All About New Jersey

New Jersey, AKA the Garden State, is one of America's smallest states, but one of its most densely populated ones. More than nine-tenths of New Jersey's people live in cities and towns, one of the highest percentages of any state. On average, New Jersey has more people per square mile than  any other state. It is both a leading industrial state and one of the top producers of truck crops. Even though this states farms are small, they rank among the most valuable per acre. New Jersey’s mostly urban population results relatively from its strong emphasis on manufacturing. That developed largely because of New Jersey's location between New York City and Philadelphia, which became two of the country’s biggest commercial and population centers. To serve these giant markets, New Jersey has excellent railroads, highways, and waterways and also has major ports for handling ocean traffic, especially in the Newark and Elizabeth area opposite from the city. Despite its reputation as an industrial state, New Jersey gets its nickname from its farmland. It is called the Garden State because in the 18th century, it became famous for the fertility of its land. New Jersey  has lots of beautiful, full of nature areas in the rural sections away from New York City. New Jersey has a continental climate, which means that the summers are hot and the winters are cold. The average annual temperature in New Jersey ranges from about 55 °F (13 °C) in the south to 49 °F (9 °C) in the northwest.
