Welcome to Watchung
The Borough of Watchung is located in Somerset County. The community surrounds Watchung Lake, a picturesque lake with walking trails located just off of the Watchung Circle. With only a 29-mile drive to New York City, this Borough is ideal for anyone needing easy access to Manhattan and the 5 Boroughs of NYC. At just a little over 6 square miles and a population of slightly over 6000, this small community has a more rural feel. Watchung’s winding country lanes are home to some of the most beautiful estates in New Jersey.
