Depends on what your willing to spend... Transportation in Urban Jersey runs 24/7 , with limited service between 11pm-5am on Weekdays and on Saturday and Sunday...

Budgets from 1100-1700$

Newark

The Ironbound is a nice part of Newark and has great Transportation connections to NYC , Philly , and the rest of the Northeast.... , Retail and food is catered towards the Portuguese which dominate the Ironbound section.

Jersey City

Historic Downtown , Van Vorst , and Paulus Hook are all nice areas in Jersey City with great Transportation , cafes , bars , and Retail options. There are a few pharmacies in both the Ironbound and Jersey City neighborhoods...

Kind of like "would you rather die by shooting or stabbing?"

All right, all right, there ARE some nice areas of Jersey to live in, if you're rich.

But transportation you do have in both.

Be realistic. "Nice" is relative. The Ironbound is "nice" compared to the rest of Newark, which isn't saying much, and it's OK during the day when businesspeople are walking around going to the restaurants, but judging by the looks of the creepers who hang out/reside at Newark Penn, I doubt the Ironbound is entirely safe at night.

This is right on the money. Ironbound is "OK" for Newark. And for those that didnt live there and disagree, I lived there for a while along with other parts of Newark.

The Creepers who hang around the Newark Penn at Night? LOL , its same thing around Penn station in NY or Atlantic Terminal in Brooklyn... There mostly Homeless Veterans who are harmless. There aren't business people walking around in that neighborhood , its tourists...

Well, I wouldn't want to live in those places, either. But to tell the truth, the only time they've said anything to me is to ask for a cigarette, which I'll give them.

Just boarded my train at Newark Penn. Got my popcorn!
