The Downtown Bordentown Association is a coalition of local businesses working together to support each other and strengthen the region's economy.
Bordentown City began as a trade route, benefiting from its riverfront and railways, while serving local farmers and merchants. Although its business offering has evolved, it remains just as strong.
Today, businesses are attracted to Bordentown City because of its well-established Downtown District, its merchant associations, its realistic but progressive master plan, and the growing demographics of the region.
Many Bordentown City residents are entrepreneurs, restaurateurs, and professional service providers who work locally. Some work for leading companies including Bristol Myers Squibb and Johnson & Johnson, which both have offices outside of the City. Nearby colleges including Princeton University, Rider University, and Thomas Edison State College also provide career opportunities for City residents.
Others take advantage of plentiful public transit options. Bordentown City is served by NJ Transit RiverLINE light rail, which traces the Delaware River connecting Trenton and Camden with 20 stops in between. Connections to Philadelphia are available either through SEPTA in Trenton or via PATCO in Camden. Major highways also make it easy for residents to commute to careers throughout the region.
