What began as rich farmland and later transformed into an industrial hub, thanks to the area’s national railroad system, is modern day Jersey City, a sprawling area flanked by the Hackensack River to the west and the Hudson River to the East. It’s directly across the river from Manhattan, but Jersey City apartments come with convenience at a fraction of Big Apple prices, making it an attractive city to call home for people looking for more space without having to sacrifice big-city amenities.
Commuting to Manhattan for work or entertainment is a breeze, thanks to the area’s reliable transit system and nearby highways. Get to New York’s Penn Station in less than an hour by way of the NJ Transit Rail or Bus, or hop on I-78 and cross the river straight into SoHo in 15 minutes from Downtown Jersey City apartments. But just because Jersey City is close to NYC doesn’t mean residents have to head across the Hudson for something to do!
Jersey City is comprised of several unique neighborhoods with some neighborhoods and sub-sections located inside each one, much like Manhattan. Larger areas include Bergen-Lafayette, the Heights, Jersey City’s Historic Downtown, Greenville, Journal Square and the West Side, all of which offer unique Jersey City apartments and residential communities, plenty of entertainment options and distinct neighborhood personalities. In fact, many New Yorkers are considering moving to Jersey City from more expensive, crowded Big Apple homes to Jersey City apartments, attracted by New York establishments opening up shop across the Hudson and the growing local commercial districts sprouting up downtown and beyond.
The growing area has truly become an economic hub along the Hudson as companies like Chase Bank, Lehman Brothers, Merrill Lynch and Charles Schwab set up shop across from New York’s iconic skyscrapers. The city is also home to plenty of educational establishments, including the New Jersey City University, Saint Peter’s University and Hudson County Community College, with the University of Phoenix, Rutgers and the State University of New Jersey operating satellite campuses conveniently located to Jersey City apartments. Getting where you need to go has never been easier - you can truly find it all right here in Jersey City!
