The original settlers of the land that North Bergen sits on today was home to Lenape Native Americans of the Hackensack Tribe. It is one of the hilliest municipalities in the country and today, has a large percentage of residents with Hispanic ancestry. Early developments were found near Hackensack River, especially at what is today known as Bergen Square and it was sparsely populated, providing locals with lots of land to develop gardens and farms including French botanist, Andre Michaux. The construction of Lincoln Tunnel Approach and Susquehanna Transfer made the township much more accessible from other surrounding cities which were burgeoning with new residents and this created a slow but steady rise in the number of population because of a spillover effect. It was in the late 2000s that North Bergen, together with Union City, Guttenberg and Weehawken and West New York began to be collectively known as ‘NoHu’ - North Hudson communities. The city is a haven for local performing and fine artists mainly because homes and cost of living was relatively lower than rapidly growing cities like Manhattan, Jersey City and Hoboken.
