Bayonne is a city in Hudson County, New Jersey, United States. As of the United States 2000 Census, the city had a total population of 61,842. Located in the Gateway Region, Bayonne is a peninsula that is situated between Newark Bay which borders the west, the Kill van Kull to the south, and New York Bay which lies to the east.

The city of Bayonne is 9 miles (14 km) east of Newark, the state's largest city, and borders Jersey City to the north. Bayonne is connected to Staten Island, New York by the Bayonne Bridge. The Bayonne Bridge is lit in patriotic colors (red, white & blue) in the evenings, as a 9/11 memorial initiated by a then 8-year-old girl in the summer of 2002, Veronica (Roni) Marie Granite, with the assistance of then-Municipal Councilmember-at-Large Maria Karczewski. Bayonne includes large communities of Italian, Irish, Polish, and Latino Americans.

Bayonne was originally formed as a township on April 1, 1861, from portions of Bergen Township. Bayonne was reincorporated as a city by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on March 10, 1869, replacing Bayonne Township, subject to the results of a referendum held nine days later.[5]
