Highland Park Real Estate
Highland Park is a residential community, approximately 2 square miles in size, and centrally located in Middlesex County between New Brunswick and Edison townships, nestled along the Raritan River. Settled in about 1667 by a small group of dissident Baptists, it was originally a meeting point for several Indian trails which extended in many directions.
Route 27 runs through the middle of Highland Park and Routes 18, 1 and 287 run nearby.
In a modern world populated by superstores, Highland Park maintains a small-town, homey feel with a number of mom-and-pop shops. People chose to live there because it’s a safe, walking community. This quiet borough, situated along the Raritan River, has a busy downtown area, full of small shops and a large selection of restaurants, ranging from Turkish to Thai to Israeli. In 1978, the National Main Street Center was established by the National Trust for Historic Preservation with the goal of revitalizing downtown while maintaining the historic integrity of the area and its buildings.
