Sibling DNA Test in New Jersey


Many travellers fly into Newark Liberty International airport but few actually have a look around the state of New Jersey. Newark, Jersey City and Paterson are all worth a visit for different and exciting reasons.

Newark has come a long way since the 1960s race riots which made it a dangerous place; it is now enjoying a renaissance.

The city’s ‘piece de resistance’ is the New Jersey Performing Arts Centre, where you can book to see national opera, dance, jazz and the national orchestra. There is also the ‘Rock’, or Prudential Centre, which has become the central point for sports and is also home to the New Jersey Devils Hockey team as well as hosting basketball games and concerts.

Jersey City is the second largest city in New Jersey and boasts Brownstones, high rises, parks and a waterfront, the Liberty Science Centre is also here and the art gallery Mana Contemporary. Jersey City’s crowning glory is the Statue of Liberty which is on the doorstep; there are also lots of great restaurants and an indie shopping circuit.

The top ten things to do in Jersey City are as follows, you have to see The Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Number two on your list should be the Liberty Science Centre; it has an IMAX theatre, an I-beam to balance on 18 feet up and lots of interactive hands-on learning designed for all ages.

Number 3 is a racetrack for go karts on an epic scale, calling all speed demons; the track at Pole Position Raceway is an 80,000 square foot indoor karting facility which features the fastest electric cars in the US. Fourth would be get cooking with Cake Boss, the star of the TV show, The Kitchen, you can take a class with them and learn how to impress your friends with amazing Pecan wedges or Fondant Layer Cake. Number 5 is Liberty State Park, head here for a cool breeze and stunning views of the NYC skyline this is also where you hop on the ferry to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island. Sixth on the list is exploring the melting pot that is Jersey City with over 90 different nationalities there is plenty to see, smell and eat. Seventh on the list comes the Loew’s Jersey Theatre, which is a delicate old world palace built back in 1929 with gilded marble columns and tapestries. Eighth on the list is the shopping, head to the Urban Enterprise Zones for great bargains and super indie shops as well as big brands and boutiques. Number nine is taking a themed cruise on the Hudson River. The last activity on the list at number 10 is exploring the history of Jersey City, Bergen’s square’s Apple Tree Hours was the site of many Revolutionary battles during the war. There is a walking tour which allows you to view architectural relics from a bygone era.

Paterson NJ was the original centre for industry in the USA and the Paterson Museum pays tribute to this fact. From paper production to manufacturing plane engines, the Rogers Company became the most ingenious locomotive engineering company in the US at the time. The Curtiss-Wright Corporation during World War II was the centre for production of engines. By 1920 the Wright Aeronautical Corporation built the Whirlwind and Cyclone aircraft engines, which made aeronautical history.  The museum is small but surprisingly good.

If you have the time and inclination take a day to visit the Great Falls National Historical Park, the magnificent falls go down 80 feet to a rocky gorge and there is a visitors centre where you will find video and graphic information to tell you about this natural wonder. There are also hiking trails to be discovered as well as a bit of history, the Jersey Jumper, Sam Patch jumped off the falls in 1827 and also performed stunts at Niagara Falls. The Falls have even appeared in an episode of ‘The Sopranos’, where the mob chucks someone over the edge. There is also free parking and the park is accessible to wheelchair users.
