1524年,义大利人韦拉札诺(Giovanni da Verrazano)是第一位探索现今新泽西的欧洲人。新泽西为最初的13州之一(1787年添加联邦),以位于英吉利海峡(English Channel)内的新泽西岛命名。因其境内拥有丰腴的农田,故又名「花园之州」(Garden State)乔治华盛顿将军在特棱顿(Trenton)一役,是独立战争期间的一场关键性的胜利。当时,他从宾州出发,穿越德拉瓦河(Delaware River),对驻扎在该处的黑森(Hessian)士兵发动袭击新泽西的首府是特棱顿,而它的州花是紫萝兰;吸引世界各地的人们前来的渡假胜地大西洋城(Atlantic City)是美国小姐选美赛的发起地。


Italian Giovanni da Verrazano, in 1524, was the first European to explore the area we know today as New Jersey. One of the original 13 states (it joined the Union in 1787), it was named after the island of Jersey in the English Channel. New Jersey is referred to as the "Garden State" because of its fertile farmland. General George Washington won a key Revolutionary War battle at Trenton when he crossed the Delaware River from Pennsylvania and surprised the Hessian soldiers stationed there. Trenton is the state capital, and the flower is the purple violet. Atlantic City, a resort town and home to the Miss America pageant, attracts visitors from around the world.
