"Before the major commercial and business district was titled Journal Square (in 1923 after the Jersey Journal), it was laden with farmhouses and manors from the original Bergen settlers of the 1660s. Nearly 100 years later, Journal Square has transformed into what it is today—a flourishing multiethnic neighborhood with a resonant history."
