About Elizabeth

Elizabeth is a city in Union County, New Jersey, in the United States. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 120,568, making it New Jersey's fourth largest city (by population). The population of Elizabeth was 126,179, as of the Census Bureau's 2006 estimate.[1] It is the county seat of Union CountyGR6.

Business and industry

Since World War II, Elizabeth has seen its transportation facilities grow; Port Newark-Elizabeth Marine Terminal is one of the busiest ports in the world (owing to its proximity to New York City, without actually being part of it), as is Newark Liberty International Airport, parts of which are actually in Elizabeth. Elizabeth also features the Jersey Gardens outlet mall and IKEA, which generate millions of dollars in revenue.

Together with Linden, Elizabeth is home to the Bayway Refinery, a ConocoPhillips refining facility that helps supply petroleum-based products to the New York/New Jersey area, producing approximately 230,000 barrels per day.

Portions of the city are covered by an Urban Enterprise Zone, which cuts the sales tax rate to 3½% (half of the 7% charged statewide) and offers other incentives to businesses within the district. The Elizabeth UEZ has the highest business participation rate in the state, with approximately 1,000 businesses participating in — and benefiting from — the program. The UEZ has helped bring in more than $1.5 billion in new economic development to the City and has brought in over $50 million in sales tax revenue that has been reinvested in funding for additional police, streetscape and other infrastructure improvements.[4]

Midtown Elizabeth with Union County College building.

Midtown, also occasionally known as Uptown, is the main commercial district. Midtown is a historic section as well. It includes the First Presbyterian Church and St. John's Episcopal Church, and its St. John's Episcopal Churchyard. The First Presbyterian Church was a battleground for the American Revolution. Located here are also the Art Deco Hersh Tower and the Ritz Theatre which has been operating since 1926. Elizabeth Avenue/Union Square is a vibrant and mainly Hispanic immigrant neighborhood and is just east of Midtown. Even though it is still a domain of many Cuban-owned businesses, there are many other Hispanic groups as well, including Central and South Americans. There are also some Italian-owned shops, many of which have been in business for decades. The neighborhood's commerce is mainly centered on Elizabeth Avenue which is sometimes nicknamed "The Market." Spanish is the dominant language. Unfortunately, the area is also viewed by some as a dangerous area, due to the amount of panhandlers and thieves who target the area, and contains some drug-ridden sections.

North Elizabeth, also known as "North End," is mainly a diverse working-class neighborhood. Morris Avenue is home to many Colombian stores and restaurants and is sometimes given the nickname "Little Colombia." Many Colombians refer to Morris Avenue as La Morris.

Westminster, is one of the more affluent and historic area of Elizabeth, located between North Avenue and Elizabeth's border with Hillside, home of Senator Raymond J. Lesniak (D) and the largest estates in the city .

Elizabethport Although this has been an impoverished part of Elizabeth for many decades, this area has had a great deal of improvement in the last five years. Many homes have been refurbished or replaced with new, more ornate constructions. There is an area where housing projects stood for years along First Street that were demolished and replaced with attractive apartment complexes for those with low to moderate incomes. The Elizabeth Marina, which in the past was filled with trash and debris along its walkway, has also improved and many celebrations are held year round, from a Hispanic festival in the late spring to the lighting of a Christmas tree in the winter. Living conditions in this area continue to improve year after year. The population is mainly Black, Puerto Rican, Dominican, Cuban and Portuguese. Historically, there was a Lithuanian community here, and a Lithuanian Roman Catholic Church still stands in the neighborhood. However, "The Port" was largely Irish from the late 1800s until WWII and the largest church in Elizabeth is St. Patrick's Church in Elizabethport, built by the Irish in the late 1800s and still in beautiful condition today.

Despite these improvements, the waterfront remains a dangerous area after dark, as does much of midtown.

Elmora Hills
Elmora Hills

Elmora is a middle/working-class neighborhood in the western part of Elizabeth. Home to many Colombians and Jews, a number of kosher eateries, Colombian restaurants and the locally well-known Goodman's delicatessen can be found on Elmora Avenue, the main thoroughfare.

Goethals Bridge
Goethals Bridge

Elmora Hills is the northwestern part of Elizabeth just north of Elmora. It is a strongly middle- to upper-middle class neighborhood and is about 65% White. The area still maintains a large Jewish population.

Peterstown (also known as The Burg) is a middle/working-class neighborhood in the southeast part of the city. It is heavily industrial and ethnically diverse. Peterstown was once predominantly occupied by newly immigrated Italians and their descendants, but is less so today. The western terminus of the Goethals Bridge, which spans the Arthur Kill to Staten Island can be found here.
