Union City, New Jersey
Street Name Changes


The Hudson County Genealogical Society offers this database courtesy of member Kathie Pontus, who provided a list of changes to street names in Union City, NJ. In 1926 the Hudson County, New Jersey towns of West Hoboken and Union Hill passed a vote to merge. Together they became, Union City, NJ. On January 2, 1926 most of the street names were changed to reflect the new City boundaries. Most streets that ran East & West Streets in West Hoboken & Union Hill were given numbers. Some streets that ran North & South, also were renamed. There were other name changes after 1926. These are also included on the lists below.
