New Jersey is the country's fourth-smallest state by land mass but its most densely populated, with approximately 1,200 inhabitants per square mile. Averaging about 15 square miles each, the state's 565 municipalities sit fairly close to one another. Some are relatively huge: Newark has about 277,000 inhabitant and Jersey City, 247,000. But as you'll see from this list, there are some very tiny municipalities with unusual provenance. Entries are ordered by population.
