About the Neighborhood


As property values soar across the five boroughs of New York City, many are setting their sights on what has been recently named "New York City's Best Neighborhood" by Curbed magazine, Jersey City. While the Wall Street crowd has long been attracted to the promise of cheaper rents and a speedy ride into the city, Jersey City has shaken off previous misconceptions to become the premier place to live and play for people of all backgrounds and walks of life.

One of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world, Jersey City has evolved a globally cosmopolitan ambience of its own that surpasses New York City's top 'nabes'. This neighborhood guide provides the secrets to help you get around easily, sniff out locals’ favorite hangouts and get a taste of Jersey City’s exemplary dining.

Transportation


With so many transportation options available, it’s no surprise that nearly half of Jersey City commuters take public transit. That’s the second highest percentage of riders for any U.S. city with a population over 100,000, behind only New York City and in front of Washington, D.C.

Whether by rail, water or roadway, getting around Jersey City (and over to Manhattan) is simple.
