Life here is ok but it’s nothing more than that, life. I just know I guaduate in a few months and I will not hesitate to leave. Most of my family is across the Hudson (also where I was born). So, I go out of my way to make trips out to the city. There really isn’t much to Jersey. Perhaps, I’m a bit biased because I’m basically a New Yorker residing in Jersey City, but there is truth to what I’m saying. Come here if you want. I won’t be the one to recommend you do.over 6 years ago
I live here now. After growing up in Park Slope, Brooklyn this is exactly the kind of place that warms my heart. The reminiscent feeling I get when I walk around is so nice. Tree lined blocks, bricked walls and tall ceilings, what else could a girl ask for. Numerous parks with dog walks. Very diverse with different nationalities and sexual orientations in one area! Easy commute to the City, diverse foods and cultures. I love it!over 6 years ago
I lived near Newark Ave. for a few months back in 1995. I did not like it very much. All of the stores closed at 6pm. There were riots outside the high school nearby. Someone stole my roommate’s car. People were very unfriendly.
There was some excellent pizza here. Gianni’s and some place at the Journal Square PATH station.
Also, I was closer to lower Manhattan here than when I lived in uptown Manhattan (Washington Heights).over 6 years ago
When I was younger, the skyway meant that I was just about home from work… but most memorable to me about my time there is my Grandfather who passed this year. He was a cop in Jersey city for 20+ years. He loved Jersey City and so do I… good times ;)over 6 years ago
