Bayonne:- Top Sights of Bayonne, NJ

Must read

Bayonne was initially formed as a Township from parts of Bergen Township. Bayonne was established as a city in 1869 by the New Jersey Legislature.

The area that is now Bayonne was originally inhabited by Native Americans. However, the Netherlands claimed the region after Henry Hudson discovered the Hudson River. 26 Royden Page Whitcomb’s 1904 work, First History of Bayonne in New Jersey states that the name Bayonne may have been derived from Bayonne, France. This theory is considered to be apocryphal because there is no evidence to support it. Whitcomb also supports the notion that Erastus Randall (E.C.) was responsible for creating Bayonne. Whitcomb gives more credence to the idea that Erastus Randall, E.C., was the owner of the land Jasper and William Cadmus bought for real estate speculation.

Stephen R. Gregg Park

Stephen R. Gregg Park

Charles N. Lowrie designed Stephen R. Gregg Park. It was established in 1916. The park was originally named Bayonne Park. In its early years, the park had a line of fountains near the entrance at West 40th Street. Visitors used the park’s shoreline for crab fishing and to lower traps into Newark Bay. Stephen R. Gregg (a Bayonne resident for over 50 years) was the first to be honoured with the park’s new name. He was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor during World War II for his bravery in defending a French German outpost and allowing the rescue of seven American soldiers who were severely wounded. He was also a member for 51 years of the Hudson County Sheriff’s Department and retired as chief judge.
