About Madison

Madison, New Jersey  is a borough in Morris County. It is known as "The Rose City" and was named in honor of President James Madison.  The once thriving rose industry and the large estates in the area attracted working-class people of all kinds. As a result, Madison developed a diverse population very early, both in terms of socioeconomic status and ethnic background. 

Madison offers the perfect combination of small-town feel with the cosmopolitan draw that only a community near NYC would have.
