Located on a peninsula south of Jersey City and connected to Staten Island by the Bayonne Bridge, Bayonne is the smallest in population of all cities within the Resilient Northeastern NJ Region. Much of the city’s existing residential fabric is on higher ground and less exposed to flooding, though lower-lying areas frequently flood during rainstorms. Most of Bayonne’s waterfront is heavily industrialized and includes major port assets and bulk storage facilities, although some of those areas have been redeveloped into residential, commercial, and mixed-use development.
Below are the latest demographic statistics for Bayonne.
