What Bert Has To Say About Trenton Metro Area


Trenton, the capital of New Jersey, contains a fairly typical mix of government activities with a strong complement of commercial and industrial activities typically found in Mid-sized Eastern cities. Unlike most New Jersey cities, it is more tied economically to the Delaware Valley and Philadelphia than it is to the New York area, but like many places in the state, the area is characterized by contrasts. Numerous well-preserved historic districts date back to the Revolutionary War. Impoverished areas are also present and there’s a strong working-class element.
