In 1836 the extension of the Morris Canal into Jersey City at Little Basin from Newark was completed, making it the eastern terminus of the canal. It linked Jersey City with the anthracite coal fields of northeastern Pennsylvania for "black gold" on flat-bottomed boats to arrive at the city and promote industrial development.

Few vestiges of the original canal are visible today
