Edison Township is a township in Middlesex County in New Jersey. U.S. News & World Report and Money Magazine have ranked Edison among the best places to live. Going back in history, Edison, previously known as Raritan Township, was settled in the 17th century. During the second half of the 19th century, the township grew with the opening of the Pennsylvania Railroad. In 1876, the Pennsylvania Railroad brought Thomas Edison to the township; he set up his research laboratory in Menlo Park. Known as the “Wizard of Menlo Park,” Thomas Edison invented the phonograph and the incandescent light bulb during his stay in the township. To honor Thomas Edison, the township’s name was changed to Edison in 1954. Today Edison has a population of 99,967 and the racial makeup of the township is 44.10% White, 43.19% Asian, 8.11% Hispanic, and 7.05% African American (2010 Census). With an overall crime rate that is much lower than the New Jersey average and the national average, Edison is considered a very safe place to reside in. Before the early 2000s, numerous industrial companies had major production facilities in and around Edison. Now various companies are headquartered in Edison while other companies have warehouse operations in Edison. In addition, New Jersey’s largest private convention center is located in Edison. The main point of interest in Edison is the Thomas Edison Center at Menlo Park. This historical site contains the Edison Memorial Tower, the Thomas Edison Museum, and the Edison State Park. Other points of interest in Edison include the Menlo Park Mall, the Roosevelt Park, and the New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center.

Woodbridge Township is a township in Middlesex County and is the oldest original township in New Jersey. Going back in history, the township was settled in 1664; the township was named after one of the settlers, Reverend John W. Woodbridge.

Once the township was chartered, Jonathan Singletary Dunham moved to the township with his wife; it was he who built the first gristmill in New Jersey. In 1751, the first permanent printing house in New Jersey was established in the township.

Today Woodbridge has a population of 99,585 and the racial makeup of the city is 59.18% White, 22.42% Asian, 15.63% Hispanic, and 9.85% African American (2010 Census). While not as safe as Edison, Woodbridge is a fairly safe place to reside in.
