Northern New Jersey

Area Profile Home > New Jersey > Northern New Jersey > Intro

Few areas of our nation can boast the rich history and cosmopolitan flavor of Northern New Jersey. This area has evolved over several centuries into a colorful tapestry of cultural and economic diversity. Densely populated and pulsating with activity, this region encompasses lush parks and woodlands, tranquil residential havens, exclusive enclaves, and bustling industrial centers.


When Northern New Jersey is viewed in its east/west orientation, the western section or Skylands Region is dotted with panoramic mountains, forests, lakes, and streams — an idyllic terrain for skiing, fishing, canoeing, camping, hiking, or hot air ballooning. The eastern portion of this area or the Gateway Region is known for the Statue of Liberty, Thomas Edison’s laboratories, ethnic restaurants, theaters, museums, gardens, discount outlet centers, and the famous professional sports center known as the Meadowlands.


Although the kaleidoscope of activities and attractions in New Jersey could fill any calendar, the full spectrum of world-class advantages associated with “The Big Apple” are easily accessible — from cultural and recreational to business and professional. The spectacular Manhattan skyline is clearly visible from many of the area’s well-developed communities.
