The small, idyllic town of Madison packs a lot of character and history in 4 square miles. Its Main Street, decorated and lit up at night, is lined with renowned restaurants, diners, ice cream parlors, and boutique shops. This bustling, pedestrian-friendly downtown gives Madison a more lively nightlife than its neighboring suburban community. Weekends welcome a wide array of parades, sports, cultural events, and theater.

Two colleges, Fairleigh Dickinson University and Drew University, are located just outside of downtown. As a result, the arts have a very strong presence in Madison. For example, the Drew campus hosts the Shakespeare Theater of New Jersey, the Garden State’s only professional theater company dedicated to producing Shakespeare’s plays.

Established in 1896, the private Madison Golf Club is one of the first golf clubs in the United States.

Within a short walk from downtown, the NJ Transit’s Morris & Essex Line provides commuter access into New York City. It is one of New Jersey’s first commuter railroads, and was fundamental in facilitating the settlement of wealthy businessman and their families in the 19th century.

The commute from Madison to New York Penn Station takes approximately one hour. Many commuters also take the Morris & Essex Line to the Path in Hoboken in order to more directly access the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

A quick drive around Madison may seem like a journey back in town. The predominance of colonial homes, national historic landmarks, museums, and old churches give this small town a unique aesthetic. That being said, Madison is as well known for its top-notch school systems as it is its beautiful architecture and historic sites. Madison Public Schools consistently ranks in the top 50 school systems in New Jersey.

Approximately 16,000 people reside in Madison. The estimated median household income is $125,520; the estimated median house or condo value is $704,476.
