in the 1800's the town used to be named Union Town. The town's train station was named the Iselin Train Station after a NY investor (who never lived here). I think his name was Arthur or Alfred Iselin. After a while, everybody just started calling the toen Iselin because that's what the train stop was called. At some point the name was changed officially. In the early 1970's the Iselin Train Station (where green street becomes oak tree read) burnt down, and they built Metropark where it stands now. I've ben waiting a few decades for us to change the name of the town to Metropark, but it looks like Iselin is sticking. I also think Metropark may have at first been named for a politician, but when there was a scandel involving him, they changed the name to Metropark.
