Jersey City is miles ahead of Newark in terms of improvement. The downtown area of JC started improving a decade ago and today many people are already getting priced out. Many other neighborhoods in JC have also improved in the last 5-10 years. The south end of the city beyond Liberty State Park is still a trouble spot in terms of crime.

Downtown and central ward yes, rest of the wards are the same and will never change as poverty,gangs and drugs and crime prevent any redevelopment so the burdens (higher taxes for suburbs ,crime in neighboring areas like the white couple killed in short hills, teenagers having kids they cant afford) of the poor performing wards will stay the same.



Bigger issue is most states have 1 city to support while in nj we have camden, jersey city, newark, hoboken, passaic,rahway, east elizabeth ,irvington etc. the only good areas are ones neighboring nyc or 20 mins via train from nyc so the surburbs will keep having rising taxes. Eventually people in the suburbs will get fed up and leave meaning taxes will need to go higher to make up for the folks leaving OR cut funding to mentioned cities and starve them but this would generate more crime. Basically nj is screwed.
