As the county seat and one of New Jersey’s largest cities, Paterson boasts a long and illustrious business history. New enterprises continue to be attracted to Paterson with its prime location and quality work force. In conjunction with the rebirth of the Historic District and Greta Falls area, former mills have been converted into attractive offices, services, stores, and even residences. Enhancing the widespread economic revitalization, expansion of Route 19 ensures direct access to downtown Paterson from all major highways surrounding the city. Accessible transportation includes the Garden State Parkway, the New Jersey Turnpike, Route 19, and bus or train service to New York City. YMCA facilities, a recreation center, numerous local parks, playgrounds, athletic fields, tennis courts, and a swimming pool are just a few of the recreation amenities.
