New Jersey

New Jersey is a northeastern U.S. state with some 130 miles of Atlantic coast. Jersey City, across the Hudson River from Lower Manhattan, is the site of Liberty State Park, where ferries embark for nearby Ellis Island, with its historic Immigration Museum, and the iconic Statue of Liberty. The Jersey Shore includes notable resort towns like historic Asbury Park and Cape May, with its preserved Victorian buildings.

AUTOMOTIVE HISTORY

John A. Roebling Sons Company is widely known for its wire rope manufacturing and its suspension bridge design (hello, Brooklyn Bridge). But in 1909, the Roebling Sons partnered up the Kuser brothers to purchase what became the Mercer Automobile Company (named for Mercer County). The Mercer Automobile Company manufactured the Type-35R Raceabout – one of the top sports cars of the early automobiles. Some say it was America’s first sports car.
