Elizabeth, New Jersey: Midtown

Midtown is Elizabeth's business district. Elizabeth was first English settlement in New Jersey, and the second permanent settlement in New Jersey. The city was also the first capital of New Jersey, until 1665, when New Jersey was slpit into East Jersey and West Jersey. The Midtown area saw several battles and skirmishes during the Revolutionary War, including the Continental recapture of the settlement from the British on January 6, 1777 as part of the New Jersey Campaign.

It seems alot smaller in pictures, then in person. Just a bit background information Elizabeth has a population of around 120k. Its has three main business centers, Broad Street(mid town), Elizabeth ("the market", mostly Hispanic and Brazilian/Portuguese businesses), and Elmora Street which is around where I live.
