Furthermore, North Bergen is filled with history. It was initially inhabited by Lenape Native American tribes until Dutch settlers moved in. In 1658, the Director-General of New Netherlands, Peter Stuyvesant, purchased the land and allowed the settlement of Bergen to be founded in 1660. Four years thereafter, the British took custody of Fort Amsterdam and the colony, creating the state's first four counties in 1682. Originally called North Hudson, the area underwent massive urbanization and immigration throughout the late 1800s. Many new villages were created, and borders shifted several times before resulting in the North Bergen residents know and love today.
