F or many Americans, and even many New Jerseyians and sur-

many advantages to living and working in one of the finest areas in our nation. There are two factors that make Central Jersey a great place to live and do business – the still remaining and thriving agricultural com- munity, near such towns as Plainsboro, and the major transportation and com- merce systems, which start- ed with the Camden and Amboy Railroad, as early as 1830, with subsequent powerful and expanding transportation systems, ty- ing Central Jersey to major

areas of commerce along the Eastern Seaboard, a process that continues to this day. Although there are doubters about traveling on the New Jersey Turnpikes and tie- ups, the recent expansion to six lanes in each direction, down to the connection to the Pennsylvania Turnpike, helps expand business, hold down costs from traffic de- lays, and make an attractive overall business climate. The very powerful draw of goods and services into North Jersey and the New York Metropolitan area, in-

cluding the nationwide suc- cess of firms who can provide “hot” in demand electronics and other goods and services, on a 24 hour “on demand” basis, has expanded logistic opportunities, throughout Northern and Central New Jersey. Central New Jersey real estate is on the upswing, and it is not unusual for goods and services arriving in the Greater New York area, to be delivered to warehouses late in the day, and, sent out to fulfill internet orders, the next morning.

This market is expected to expand, which means that opportunities for businesses which rely on logistics and/ or transportation in Central New Jersey, continue to grow. Well for generations, it was viewed that New Jersey cities were on a downward slide, but you only need to look at the great attractive- ness of redevelopment in New Brunswick, which has changed its face and at- tractiveness. Residents are going into town for evening meals, something that would have been unheard of a few years ago. The underlining transpor- tation through towns such as New Brunswick, are major, and its train station can connect a passenger with high speed railroading to anywhere on the Northeast corridor, and even the down- town area, well into the eve- ning hours. The Town of New Brunswick has an attractive public transportation sys- tem, with transportation available on main arteries, every few minutes. The best way to describe Central New Jersey today is: •Filled with real estate opportunities. •More attractive down- towns, becoming as good as any others in our country. •Transportation infra- structure which is equal to or better than the best in our country. Although Central and Northern New Jersey suf- fered from many pharma- ceutical and commercial office closures after the 2008 economic downturn, current indications are that the im- proving economic conditions will keep real estate on the rise, for a number of years to come. The United States is showing its economic might, as compared to Europe and other locations in the world, and consumer confidence is expected to play in, to keep real estate on the rise as well. In the Northern part of our state, we have seen more new environmental projects come in during the last six to eight months, than any time in our cor- porate history, which dates back to 1988.
