I just have to comment on the posts earlier about the statue of liberty. It's official location is "Jersey City/New York" Most of the Island belongs to New Jersey, according to the supreme court. I mean Jersey has better views and in Hudson you can get to it with more ease than New York.

We can get to zoos in Manhattan and Brooklyn quicker than you can. Our population is smaller so we don't have as many people on top of us in certain areas. You can get some damn quiet. As far as amenities if you live in downtown jersey or hoboken and have the money. Good luck beating a 2 bedroom apartment in a high rise with views of manhattan, which are lovely at night. That comes with a door man and possibly a concierge, depending on which building you live in. Also you can't beat the commute. From the golden coast (boulevard east/river road area) it can take between 20 minutes and 8 minutes to get to 40th street. From downtown Jersey you can take the path to wtc in 5 minutes or take the 33rd street train which stops at christopher, 9th, 14th, 23rd, and 33rd for... 1.75.

We have giants stadium and the meadowlands which lots of shopping and just a nice area overall. Also north hudson park isn't bad.

What I do like about the bronx are the random forest with some big frogs you can find.

I've lived in the bronx most of my live but I much prefer New Jersey. People are nicer, views are phenominal, commute to manhattan and other boroughs are quicker than when I lived in the bronx.

What amenities does that bronx have???????

As far as views go, we can have lush greenery and city views. In the bronx you likely just have a view of another brick wall or building. Unless you are in the more "suburb" areas and you have a view of the home across the street.

As far as commute. I used to live in the bronx and have to commute to the the financial district everyday. At times it would take me up to two and a half hours on bad days and normally 90-100 minutes. I used to live in Weehawken as well and from there it took me 40-45 minutes to get to the financial district. That's taking 1 of the 6 buses that run super often on boulevard east to the port authority and then hopping on the A train. Versus taking the 6 train from the first stop to brooklyn bridge. I would switch over to the express since only the local is up there, but sometimes the expresses were late or overcrowded. Always had a comfy seat from New Jersey. Also transit to that area runs 24/7. Nj transit busses stop at 1 or 2 but private bus companies (about 3 different runs) run all night.

1.ALERT TO CLUELESS NEW JERSEYANS- The statue of liberty is a NYC ATTRACTION. We nyers understand you have to steal our attractions because you have none for yourself. But please stop embarrassing yourselves. Nobody associates the statue of liberty with the state of new jersey nor jersey city. So stop it fools

2. People from new jersey cant get to anything quicker than i can. Stop acting like all of hudson county lives with a train station right down stairs. The GAP widens even further if we start talking transportation by car. Theres enough express buses and trains for bronxites to get into manhattan much quicker than the majority of jersey residents

3. The bronx zoo is the best in the northeast and one of the best in the world. Why would i care what type of access ,a small minority of jerseyans, have to the wack as# central park zoo.lol

4.Also jersey and its cities show how lame they are by leeching off another city in a completely different state. Jerseyans suck nycs money maker so much that they try to use their access to manhattan against other locations that are actually IN NYC. What a joke. Completely forgetting the fact that all boros(sans staten) are closer to manhattan than it is and has a much wider range of public transit options to get to manhattan. The bronx is nyc-millions spend taxes in this boro to help make the city what it is, what would jersey city be without its proximity to new york


YOUR A CITY WHOSE MAIN SELLING POINT IS A VIEW OF ANOTHER CITY. pLEASE LOL

tHE BRONX IS JUST A BOROUGH AND HAS MORE WELL KNOWN THINGS THAN HUDSON COUNTY

Or jersey city AKA- I only have skyscrapers because im close to new york
AKA- We gladly market ourselves as BROOKLYN WEST since we have no culture or identity for ourselves

Or Hoboken AKA- the alternative to SOHO since we have no identity of our own

I forgot to add the fact that the bronx has more people than any city or providence in new jersey.


I guess for those living in the slums of newark,JC,camden and all the other hell holes in jersey-the bronx would be an upgrade huh openheads.

Lol, wow, you do realize that you're the only one representing the Bronx on here, and seeing how naive and immature you're acting, it's probably one of the many reasons why the Bronx is losing. How old are you?.. sheesh

The bronx has a lingering stigma stemmed from the seventies. Most people vote against without knowing what the heck they're talking about. It is what it is

Oh please, I live on Staten Island. If anything, you should relate, NJ has bad undeserved stigma too, but you seem to cling on to NJ's stigma to avoid the Bronx's.

It's really a shame.

If there is any place that suffers from people talking about it without knowing what it is ... it's New Jersey.
