About Upper NJ
North Jersey comprises the northern portions of the U.S. state of New Jersey between the upper Delaware River and the Atlantic Ocean. The designation of northern New Jersey with a distinct toponym is a colloquial one rather than an administrative one, reflecting not only geographical but also perceived cultural differences from the southern part of the state, with no official definition. The region is characterized by a high level of economic output, emanating from economic engines including Paramus in Bergen County, which has become the top retail ZIP code (07652) in the United States, with the municipality generating over US$6 billion in annual retail sales; Jersey City, whose financial district has been nicknamed Wall Street West; Newark Liberty International Airport; and the Newark-Elizabeth Seaport. Bergen County is New Jersey’s most populous county and serves as the western terminus for the George Washington Bridge, the world’s busiest motor vehicle bridge, connecting Fort Lee, New Jersey to Upper Manhattan in New York City.
Geologically, the north is in the Piedmont Province, the Highlands Province, and the Ridge and Valley Province. Depending on definitions, some is counted as being in the Atlantic coastal plain.
This region has a Humid Continental Climate (Dfb) by Köppen.
The seven counties that are included in North Jersey have a total population of 3,492,590 as of the 2000 U.S. Census. The demographics of all of the counties are 66.8% White, 18.5% Hispanic or Latino, 15.4% African American, 6.6% Asian, 0.2% Native American, and 0.1% Pacific Islander.
