The Holland Tunnel, under the Hudson River, was completed in 1927, providing a means of easy transportation between New Jersey and New York City. Before, ferries were required to travel across the Hudson River. Later on, the George Washington Bridge (1931) and the Lincoln Tunnel (1937) were completed, making access to Manhattan even easier.

The total population, for example, was once listed in a 1998 high school selection guide as "less than 600 students", though now has 1,157 students. The nominees are announced each April.
