Union City Travel Guide

Located on the Hudson River, Union City is a large city in New Jersey. Union City has a long history and it is a very multi cultural place, as after the World Wars many German and Spanish immigrants settled here. Union City has plenty of nicknames which all reflect the cultural diversity of the city, such as the Embroidery Capital and Havana on the Hudson. Each year, thousands of people trek to Union City to see the longest running Passion Play of the United States. The city is also a home to the annual Cuban Day Parade which is wildly celebrated in New Jersey. Since Union City is very close to New York City and Jersey City, the town was settled by the same group of people who have explored New York in 1609 and named it New Netherland. These historical elements are truly visible in the culture and in the architecture of the city, so those who are interested in art, culture, and landmarks should not hesitate to visit Union City.
