Elizabeth ,NJ had more manufacturing jobs than any other place I know of ,It was a Great place to learn HOW to do things..3 major BEARING manufacturing plants ,Auto assembly ,plants Singer Sewing machine manufacturing plant (5000 employees).Sewing Factories(I owned one)150 employees….5 major Drug Manufactures(MERCK) the largest..Philps DODGE Copper products…etc BAYWAY Oil Refinery in Linden NJ next door…

George Washington and Alexander Hamilton started the first manufacturing in the country in Passiac NJ,near a waterfall for power….If you wanted to know HOW to do something somebody in Elizabeth knew how to do it….
