NJ has 565 municipalities, so... *shrug*

And only 52 of those are considered cities. Thanks, wikipedia.

I expected Camden to be the worst on the list.

The list is right about Passaic. Every time I drive or walk through there, my stomach just turns. Nasty streets, yucky apartment buildings, overcrowded, sucky stores, gloomy vibes... you can just smell the poverty and despair in the air.

Yes, Newark is mostly a complete dump but the article mentions Newark’s 35 minute commute time like its a bad thing. I’d kill for that commute time. I’m surprised that Irvington didn’t make the list; at least Newark has a few things going for it.

Oh and Paterson needs to be moved down at least 10 spots..

This is basically just a list of poor cities. You can be rich and miserable. I object to the use of the word miserable here. I live in Union City and I’m one of the happiest people I know.

I just read this in a Florida forum. It was posted by a former New Yorker. Figures.

Union City, WNY, Weehawken...these towns are all the same. Real estate is booming because of their close proximity to NYC. Other than location these towns don't really have any other redeeming qualities. They are way too overcrowded and congested for my taste.
