With immigrants hailing from more than 125 places around the world, New Jersey represents almost as many countries as the United Nations.

The Garden State, home to 1.9 million foreign-born residents, has one of the highest concentration of immigrants of any state.

Among our state's 565 municipalities, only two — Pine Valley in Camden and Walpack in Sussex — have no immigrant neighbors. But everywhere else in New Jersey, you'll find immigrants.

This week, New Jersey 101.5 explores New Jersey's immigrants — how they've changed our state and how our state has changed them.

We dug deep into the U.S. Census and created an interactive map that shows what the dominant immigrant group is in your town. (You can find the map at the end of this story. It's best viewed on a desktop computer.)

Here's what else we found out:

In Jersey City, with its views of the Statute of Liberty and Ellis Island, immigrants number 105,000. That's more than the population of almost every town in the state.

Towns in green have high number of Asian immigrants. See full map below.

But the folks putting down roots in the city aren't coming from the same countries that sent the immigrants who once passed under Lady Liberty's torch. Most of Jersey City's immigrants today come from Asia, particularly India. Asians — indicated in our map by the color green — also are the dominant immigrant group across Central Jersey.

But no part of the world sends more people to New Jersey than Latin America (indicated on our map with yellow.) More than 872,000 people in New Jersey were born in Latin America.

European immigrants, many who came to the United States decades ago, still remain in New Jersey. They are the dominant immigrant groups in the northwestern corner of the state as well as the Jersey Shore. (They're represented on our map with blue.)

As new immigrants pour in, the ethnic communities we once associated with certain towns have been supplanted by newcomers.

For example, the top country of origin for immigrants in Newark is not Portugal (7,610 immigrants) or Brazil (8,610), but Ecuador (with 13,762). The Portuguese have moved to Elizabeth, Kearny and South River, and they're the most represented country for immigrants in Hillside, Clark and Mountainside.

Cubans no longer dominate in Union City, which is now home to more Dominican immigrants. The new Cuban immigrant communities today include North Bergen, West New York and Elizabeth.

We found only two towns where the top immigrant nationalities were African. The Camden borough of Magnolia had 70 immigrants from Ghana while the Cape May borough of Woodbine had 23 from the West African nation.

Mapping NJ's immigrants

Zoom in and click on a town to see the geographic breakdown of where its immigrants come from as well as that town's top immigrant nationality. The towns are color-coded based on the region of the world where most of the immigrants come from: Yellow for Latin America, green for Asia, blue for Europe and red for Africa. In some cases, the top nationality differs from the top region.
