Very nice town. I've been living in Rahway for years. It's tight community the town is up and coming although neighboring towns tend to give us negative reviews, most of the information is false. The town is relatively very safe with decent hard working people. There are always community activities for the family. The downtown area is developing beautifully with rentals and nice shops. Property value is on the rise and the schools are decent. The high school has an impressive performing arts programs and football team. During the summer there are concerts and festivals as well as in the winter. The rec center offers all kinds of lessons from a tennis program to yarn and art classes at a fair price to residents from the town. The Rahway of today is not the same town it was 20 years ago so the neighboring more affluent towns tend to give it a bad rap. Overall you get your bang for your buck in this town if you move fast and acquire property now as prices are surging fast.
Rahway is family friendly and offers a lot of things to do. I love that I can take a walk along the Rahway River if I just want to get away and enjoy nature. Rahway has lovely restaurants to go to for a dinner date and a great shopping area. The neighborhoods are safe and the community is always welcoming!
A great area! It can be really diverse, and most of the people around are friendly. There are nice places to go to and visit nearby as well.
