About Weehawken, NJ Real Estate Market

A part of the New York Metropolitan area, Weehawken is located in the northern part of Hudson County in New Jersey state. It is situated on the Hudson Palisades, alongside the western shore of the Hudson River, and has a population of more than 17,000. The township of Weehawken is spread over 1.48 square miles in area and is surrounded by Hoboken, West New York and Union City.

The inspiration behind the name of the township of Weehawken evolved from the Algonquian language Lenape, which is interpreted as ‘Maize Land’ and ‘Rocks that look like trees’, with the latter indicating the Hudson Palisades.

Weehawken got established as a township in 1859 by an act of the New Jersey Legislature, including the portions of North Bergen and Hoboken. However, the actual development in the township began at the beginning of the 20th century, when many residential areas and New Jersey houses replaced the older hotels, estates and theatres. The arrival of European inhabitants further resulted in the development of real estate in this part of Hudson County. In the 20th century, Weehawken became a hub for embroidery factories while remaining a residential township to a large extent.
