The city of Bayonne, New Jersey is in Hudson County, situated on a peninsula between Newark Bay, to the west, Kill van Kull, to the south, and New York Bay, to the east. The community was initially incorporated as a township in 1861, becoming a city in 1869. Bayonne shared a border with Jersey City, and is connected to Staten Island by the Bayonne Bridge. The first inhabitants of the area were, of course, Native Americans, but the land was claimed by the Netherlands after Henry Hudson explored the Hudson River.
