New Jersey’s state motto, “liberty and prosperity,” describes this second-wealthiest of the 50 US states well.

New Jersey’s largest cities are Newark, Jersey City and Patterson. State capitol Trenton’s motto, “Trenton makes, the world takes,” sums up New Jersey’s welcoming attitude toward commerce.
