Back in the day when Union City was mostly Cuban, it was a fantastic place.

I remember those pressed Cuban sandwiches.

I may be renting an apartment in a Duplex on 23rd Street and Central Ave. I don't know anything about New Jersey or Union City at all as I am moving from Tampa, FL.

I did live in Pelham Bay (Bronx) for two years and I loved it. Is this similar??

I am 29, white, average looking and single. Would this be a safe choice for me since I know no one in the area?

I keep reading that there is a move to push all the Hispanics out of Union City and they are (rightfully) upset about it so they are resentful.

Would that mean that I could be a target for crime?

Default union city

My wife and I recently moved to Union City when we found we were having a baby....it's more affordable than Hoboken and we needed more space. We are a white 33 year old couple and have found our neighbors and most people we have met to be very nice and welcoming. My impression is that most people in Union City are hardworking and want to have a nice area.

We have found the area, and people, to be much nicer than the JC Heights.

I just find it curious because I grew up not to far from there, and I have probably never met anyone of cuban descent ever.

Pretty much...lots have changed since then.

I'm sorry..honestly, I grew up in UC..I say run to the border!! Definetly check out Hoboken or Weehawken...The only prob is that i dont think you can find anything decent under 1000..not even a one bedroom. I could be wrong, since its been years since I lived there. I also lived in Weehawken and loved it.

Good Luck and stay out of UC!!
