Elizabeth is the fourth largest city by population in New Jersey and the seat of Union County. Located 5 miles south of Newark, Elizabeth has never developed a sizeable skyline, though mid-rises built before and during the Great Depression characterize the Mid-Town Historic District in the core of the city's central business district.
