| As is the case with most state capitals, Trenton's largest generator of employment is the state government. Trenton also doubles up as the seat of Mercer County. Trenton's airport, just a few minutes away, has facilities for passenger and cargo and provides a quick link to NYC airports (the latter being only a one-hour drive away). Augmented by rail transportation and waterways as well as its proximity to Philadelphia, Trenton has become a de facto trade hub.
The industrialized Route 1 corridor running from New York City through New Jersey, Trenton and on to Philadelphia is home to a highly diversified commercial sector, notably in high technology and manufacturing as well as research and development facilities.
According to acinet.org Trenton's two largest employers (also in the top 50 employers in the state of New Jersey) are the State of New Jersey's Department of Law & Safety (4,200 employees) and Capital Health with its Mercer Campus and Regional Medical Center (3,000 employees).
