Union City, New Jersey

History

Located centrally in Hudson County, New Jersey with New York City just minutes away, Union City is the perfect place to work, live and do business. Union City’s history dates back to June 1, 1925 when the Township of West Hoboken and the Town of Union (familiar by the name of Union Hill) were joined together to establish the city of Union City. It was later on 13th January, 1959 when the city was incorporated as a general law city with its government being managed by a city council/city manager. This city plays home to about 70,000 residents belonging to an ethnically diverse community that consists of people of White, Asian, Filipino, Chinese, Asian Indian and Hispanic/Latino origin. With excellent educational institutions and a strong economy, along with several sports fields, parks and community facilities, this city promises to offer its residents a great quality of life.
