New Jersey, named after the Isle of Jersey, is nicknamed the Garden State. New Jersey joined the Union on December 18, 1787 as the 3rd state.

The explorer Giovanni da Verrazano was the first European recorded to have seen the coast of New Jersey in 1524. In 1609 Henry Hudson sailed along the New Jersey shore and claims the region for the Netherlands.

Located in the Middle Atlantic of the Northeast region, New Jersey is bordered on the west by Pennsylvania, the southwest by Delaware, the east by the Atlantic Ocean, and by New York on the north and northeast.



...

Seen in outline, this fifth smallest state is a bent old codger in a pillbox hat, turning his weary back on a sea that denies him a deepwater port in all that span of sand. The big ships dock at such ports as Elizabeth at the nape of his neck and Camden at the knot of his tie – one in the shadow of the great port of New York, the other across the Delaware River from the busy docks of Philadelphia. Like lightning zapping from nimbus to nimbus, rails and highways skitter up and down the old man's collar, linking the urban hubs and completing the circuit of the East's vast megalpolis. Yet New Jersey adds to the circuit no city quite so great as these – hence its image as a corridor state and its schizophrenic lean toward New York in the north, Philadelphia in the south.
