New Jersey

According to itypetravel, New Jersey is a state in the northeastern United States. Named after the island of Jersey in the English Channel. The third state to join the Union State. Population – 8.717 million people (3rd place in the USA, 2005 data). The capital is Trenton, the largest city is Newark. The official nickname is the Garden State.


The area of ​​the state is 22,608 km 2 (47th, that is, the fifth from the end, place in the USA). The state is divided into three main regions – North Jersey, Central Jersey and South Jersey.


In ancient times, the territory of the state was inhabited by the Lenape Indians. Dutch settlers began to settle here in the 1630s. Most of what is now New Jersey was then, along with part of the future state of New York, part of the colony of New Netherland, with its capital in New Amsterdam. The region came under British rule in 1664 when a flotilla under the command of Colonel Richard Nicholls entered New York Harbor and captured the Dutch colony.

In 1776, the territory of New Jersey became one of 13 British colonies that rebelled against the mother country. During the “War of Independence” the state several times passed from one belligerent to another, so that later it received the name “Crossroads of the Revolution”.

On December 18, 1787, New Jersey became the third state to join the United States. On November 20, 1789, he was the first state to ratify the Bill of Rights.

In the last decades of the 20th century, it actually became part of the huge New York agglomeration. The state has a major gambling center – Atlantic City, the only US city, except for Las Vegas, where casinos are allowed to be built on land. Despite the developed infrastructure and high standard of living, there is an intensive outflow of the population, especially whites, to the south of the country, especially to the state of Florida. At the same time, a significant number of migrants continue to arrive in the state, especially from the Latin American region, among them, for example, was Celia Cruz, the famous salsa performer.
