True this is from the NJCU Jersey City Past and Present website….

Bergen Square

Intersection of Bergen Avenue and Academy Street

The settlement of New Netherland by the Dutch West India Company (1621-1664) on the western side of the Hudson River contributed several locations and place names that would become part of present-day Jersey City. They were Pavonia, Communipaw, Harsimus, Paulus Hook and Bergen.

The village of Bergen, officially begun on September 5, 1661, is regarded as New Jersey's first permanent settlement and the state's first local civil government. It is now part of the City of Jersey City.

A relic from the past turns up just in time for the Bergen Square Festival

Today 2:28 PM (05/16/2019)
By David Mosca | The Jersey Journal

Old becomes new this Saturday in Jersey City and you can check it out.

The Journal Square Community Association, the Bergen Square Historical Society, the Journal Square Restoration Corporation, and the Jersey City Office of Cultural Affairs have put together the Bergen Square Festival, an event they hope will be the first of many celebrating the history, culture and vibrancy of the community.

And, as a bonus, visitors can check out the original deed for the community’s historic Van Wagenen Apple Tree House, which dates back to 1688.
