First established in 1666, Piscataway, New Jersey is one of the oldest settlements in the U.S. Located 40 miles southwest of Midtown Manhattan, Piscataway is a township of nearly 61,000 people. As the home of Rutgers University’s Busch and Livingston main campuses, SHI Stadium and a significant portion of Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, the township has advanced academic and research facilities. Commercial businesses include a vibrant life sciences sector, information technology and data centers, transportation logistics, and a wide variety of other commercial and industrial companies. In 2019, Money magazine ranked Piscataway in its Top 100 Best Places to Live in America—the fourth time Piscataway was featured on the list. About 20 years ago, town leaders envisioned a new community center that would bring people together from all walks of life. The goal was not only to provide an outlet for recreation, but also a focal point for community support and safety. That goal was realized last year with the opening of the YMCA Piscataway Community Center (YPCC). The 83,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility features an aquatic center with three pools, a fitness center and group exercise studios. There is also a training/coaching office, a gymnasium with 202 bleacher seats, child watch room, dance and art studios, café and a teen center.
