A Great Place to Live and Work

Covering a geographic area of 2.45 square miles, the Town of Boonton is located in the northeastern Morris County, about 22 miles west of the George Washington Bridge and seven miles north of Morristown on Rte. 287. It's an established community with an abundance of park lands, historic homes and convenient access to all parts of the tri-state metropolitan area.

Public transportation to New York City is available via express and local commuter rail (NJ Transit), and by bus service (Lakeland Bus). 

Boonton residents are primarily professionals, craftsmen and independent business people. We have three mid-sized shopping centers, various art galleries and specialty shops that are located in and around the Main Street Business District.  Boonton Main Street, Inc. runs their annual Farmer’s Market from June – November of each year in the Upper Plane Street Parking lot, located directly off Main Street.  Other events throughout the year includes Boonton Day in September, the annual Boonton Fire Department’s Labor Day Parade & Fair and the their Annual Christmas Parade in November.  The town's business community includes numerous major corporations, such as Fossil Farms (game & natural meats), Unigene (pharmaceuticals), Dauphin (commercial furniture manufacturers), Marsen (industrial manufacturers), and Packard (specialization in antique automotive equipment).

Residential housing available in the town includes single and multi-family homes, apartments, condos, townhouses and restored homes representing the Colonial, Victorian and Contemporary Eras.
