I'd love to hear someone argue against me; for all I know Jersey City is the most happening place in the NYC area. It's been a few years since I was last down there.

Here are pictures of the two places:

That Jersey City pic is a bit dated, here are more recent ones:

In Hudson County, I've always felt like Hoboken was kind of a Cambridge/Back Bay Hybrid, Newport is like an up and coming Financial district and Bayonne was kind of like Dorchester. The Cities to the north were kind of a combination of some of the other Boston neighborhoods without the universities. Sure, Boston is wealthier overall, but I see Hudson County improving every time I go there.
