Secaucus is a town in Hudson County, New Jersey, USA.
As of the United States 2000 Census, the town population was 15,931.
The town's name is pronounced "SEE-kaw-cus", with the accent on the first syllable,
not the second as often used by non-natives.
Secaucus was originally formed as a borough by an Act of the New Jersey Legislature on
March 12, 1900, from portions of North Bergen.
On June 7, 1900, Secaucus was incorporated as a town, replacing Secaucus borough,
based on the results of a referendum held on June 5, 1917.
Before the 1950s, Secaucus was home to a number of pig farms, rendering plants, and junk yards,
which gave the town a reputation for being one of the most odorous in the New York metropolitan area.
In 1963, debris from the demolition of Pennsylvania Station was carted over and dumped in the
Secaucus Meadowlands. In later decades Secaucus became more a commuter town.
Today it is the most suburban town in Hudson County.
New Jersey Monthly magazine ranked Secaucus as its 11th best place to live in its 2008
rankings of the "Best Places To Live" in New Jersey.
