Linden is located in the state of New Jersey and a city in the southeastern part of Union County. It also forms part of the New York Metropolitan area, and is located in the southwestern part of Manhattan and is a border in Staten Island, a borough that is located in New York City, across Arthur Kill. The area was originally developed and was formed as a township from portions of Rahway, Elizabeth, and Union Township. The portions of the township were then taken to form the present-day Cranford, Linden Borough, and Roselle. It was then in 1925 through an act of the New Jersey Legislature which replaced both Linden Township and Linden Borough, which were based on the referendum that was held in the city. The name of the city was derived from the linden trees that were brought to the city from Germany. Linden ranks in the upper quartile for Diversity Index, and the city is home to transients from all over the globe with a varied mix of ethnic groups including African Americans, Hispanics, Italians, and others. Living in Linden gives locals easy access to some of the best attractions, restaurants, and nightlife in neighboring New York, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania and a quiet, calm neighborhood away from the city frenzy. There’s no shortage of attractions within the city too, and both residents and tourists go to Linden to experience the Thomas A. Edison Memorial Tower & Museum, Wheeler Park, Roselle Park Museum, Goethals Park, Clifford Lawson Memorial Park, and the Crane Phillips Living Museum. Peaceful and safe, yet near all the metropolitan amenities you could want, Linden is an ideal choice for a new home.
