Welcome to Trenton

Trenton dates back to June 3, 1719, when mention was made of a constable being appointed for Trenton, while the area was still part of Hunterdon County. In the year 2000 Trenton was designated as an anchor city for the New York Metropolitan Area. The rapid growth of suburban New York into Northern and Central New Jersey has brought Trenton under New York City's sphere of influence. During the Constitutional Convention in 1787, James Madison referred to the war-raged Trenton (and New Jersey at large) as "a dismembered torso bleeding into Philadelphia and New York" thus sealing its fate as an important port city in the eastern United States. Trenton and its immediate suburbs are often lumped together and referred to as "Greater Trenton" by locals.
