Establishing a company in New Jersey
New Jersey is a small U.S. state located in the Northeast along the Atlantic coast. New Jersey borders on New York to its north and east, Pennsylvania to its west, and tiny Delaware to its southeast. It has 9 million residents, and is the fourth smallest state in terms of area, although densely population. Despite being an independent state, New Jersey is actually situated between the huge metropolitans of nearby New York and Philadelphia. During the early days of Western settlement in the 17th century, the Dutch and Swedes established small towns in the region, and later the British took control of the land and named it for the Isle of Jersey, located between England and France.
The majority of the population resides in the north part of the state near Manhattan, and many citizens commute daily to New York but return to home New Jersey where the price of living is much lower. The number of people drops more southward you travel, and the landscape becomes more natural and wooded. The climate in this small state is different in each county, but generally summers are hot and humid, and winters particularly cold with temperatures dropping below zero. The capital is Trenton, and the largest city is Newark. In addition to English, which is obviously the official language, New Jersey also has a number of ethnic minorities that each speak their own language, including Hispanics, Italians, Poles, Koreans and Indians.
