Sewaren Is A Section Of Woodbridge Township, New Jersey. Sewaren Ranges About 2 - 3 Square Miles In Radias. Sewaren Is One Of The Smalest Parts Of Woodbridge Township. The Population Of The Town Of Sewaren Is About 2,000 - 3, 000 People.
. Sewaren Is Mostly A Working-Class Community Made Up Of Some Of The Nicest And Closest Neighborhoods In The Woodbridge Township Area. Although Sewaren Is Just About The Smallest Parts Of Woodbridge, It Is One Of The Most Popular Sections Of Woodbridge.
There Are 2 Major Roads In Sewaren. Woodbridge Avenue Begins In Woodbridge Proper And Continues Over The New Jersey Turnpike Overpass. Woodbridge Avenue Runs West Where It Ends At Cliff Road.

While The Arthur Kill Is Used By Recreational Boaters, It Is Just As Much, If Not More Used By Commercial Ships Because Of The Deep Channels. With The Large Amount Of Industry In The Area And Access To Other, Larger Waterways, The Arthur Kill Is Very Important.
