150 Years of Hudson County History

As part of its 150th anniversary, The Jersey Journal issued a special supplement that contained articles and photographs highlighting the past century and a half of this county. Included are the most influential people, major landmarks, and the 25 most significant stories. More than a few of the pieces were co-authored by Patrick Shalhoub, our periodicals and government documents librarian and Carmela Karnoutsos, a retired NJCU history professor. These two are also responsible for the award-winning Jersey City Past and Present site; additional tomes on various New Jersey counties are here and here.

Update on Hudson County Construction Projects

Jersey City is not the only municipality in Hudson County witnessing a building boom. Every other town appears to be in the midst of rising towers of condos or rentals. This article from the Hudson Reporter provides a detailed and informative review of what is happening. It is the best summation of county-wide construction activities I have seen; it is very readable considering the amount of information offered. Another article from this same paper provides an overview of all the advances the county has made in attracting businesses.
