In 1940, the Federal Shipbuilding and Drydock Company of Kearny, NJ built 700 units of temporary housing for defense workers 17 miles to the south near the towns of Linden, Clark, and Cranford. The company was liquidated in 1948. The temporary housing still stands. It is now the town of Winfield Park.
