Jersey City

The Ethnically Diverse Sixth Borough of Manhattan
Jersey City is the second largest city in New Jersey. As part of the Garden State, access to stunning hiking and biking trails are only a short drive away. Jersey City also has an ethnically diverse restaurant and bar scene, art galleries, and local concerts and events. If you are a fan of football, it is home to the Red Bull Arena and the MetLife Stadium. The area's location and the New Jersey Transit allows very easy transportation into the Big Apple. Jersey City offers gorgeous, unobstructed views of the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.

Rents are much more affordable in Jersey City compared to New York City. Depending on where you are looking, there are brownstone and brick row houses, high-rise towers, and Victorian and Edwardian mansions. More and more people are moving to Jersey City to experience its history, character, and vibrancy.

Jersey City — 8.1/10 Rating (based on 11 neighborhood reviews)
Journal Square contains Little India - tons of delicious Indian restaurants and grocery stores. Other than that, most of the food options are fast food (e.g. McDonalds, Subway, Popeye's). Grocery stores aren't great - just a rundown C-town. BUT there is a weekly farmers' market at the PATH station, which is awesome. And not that many coffee shop options - just Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts. I've never felt unsafe in Journal Square, but there are often regular beggars and scammers near the train station and it's definitely not as gentrified as Grove Street or Hoboken.

Grove Pointe
Very safe neighbourhood which is always active. There are a number of eatout spots, including a spot on the same block where a jazz band plays live outside every Sunday afternoon in the fall and summer, bringing a nice musical feel to the street.

Not many upscale restaurant choices, trendy bars or coffee shops. Not much shopping, a grocery store C-Town is a 10-minute walk away. Upside is there is a "Little India" with great Indian restaurants.
