About Paterson

Paterson, New Jersey, known as the "Silk City," has a rich history in the textile industry. In the 19th century, Paterson became a major center for silk production, thanks to its proximity to the Great Falls of the Passaic River, which provided water power for the mills. The city quickly grew into one of the largest silk manufacturing centers in the United States, attracting immigrants from around the world who came to work in the mills. Today, Paterson's industrial heritage is still visible in the form of the historic mill buildings that dot the cityscape.

In addition to its textile industry, Paterson has also played a significant role in freight transportation. The city is strategically located near major transportation routes, including highways, railways, and airports. Paterson is intersected by Interstate 80 and is in close proximity to the Garden State Parkway and the New Jersey Turnpike, making it easily accessible for freight transportation. The city is also served by multiple railway lines, including the Norfolk Southern Railway and the New York, Susquehanna and Western Railway, providing connections to other major cities in the region. Furthermore, Paterson is just a short distance away from Newark Liberty International Airport, one of the busiest airports in the United States, offering convenient air cargo services.
