#107 Most Diverse Suburbs in New Jersey 

Manville is a borough in Somerset County located in the heart of the Raritan Valley region and is a part of the New York metropolitan area. Manville was named after the Johns-Manville Corporation, which maintained a large manufacturing facility in the borough for decades.

Historically, many of Manville’s residents are of Slavic β€” mostly eastern Polish and western Ukrainian descent β€” with many businesses and restaurants geared towards the Polish-American community located along Main Street (County Route 533). Manville was formed by an act of the New Jersey Legislature on April 1, 1929, subject to the results of a referendum held on April 18, 1929. The borough borders Bridgewater Township, Franklin Township and Hillsborough Township. Much of Manville is in a low-lying flood plain and is surrounded by rivers and streams on all but the western side which borders neighboring Hillsborough Township by land. The Raritan River forms the northern boundary of the borough and is met by the Millstone River which forms the eastern boundary of the borough, where a weir exists at the confluence of the rivers which is used for water intake purposes by New Jersey American Water. 

As of the 2010 United States Census, the borough’s population was 10,344, reflecting an increase of one person (+0.0%) from the 10,343 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn declined by 224 (-2.1%) from the 10,567 counted in the 1990 Census.
