Local Information

New Brunswick is located in central New Jersey and is a vibrant city of 50,000 residents, a number that triples during the business day with college students, corporate and business employees, hospital and health care workers and visitors. It is a community with richly diverse neighborhoods, a bustling downtown, and an innovative and popular cultural arts center.

Downtown New Brunswick is home to Johnson & Johnson's world headquarters, Rutgers-The State University of New Jersey, two premiere academic hospitals, three professional theaters, several four-star restaurants, and two four-star hotels. Today, New Brunswick has become well known for its theaters and fine restaurants. The Downtown New Brunswick website has extensive information on local attractions, restaurants, theaters and more.
