Stretching over 12 square miles, the industrial center of Linden City has one-quarter of its boundary on Staten Island Sound and nearly as much on the Rahway River. Commercial growth is on the rise and revitalization is occurring in several areas. Hundreds of retail outlets are scattered throughout the city. Housing options here are diverse, from single-family dwellings to duplexes, apartments, condominiums, and senior residential villages. Linden Airport provides a vital communication link in the Union County infrastructure, and residents enjoy easy access to an entire network of major highways. Recreational amenities include neighborhood and regional parks, playgrounds, athletic fields, tennis courts, swimming pools, and summer camps.
