New Jersey Accounting Executive Search City Snapshot:


Welcome to New Jersey, the “Garden State.” New Jersey was one of America’s original 13 colonies the 3rd US state to enter the Union. The state lies in the Middle Atlantic and Northeastern regions, east of Pennsylvania, south of New York, north of Delaware, and along the Atlantic coast. New Jersey’s capital city, Trenton, is 33 miles from Philadelphia, PN and 66 miles from New York, NY. The state’s motto is “liberty and prosperity;” the state animal is the horse; the state flower is the common violet; the state bird is the American Goldfinch; the state fruit is the Highbush Blueberry; and the state bug is the Honeybee. Many famous entertainers and political figures were born in New Jersey, including: Buzz Aldrin, Jason Alexander, Samuel Alito, Jon Bon Jovi, Grover Cleveland, Lou Costello, Danny DeVito, Michael Douglass, Steve Forbes, James Gandolfini, Ed Harris, Whitney Houston, Derek Jeter, Artie Lange, Queen Latifah, Jerry Lewis, Ray Liotta, Andrew McCarthy, Troy “Murphdog” Murphy, Joe Pesci, Antonin Scalia, Frank Sinatra, Kevin Spacey, Bruce Springsteen, Martha Stewart, Meryl Streep, John Travolta, Frankie Valli, and Lee Van Cleef.

Before Europeans arrived in present day New Jersey, the region was home to the Lenni-Lenape Native Americans. The Dutch were the first Europeans to settle in the area. Michiel Pauw, director of the Dutch West India Company, founded the first European settlement along the North River. In 1664 the English, led by Colonel Richard Nicolls, took control of the Dutch Fort Amsterdam in present day New York Harbor and annexed the entire province. They named the land the Province of New Jersey after Sir George Carteret’s English Channel Island Jersey.

The Province of New Jersey was an ethnically and religiously diverse colony. Many Europeans came here to escape religious persecution in the 1600s. New England Congregationalists, Scottish Presbyterians, Dutch Reformed Church members, English Quakers, and Anglicans all lived together in the colony. Today, New Jersey is still known for its ethnic and religious diversity.

New Jersey was the site of many significant Revolutionary War battles. Some of those battles include: the Battle of Monmouth, the Battle of Princeton, and the Battle of Red Bank. But the most famous was the Battle of Trenton. On December 25, 1777, George Washington led an army of Revolutionists across the Delaware River in a surprise attack against the Hessian army in Trenton. The American army killed 22 Hessians and captured 896. Washington’s victory at the Battle of Trenton shifted the momentum of the Revolutionary War and inspired more soldiers to enlist in the Revolutionary army. The moment before the battle was dramatized and immortalized in Emanuel Leutze’s painting Washington Crossing the Delaware.

In 1804, New Jersey became the last northern state to abolish slavery. It was one of the few northern states to select a President other than Abraham Lincoln in 1860 and 1864. New Jersey was not the site of any Civil War battles, but over 80,000 people from the state enlisted in the Union army.

A few decades later, New Jersey became a key state in the Industrial Revolution. A period of crop failures and poor soil forced New Jersey’s economy to shift from agriculture to industrialization. The state’s economy became heavily based on its textile and silk manufacturing. Thomas Edison invented hundreds of industrial gadgets and gizmos from his research facilities in Menlo Park, NJ and West Orange, NJ.

During the first half of the 20th century, New Jersey was a center for war production. The state was essential for naval construction during World War I and II. Battleships, cruisers, and destroyers were all manufactured in New Jersey. In 1962 the world’s first nuclear-powered cargo ship, the NS Savannah, as launched at Camden. The state is still a major shipbuilding center today. The state’s airship record is not so strong however. In 1937 New Jersey’s Lakehurst Naval Air Station became the site of the infamous Hindenburg disaster.

In 1951, the New Jersey Turnpike opened. It allowed fast travel between metropolitan New York in North Jersey and metropolitan Philadelphia in South Jersey. Today, New Jersey is one of the wealthiest states in America, by median household income. However, New Jersey is still the butt of many jokes. Despite its dangerous areas and its unfavorable perception in the public eye, New Jersey is still a great place to live.
