    If you are in and around Edison and you are looking for above average Chinese food, do yourself a huge favor and come to Jade Dynasty. I have been getting takeout there for more than 11 years now and they are constantly super yummy. I must admit I am rather hooked on the Steamed Dumplings in hot sesame oil. OMG you never had anything like this, and the rest of the dishes do not disappoint. The General Tao's Chicken is not overwhelmingly spicy and is also another favorite. When dining in, the staff are very, very nice and extremely attentive; you would think you are dining at a five star snooty restaurant without the high price tag. Don’t hesitate to drop in for some of their legendary Egg Drop Soup when the weather gets nippy; it is warms your soul kind of good soup. Now with a high tech order online website, Jade Dynasty is a keeper on speed dial for sure.

    Edison is a community that loves to be active outside. There's so many local parks and options for hiking, biking, and playing outside. You'll find something close by for every outdoor activity.

    If you're into basketball, Bernard L. Dwyer Park, Edison Woods Park, and Gateway Park all have basketball courts. Full-size football fields can be found in Papaianni Lake Park, Schenkmeyer Park, and the new Shamrock Park on Shamrock Way. (Papaianni Lake and Bernard L. Dwyer also have full soccer fields). Tennis is popular in this area, and there's no shortage of dedicated facilities with plenty of courts. There are two in the Portland Street Tennis Courts, four at the North Eight Tennis Courts, and eight at the Oak Tree Tennis Courts.

    If you're out with the family and just looking for a playground, you've got tons of options. This is just a partial list of Edison parks with playgrounds: Beatrice Parkway, Blossom/Ellmyer Parks, Dudash Park, North Edison Park, and the Stelton Community Center (the site of many of Edison's events). Or if you're up for a nice picnic, the Papaianni Lake Park, Minnie B. Veal/Elder Park, and Yelencsics Park on Woodbridge Avenue all have picnic areas with tables and a grill.

    Most of Edison's parks have some sort of trail or walkway for those interested in a simple stroll. Getting out and enjoying nature is one of life's great pleasures. Edison's many parks and recreational venues are a great place to do it!

    Edison is a growing, 100,000+ community. There are tons of recreational activities available for the whole family. The Edison Recreation Department has a host of events slated for 2015.

    This past June 29 through August 7, the Edison Summer Playground Program gave children ages 5 to 12 a chance to visit one of Edison's many parks and participate in arts & crafts, games, dance, drama, and science activities. It's a combination of fun and learning that serves as a chance to keep young minds sharp over the summer weeks. There's a 4th of July celebration hosted by the mayor, with fireworks lighting up Papaianni Lake Park. Also, Edison loves to get into the holiday spirit, with annual Halloween and Christmas Dances for the disabled, a Halloween Festival/Fair, and a Thanksgiving Day Parade.

    In addition to these, the Recreation Department hosts planned trips in the summertime to nearby attractions. This year, there were trips to the Philadelphia Zoo on 7/8/15, out to the new Yankee Stadium on 7/17/15 and 8/21/15, and Dorney Park (a theme park in Allentown, PA) on 7/29/15, as well as many others. All of these are just a small sample of what Edison has to offer!

    Have you ever been stumped by the question of what makes your town of Edison, New Jersey so special? Perhaps you've also been approached with a question concerning the history of this magnificent town. Today, I will give you some insight as to the origins of Edison and just a few key points to keep in mind when holding a conversation about your hometown.

    Edison was first settled by Europeans in the 17th century; although many findings such as arrowheads of Native Americans and skull fragments from the Stone Age clearly point to other prehistoric settlements. In 1689 the first school opened up in what is today the Oak Tree Section. In the year of 1789, George Washington traveled on Old Post Road to his inauguration in New York City. In March of 1870, the area became part of Raritan Township (formed from Woodbridge and Piscataway townships). In the year of 1964, John P. Stevens High School opened up. Fast forward to the modern times, Jun H. Choi became the youngest mayor in Edison history when he was elected to office in 2005. The current mayor of Edison is Thomas Lankey.

    One unique aspect about Edison is that it is home to Thomas Alva Edison's famous Menlo Park Laboratory which was established in 1876. Thomas Edison is an innovator and inventor, famous for developing the first practical light bulb, the phonograph and the motion picture camera. Edison, also known as the "Wizard of Menlo Park," said that he preferred the Edison location because it was one of the highest points between Philadelphia and New York. In 1937, the Edison Memorial Tower was put up in the city to honor Thomas Edison's service.

    Today, the 32-square mile township of Edison of Middlesex County has more than 100,000 residents. To complement the large and diverse body of residents, the town has many points of interest as well as places to see. There are extensive park systems including the breath-taking Roosevelt Park as well as Papaianni Park. Furthermore, there are two golf courses as well as two train stations. There are also about fifteen neighborhood shopping centers. All in all, the town of Edison has reached great heights ever since its first establishment.

    Two key attributes that distinguish Edison and Metuchen properties are the school and transportation systems.

    Hollywood Night Cruisers Car Club is a fun time for all car buffs to show off their cars! Whether you own a car that can be displayed or just enjoy unique cars, the Hollywood Night Cruisers Car Club is a great event for you. Edison has always been a car persons town. Englishtown Raceway is near by and many auto plant workers lived and worked in Edison when the Ford Plant was open (now closed). The car show is a great way to enjoy a summer night in a fun environment!
