Have you ever heard of Perth Amboy, New Jersey?
Did you know they can actually claim, first in flight and have one of only 53 replicas of the Liberty Bell? They even have their original seal that is 300 years old, the oldest city seal in America.
I never heard of Perth Amboy until I saw this video. The City of Perth Amboy is part of the New York metropolitan area. As of the 2010 United States Census, the city’s population was 50,814.

But there is so much history of American history in this city and they have only recently discovered much of it. They call themselves ‘A City of First’ and after seeing this I believe they can claim the title.

Over the next few days, watch for stories on some of the historic homes in Perth Amboy, New Jersey of some of America’s most famous citizens.
