Millions of people carelessly regard JERSEY CITY (60 alt., 316,715 pop.) as a necessary rail and motor approach to Manhattan, but Jersey City advertises that it has "Everything for Industry." The daily commuters and motorists never see enough of the community to realize the accuracy of Jersey City's self-description. The propitious location of the city, close to the tremendous financial and consumer markets of New York City and metropolitan New Jersey, is an advantage equaled by its geographical position on upper New York Bay. This favorable situation has furnished Jersey City with shipping facilities which, in turn, have drawn motor routes and rail lines.
