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. It is the county seat of Union Countymarker .

In 2008, Elizabeth was named one of "America's 50 Greenest Cities" by Popular Science magazine, the only city in New Jersey selected.


Elizabeth was founded in 1664 by English settlers and was named for the wife of Sir George Carteret, not Queen Elizabeth I as many people assume. Originally called "Elizabethtown," and part of the Elizabethtown Tract, it was the first English speaking community formed in the new colony. It was also the first capital of New Jersey. During the American Revolutionary War, Elizabeth was constantly attacked by British forces based in Manhattanmarker and Staten Islandmarker.

On March 13, 1855, the City of Elizabeth was created by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature, combining and replacing both Elizabeth Borough (which dated back to 1740) and Elizabeth Township (which had been formed in 1693), based on the results of a referendum held on March 27, 1855. On March 19, 1857, the city became part of the newly-created Union County. Portions of the city were taken to form Linden Townshipmarker on March 4, 1861.

The first major industry, the Singer Sewing Machine Company came to Elizabeth and employed as many as 2,000 people. In 1895, it saw one of the first car companies, when Electric Carriage and Wagon Company was founded to manufacture the Electrobat, joined soon by another electric car builder, Riker. The Electric Boat Company got its start building submarines for the United States Navy in Elizabeth, New Jersey beginning with the launch of USS Holland in 1897. These pioneering naval craft [known as A-Class] were developed at Lewis Nixon's Crescent Shipyard in Elizabeth between the years 1896-1903. Elizabeth grew in parallel to its sister city of Newarkmarker for many years, but has been more successful in retaining a middle class presence and was spared riots in the 1960s.


Elizabeth is located at (40.662152, -74.209066).

Elizabeth is bordered to the southwest by Lindenmarker, to the west by Rosellemarker and Roselle Parkmarker, to the northwest by Unionmarker and Hillsidemarker, to the north by Newarkmarker (in Essex Countymarker) and to the east by Bayonnemarker (in Hudson Countymarker) & Staten Islandmarker, New Yorkmarker.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 35.4 km2 (13.7 mi2). 31.6 km2 (12.2 mi2) of it is land and 3.7 km2 (1.4 mi2) of it (10.47%) is water.

Business and Industry

Since World War II, Elizabeth has seen its transportation facilities grow; Port Newark-Elizabeth Marine Terminalmarker is one of the busiest ports in the world, as is Newark Liberty International Airportmarker, parts of which are actually in Elizabeth. Elizabeth also features the popular Jersey Gardensmarker outlet mall, Loews Theater and the Elizabeth Centermarker, which generate millions of dollars in revenue.

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

Portions of the city are covered by the 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.

Celadon, a mixed-use development containing 14 glass skyscrapers, offices, retail, a hotel, boardwalk and many other amenities is proposed to border the east side of the Jersey Gardensmarker mall, directly on the Port Newark Bay.. It is planned to break ground in the summer of 2008 on the ferry, roads and parking, and will continue construction for at least twelve more years.
