Why You Seriously Need To Be Living In Jersey City

Dec 21, 2017

There’s an answer to living in a glorified closet, with sky high rents and annoying neighbors/roomates who you can't ever seem to escape. 

Forget all your preconceived notions about the Garden State (well, most of them) and hear us out for a second: there’s a lot going on in Jersey City. In recent years, JC is enjoying a major renaissance as more people are horrified with New York City prices and are moving across the Hudson, similar to what happened with Brooklyn not too long ago.

Jersey City is offering countless great apartments, restaurants, bars, and more. To prove it, we’ve rounded up the best reasons to ditch Manhattan and venture over the Hudson...

1. Real Estate.

Besides lots of available rental real estate, luxury condos are shooting up all over town. Most notably, the Ellipse along the Newport Waterfront.

Located at 25 Park Lane South, the apartment features some of the best views you'll find of the New York skyline.

                                                                                                                                          THE ARCHER

2. Best Places to Eat and Drink


The Archer opened just before the new year came and quickly established itself as a local favorite.

                                                                                                                                                BWÈ KAFE


In the Newport area of Jersey City, Bwè is a Hoboken-based coffeehouse whose name means "drink coffee" in Haitian Creole. It's more than the kind of place you grab a cup and go -- it's a neighborhood spot you'll want to hang out at...

3. Community.

Finding a dream apartment goes beyond the layout and architecture - equally important is the community vibe. 

Newport goes above and beyond to hold tons of inspiring events like the Newport Marathon, Newport 10K - and in the summer, outdoor movies events and beach parties.

4. The Commute. 

The PATH train makes Jersey City more accessible to Midtown (6th Ave from 9th Street to 33rd) and Downtown Manhattan (WTC) than most parts of Brooklyn. Newport is right across the river from NYC, just a 5-minute train ride from the nearby Newport PATH Station!

There are also plenty of ferries that can take you across the Hudson.


5. The L Train Apocalypse Is Coming.

The MTA Will Shut Down Tunnel for 18 Months in January 2019! 

6. The Views. 

I mean...the pictures speak for themeselves!
