Fort Lee is situated along the Hudson River in New Jersey, across from Manhattan, New York. The George Washington Bridge connects the two cities over the Hudson River. During the American Revolutionary War, Fort Lee was used as an encampment. The current population of the city is approximately 38,000 people. Fort Lee is known as the birthplace of subliminal messaging after a story was reported in 1957 of an experiment conducted by James Vicary. He claimed increased sales of soft drinks and popcorn after flashing messages on a theater screen subliminally. Although it was reported later to be a false claim, the concept remained and flourished in modern marketing.
For a time in the early 1900s, Fort Lee originated the motion picture industry, and the city led the industry in attracting investment and skilled artists. During the 1910-1920 period, there were approximately fifteen studios in the city. They also used the area as a backdrop for many movies. Unfortunately, investment moved to Hollywood and the studios followed in the 1930s.
Since Fort Lee is considered part of New York City's metropolitan area, there are a multitude of things to do in the city and in the surrounding area. A few of these are listed:
- Fort Lee Historic Park
- Fort Lee Museum
- Ross Dock Picnic Area
- Constitution Park
- The Fort Lee Museum at the Judge Moore House
- Hudson Park
- Hudson Shakespeare Company – Shakespeare in the Park
