    First settled in 1683, Perth Amboy has undergone tremendous changes since named New Jersey’s colonial capital over three hundred years ago. Today, this diverse 4.8 square mile city is home to almost 50,000 residents and oversees 11 public schools, including an Adult Education Center, and a growing public library, offering resources for native and non-native English speakers alike.

    Dubbed “The City by the Bay” for its waterfront location, Perth Amboy is located across the Arthur Kill from Staten Island and boasts a redbrick promenade, historic yacht club and attractive marina.
