Still a trendsetter, New Brunswick’s “grease truck” district on College Avenue pioneered the Food Truck movement that’s still gaining momentum around the country. The Grease Trucks are famous for serving a variety of local and international fare, mirroring the ethnic diversity which in many ways defines the city. Nature lovers can enjoy nearby attractions such as Hopewell State Park, Fundy National Park, and Irving Nature Park. Residents can walk in the footsteps of some of America’s most beloved leaders at Roosevelt Campobello International Park, and delve into some of the northeast’s most treasured caves at the Bay of Fundy.

As the home of Rutgers University, New Brunswick is still very much a college town. Students should have no trouble finding housing.

The college district is in the tip of the rather hat-shaped town. Students will have great luck finding housing along Easton Avenue in the Buccleuch Park area to the north of campus, as well as around Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital to the south. Most housing in these areas is dominated by students, and much of it has seen rejuvenation in the past few years.

Downtown has seen the most renewal and is now the highlight of the city. It’s been growing steadily since the 1970s and is now the nicest section of town, home to Johnson and Johnson’s, all three theaters, and most of the city’s best shopping and dining. 

Just east of downtown, Highland Park offers a slightly more suburban experience with proximity to all downtown’s amenities.

Similarly, the Route-1 area near Loews movie theater is suburban in a great kind of way. Affordable housing abounds and the streets are known for being clean and safe.
