About New Jersey

New Jersey is a state in the North East of the United States. It is bordered on the north and east by New York, on the southeast and south by the Atlantic Ocean, on the west by Pennsylvania, and on the southwest by Delaware. It is the most densely populated of the 50 United States and can be broadly divided into three geographic regions: North Jersey, Central Jersey, and South Jersey, though some New Jersey residents do not consider Central Jersey a region in its own right.

Some New Jersey creations include: the drive-in movie, the cultivated blueberry, cranberry sauce, the postcard, the boardwalk, the zipper, the phonograph, the seedless watermelon and the ice cream cone, and there are more diners in the state of New Jersey than any other place in the world!

Since the state’s inception, New Jersey has been characterized by ethnic and religious diversity. Newark is New Jersey’s largest and second-most racially diverse city after neighbouring Jersey City. The 1967 Newark riots were a major civil disturbance that occurred in the city of Newark in response local African-American residents to feel powerless and disenfranchised. The six days of rioting, looting, and destruction left 26 dead and hundreds injured and resulted in a significant population loss of the city’s middle class, many of them Jewish.

Newark Symphony Hall, originally built by the Shriners, has three performance spaces, including the main concert named in honour of famous Newarker Sarah Vaughan, offering rhythm and blues, rap, hip-hop, and gospel music concerts.
