New Jersey City Is Biggest ‘Melting Pot’ of All, Mayor Says

Hudson County is New Jersey’s most-diverse. At its heart, and within sight of Ellis Island, lies Jersey City, the state’s most polyglot large municipality, according to U.S. Census Bureau figures.

There’s a 77 percent probability that any two Hudson County residents, chosen at random, will be different in terms of race or ethnicity, according to Census data analyzed by Bloomberg. In Jersey City, that ratio rises to 82 percent.
