Il New Jersey is an American state located in the North East of the USA. It borders the State of New York to the north and east, the Atlantic Ocean to the south and southeast, Pennsylvania to the west and Delaware to the southwest.

This state is the smallest in the United States but the 50th most populous and most densely populated of the XNUMX states.

The capital is Trenton while the largest city is Newark, where the Newark Liberty International Airport is also located, one of the busiest airports in the United States.

Historical notes

The area was inhabited by Native Americans for over 2800 years, by ancient tribes such as the Lenape along the coast. At the beginning of the XNUMXth century, the Dutch and the Swedes established the first European settlements. Later the British took control of the area and named it the Province of New Jersey.

New Jersey was the land of various decisive battles during the War of the American Revolution.

In the XNUMXth century, companies in the cities of Trenton, Newark, Paterson and Elisabeth contributed to the development of the industrial revolution. New Jersey's strategic location, in the center of megacities, between Boston and New York City to the northeast and Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington DC to the southwest, fueled its rapid growth through the suburbanization process in the XNUMXs and beyond.

To see

Well connected to New York City, New Jersey is easily accessible via the New Jersey Transit trains and buses.

If you travel in the summer or spring, the ideal is to spend a day on one of the beaches along the coast, for example Sandy hook, to relax among sand dunes and the sweet sound of the waves, but turning your gaze to the ever-present Manhattan skyline.


New Jersey is the homeland of some inventions modern, like the FM radio, the lithium battery, the postcard, the airship, the ice cream cone, the drive-in, the blueberry sauce.
