People are moving to Jersey City. In a New York Times article “Moving in New Jersey City? Join the Club!” in February 2016, the writer quoted the city mayor’s office who issued that “developers are rushing to build, with some 7,000 units of housing under construction and another 19,000 approved—more than any city in the state.” This is an impressive turnaround for a city that, just years ago, was known for crime and violence.
The Lenape (later called the Delaware Indians) inhabited the area that is now known as Jersey City. By the 17th century, the Dutch explored the territory, and Michael Reyniersz Pauw, a Dutch explorer, bought the land area from the Lenape. As part of his obligation to the Dutch West India Company, as landowner, Pauw was supposed to populate it with Dutch settlers. He failed to do so. Other Dutchmen took over the responsibility of looking after the area as a Dutch colony. They built houses on farmlands. One of them was called Pavonia, named after Pauw’s family.
The Dutch settlers soon found themselves in conflict with the Lenape. They disagreed about land ownership and trade relations. This brought a dark episode in Jersey’s history called the Pavonia massacre where several Native Americans were killed. The Lenape people fought back, forcing the Dutch to leave Pavonia.
In 1658, Peter Stuyvesant, the then Dutch colony director, bought back the area from the Lenape. This was a way of establishing peace with them. By 1675, the Dutch turned it over to the British after years of negotiation. On February 22, 1838 Jersey City became a local governing body.
