Welcome to Carteret

A dynamic borough positioned in the heart of central New Jersey and just a short ride from Manhattan, Carteret has become a case study in good-government programs and redevelopment initiatives that have spurred municipal renewal. From our completely revitalized parks system to $600 million in private investment over the past 10 years alone, from the stabilized tax rate and sense of community to the state-of-the-art RWJ Fitness and Wellness Center, our borough has never experienced such levels of positive growth.

Whether you’re a resident, visitor, or business owner, Carteret has something to offer everyone. Exciting festivals, an array of shopping opportunities within the UEZ program, and a beautiful Waterfront Park have become the new normal in town.

So now's your chance. Stop on by and start discovering what a ‘Better Carteret’ really means.
