New Brunswick has been described as the nation’s “most Hungarian city”, with Hungarian immigrants arriving in the city as early as 1888 and accounting for almost 20% of the city’s population in 1915. Hungarians were primarily attracted to the city by employment at Johnson & Johnson factories located in the city.

The immigrant population grew until the end of the immigration boom in the early 20th century.
