Get the door, it's the liquor store
Taking up a scenic spot a couple of miles west of Staten Island is the city of Edison, New Jersey. Named after the iconic inventor (you’ll have to put aside your Tesla vs. Edison loyalties for the moment), this city of 100,000 housed his famous laboratory in Menlo Park. The... “Wizard of Menlo Park” cranked out invention after invention from this location, changing everyone’s lives with gadgets from the phonograph to the electric lightbulb. Christie Street, which runs northwest by the park, was the world’s first street to feature electric illumination. Edison has a lot more than cool history going for it. It’s an ethnically diverse, high-standard-of-living town that blends quiet suburban neighborhoods with bustling pedestrian commerce areas. Parks abound throughout the town, and the enclaved town of Metuchen even resides in the middle of the city for a change of pace. Little India, one of the largest concentrations of South Asian businesses and residents in the country, is located in Edison and neighboring Woodbridge Township. If you’re looking for a lovely place to pass your days, look no further. And if you’re looking for a place where the finest beers, wines and liquors in the world show up at your door within an hour of ordering them, you’re also in luck.
