Located in Hudson County, Weehawken is a township in New Jersey with a population of 12,554 as of 2010. Weehawken is technically a part of the New York metropolitan area, however, it is situated along the western shore of the Hudson River. Amongst many towns, Weehawken is one that helps comprise North Hudson. Specifically, the name "Weehawken" comes from the Algonquian Lenape language meaning "rocks that look like trees", as spoken by the Hackensack and Tappan tribes. Moreover, the term Weehawken refers to the Palisades, which is where most of the town sits atop. Due to the popularity of the word, the name and place has been mentioned in literature such as Dr. Seuss' The Lorax and Carl Sandburg's Pulitzer Prize winning book of poetry, Cornhuskers.
