I've already acknowledged the Brazil-level inequality of Essex County. I broke it up into suburban vs urban essex; which really is a tale of 2 counties.

... so that's in Morris county, which is fine. With the exception of a few towns I only find Morris County desirable place to live in North Jersey.

Agree,

Also I find in the last year or so in Bergen County the tailgaters have become extremely aggressive.
Years ago it was a fun relaxing place to drive... no more.

I loved the waterfront area of City. Its like a cleaner, newer and more utopian version of Manhattan.
I agree that there is that scene here (especially around the PATH), but my unscientific, completely anecdotal guestimate is that 75-85% of the bro culture is actually imported via the NJ Transit lines that terminate here with kids coming in from the suburbs to party. I've lived in one of the mega-buildings in the northeast corner, and now in a smaller condo building in the dead middle of town, and have yet to meet anyone who actually lives here that fits that description. It's like the whole lower-half of town is invaded on the weekends.

I mean, I'm sure there are some bro-types that live here, but Hoboken's current demographics seem more in-line with Park Slope than Staten Island. Unfortunately the nightlife doesn't reflect that.

Yeah, totally agree. Except for the actual college students at Stevens (and honestly, from what I've seen they skew more Asian), no one that I know that actually lives in Hoboken fits that description. But Hoboken has a lot of bars concentrated in that one area by the PATH, so it attracts young people from elsewhere in NJ who want to party. Any other restaurant/bar in town away from the PATH isn't like that at all. You just see normal late 20-early 40s people. Check out Grand Vin, Stingray Lounge, Antique. Young professionals and young parents on a night out are the usual crowd. I mean, yeah....people wear hoodies. My non-white, pushing 40, Dad of 2 husband wears hoodies on weekends when it's cold. But he's far from a frat bro.

Same here. A hoodie is my "running out to Duane Reade real quick" uniform.

I would say its a mix. Hoboken is definitely a Bro town and many live there. However over the last 10 years it has changed as the stroller mafia is slowly taking over. So the town is getting older as people get married and have kids but dont want to move to the burbs yet. But on weekends the bros from all of NJ to flock to Hoboken as has always been the case.


Of course you always have the option of just going into the city. a good portion of the town does this and rarely hangs out local.

sounds like you'd be good in piermont, new york, nyack, tarrytown, or ossining, which has some luxurious town house community on the hudson, even though sing sing is right up the hill. mount kisco would be a cheaper option. even yonkers has a few options right by the train station if you're adventurous enough. $700,000 would get you an opulent condo in the leafy riverdale section of the bronx, and the taxation would be far less. fort lee would also be an option, although its pace is frenetic, indeed, as is river edge, edgewater, and cliffside park, along the river road vicinity. what of monsey, new york or suffern?

No one mentions CLiffside Park. Is it exactly like the other communities?

actually, the taxes are lower in EC... part of the reason why the houses are more expensive.

there should be some red or orange dots in central park as I'm sure I saw a few hobos living there that did not appear very educated.
