Jersey City, NJ
The city is New Jersey’s second largest city, after Newark. Located near Manhattan, Jersey City is often referred to as New York City’s “sixth borough.” Transportation to and from Manhattan is easy from Jersey City. In addition, its waters surround Liberty Island, home of the Statue of Liberty. Ferries depart regularly from Jersey City for visitors who want to visit the nation’s famous statue.
Jersey City is one of the nation’s most racially, ethnically, and language-diverse cities. From its early days of welcoming Italian and Irish immigrants from nearby Ellis Island to today’s expanding communities from South America, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, Jersey City is a true melting pot.
The waterfront and the financial district of Jersey City have seen a great deal of revitalization since the 1980s, with major companies such as Goldman Sachs, Chase Manhattan Bank, Citibank, Merrill Lynch, and Charles Schwab bringing their businesses to the area. The area has become known as “Wall Street West.” The skyline in Jersey City is on the rise too. The Goldman Sachs building is 238 meters tall (42 stories). Built in 2004, it is the tallest building in New Jersey and is considered one of the 200 tallest buildings in the world.
Jersey City’s landmarks include the Colgate Clock, one of the largest clocks in the world. It faces lower Manhattan and is visible from Battery Park. Installed in 1924, the clock is 50 feet in diameter and 2,200 pounds. The Landmark Loews Jersey Theater, located in Journal Square, is another popular attraction. Built-in 1929 as a “movie palace,” it features a 50-foot-wide stage, an orchestra pit with an elevator, ten dressing rooms, and the Wonder Morton Pipe Organ. Back in its heyday, the theater housed VitaPhone projectors, allowing it to play the early “talking pictures.”
