On June 1, 1925, the Town of Union and Township of West Hoboken joined together forming what is now, Union City. Throughout the 1950s and 1960s, middle and upper class Cubans began to settle here quickly adapting to assist in the revival of local businesses.
Union City is home to many elaborate houses of worship whose architectural beauty has attracted many for years. The arts are another notable feature of Union City with many artists, writers and poets living here. Recently, the city has been undergoing a bit of an artistic renaissance. The mayor and Board of Commissioners even created the Union City Artist Collective, a committee dedicated to promoting the arts.
With picturesque art, inspiring architecture, a superb school system and a rich and interesting history, Union City is a beautiful, diverse place continuing to prosper and grow every day.
