Moving to Bayonne, NJ––Hudson County

First things first, if you’re moving to Bayonne, you’ll want to know how the city’s name is pronounced – it’s bay-OWN.  Now that you’ve got that handled, you’ll be happy to know that Bayonne is a great place to live!  The city lies on a peninsula that’s right at the heart of the Port of New York and New Jersey and just east of Newark – New Jersey’s largest city. Though it’s a small city, with a population of only about 63,000, plenty of opportunity lies close by, just across the Bayonne Bridge in fact.  Bayonne’s most eye-catching site connects the city with Staten Island, and it happens to be the fourth longest steel arch bridge in the world. Approximately 20,000 vehicles pass over this bridge any given day (for tolls and E-Z Pass information visit http://www.panynj.gov/bridges-tunnels/bayonne-bridge.html).
