Harbortown is a planned community neighborhood in Perth Amboy in Middlesex County, New Jersey, United States. It is situated south of the Outerbridge Crossing along the Arthur Kill, between the city's traditional waterfront and the Kinder Morgan terminal[1][2] The 135-acre[3] area was the Lehigh Valley Railroad's (LVRR) Easton and Amboy Railroad's marshaling yards where coal was loaded onto barges until the LVRR's bankruptcy in 1976.[4]
