Guttenberg (pronounced /ˈɡʌtənbɜrɡ/), is a town in Hudson County, New Jersey, United States. As of the United States 2000 Census, the town population was 10,807. The town is a bedroom community with about 36% of its employed residents working in New York City.

Only four blocks wide, Guttenberg is one of the smallest municipalities in New Jersey. However, it is also the most densely populated incorporated place in the country, with over twice the density of New York City.[7]

Guttenberg was formed as a town on March 9, 1859, from portions of North Bergen Township.[8]

Recent scandals include the convictions of the mayor, David Delle Donna, and his wife, a member of the town planning board, on federal extortion and mail fraud charges;[9] a former mayor, Peter LaVilla, who pleaded guilty in 2003 to misappropriating campaign funds and using the money for a private brokerage account; a councilman who resigned after being accused of receiving illegal advances on his salary; and a chief financial officer, who pleaded guilty in 2002 to misappropriation of funds.[10]
