What can I expect from the neighborhoods around both the Grove St. and Journal Square stops? Looking into possibly locating there.

Grove Street is in the neighborhood of Harismus Cove which is nice, lots of restaurants, grocery stores, some bars, etc. Demographic are mid 20's to 30's...ton of students.

Journal Square is a lot more urban, it has a large South Asian community with their businesses strewn across Newark Ave. This is the oldest settlement of South Asians in the state. At night after everything closes it does get a bit sketchy IMO. Stick with Grove Street.

^^^ Appreciate it! I kinda figured that was the case from the rent prices.

Journal square is perfectly fine is you are used to urban life. It's probably not fine if you grew up in suburbs and wasn't very 'ethnic'.

Grove St. is like the Brooklyn of JC. Lots of hispters, lots of dogs, lots of really good bars and restaurants. They just opened a barcade there, and the beer garden is always fun. There's also a kyochon.
