New Jersey Approved the Constitution
December 18, 1787

New Jersey has more diners than any other state and is the shopping mall capital of the world, with seven malls in a 25-mile radius. The "Garden State" still manages to produce two-thirds of the world's eggplants.

New Jersey is a state of many firsts too: the first ever baseball game was played in Hoboken; inventor Thomas Edison had his first lab here; and John P. Holland took his invention, the submarine, for its first ride down the Passaic River in New Jersey. Visit the "Garden State" and see for yourself what's growing in New Jersey.
