Overview of Carteret

Carteret, New Jersey, truly owns up to its nickname as "The Center of it All." Located in Middlesex County on Staten Island Sound, it’s just over 20 miles from New York City, about 13 miles from Newark, N.J., and 70 miles from Philadelphia, Pa., making it a great central location when it comes to choosing a neighborhood in which to rent. The weather here includes four distinct seasons, and the crime rate is lower than the U.S. national average, making it worth looking into by apartment renters from all walks of life.

Living in Carteret

This borough was originally called Roosevelt, and it was later renamed after Sir George Carteret in November of 1922. Prior to its incorporation, much of the area was developed for use as farmland for both crops and livestock.

As of the 2010 census, Carteret has about 24,000 residents, and a redevelopment and revitalization initiative has spurred urban renewal and community mindedness. The unemployment rate is lower than the state average, and more than 30 percent of those over the age of 25 hold a bachelor’s degree or higher.

Young professionals who rent here will enjoy the bustling nightlife of the neighborhood and the comfort of lunch in a local cafe. Apartment renters who settle in one of the Carteret neighborhoods with their children will have lots of fun things to do year-round. The Waterfront Park offers a well-maintained play area for the little ones, and there are free concerts for the whole family all summer long. It’s only a short drive to the Staten Island Children’s Museum or the Sussex, N.J., Space Farms Zoo & Museum.

Most residents who rent an apartment in the area get from place to place by driving, but there are other options for those who prefer not to get behind the wheel, especially during rush hour. Taxis and other transportation services can be utilized while the New Jersey Transit provides bus service to and from Manhattan and Elizabeth. There are also three Amtrak stations within 12 miles of the city’s center.
