A quick ride from the One World Trade Center brings residents to the diverse community of Jersey City, where the waterfront business district contrasts to the homely, tree-lined streets deeper into the city.
A strong sense of community and high quality of living and proximity are major draws, downtown residents can ride to Manhattan faster than some might imagine: ten minutes to the Financial District, and a palatable 20 to Midtown. Not too shabby.
Jersey City is connected by the light rail, PATH lines, and a network of New Jersey Transit bus routes, making transit between other sections cities in New Jersey — as well as NYC — a breeze.
As for housing, Jersey City’s neighborhoods feature Brownstone lined parks or historic single-family mansions. For more modern real estate, there’s high-rise, luxury condominiums along the waterfront, and new developments in the works amid the residential boom, with over 15,000 units planned over the next five years.
