- Wright, E. Assata. "Secaucus: How do you pronounce it? Development put town on map, but newcomers don’t know where they are", Hudson Reporter, July 6, 2011. "Therefore, the new neighbors may proudly totter about telling folks they live in Sih-KAW-cus or See-KAW-cus. However, natives prefer that the accent be on the first syllable, as in: SEE-kaw-cus.... Bayonne is bay-OWN, not ba-YON, locals say. Kearny is Kar-nee, not Keer-nee."
