And im not saying hoboken is "Bad" cuz obviously its on level 1.

Harrison is decent and definately improving. My father grew up in a Polish neighborhood and very working-class section of Harrison. While blue collar, crime was never out of control. Harrison has still maintained its working class feel.

sounds right. i remember mentioning that a while back and people suggesting there are so few blacks in hoboken that it was ridiculous. i have since visited my brother in hoboken and walked around and i encountered a decent number of them. what i found particularly offensive about that story was that they openly called out that him and has friends didnt belong there because of the color of their skin.

That is literally a block by block situation. East of Branch Brook Park, if you are closer to the park, it's nicer. Towards Mt Prospect and Broadway, the neighborhood declines. If you are in the area west of Branch Brook Park, you want to stay between Roseville Ave and 12th Street. Something tells me, however, you are in the area east of Branch Brook Park, because the other 2nd Ave is more of a thru street.
