The Smallest City In America Is Right Here In New Jersey

When you think of a city, places like New York and Los Angeles probably come to mind. Of course, there are smaller cities. New Jersey has Newark, Camden, Jersey City, Trenton and dozens more. While many are some of our largest municipalities, the “city” designation is actually dependent on form of government, not population. The exact definition varies by state but New Jersey has 5 types of local government – village, borough, town, township and city. Our smallest city is among the smallest in America.

While there are smaller municipalities in New Jersey, they are not classified as cities. Still, they are equally as charming as this shore area gem. Check out some of most wonderful little cities, towns and boroughs here.
