The Central Jersey area is an excellent choice if you’re looking to move into a new house. All of the region's counties are ranked among the highest income counties in the United States, as measured by median household income, and it is called the state's "wealth belt,” thanks, in part, to the manufacturing hub and facilities of leaders like Edison Assembly, Ford Motor Company (production of the Rangers, Mustangs, Pintos, Mercurys, Lincolns and more), General Motors, Frigidaire, Siemens and ExxonMobil Chemical. Now home to telecommunications leaders like Bell Labs, Verizon, AT&T Communications, Vonage and others.
