Default Downtown Jersey City

Hi guys,

What is the area like on Wayne street by Brunswick (safety, real estate price, parking, etc)?


Thanks!
Jen

It's safe enough, but you could do better in Downtown JC. It's near Dixon Mills, the new condo conversion, but it's also near some lower-income housing. That area is kind of on the fringe of no man's land. Not much of a neighborhood feel.

Dixon Mills (which was converted to apartments before being converted to "condos") and Wayne and Brunswick Sts. are in downtown Jersey City, unless they picked them up and moved them....

Where's the lower income housing in that area?

There are projects on 2 of Dixon Mills' 4 sides I believe. Again, it's not a bad area by any means, I just think that the OP can find a better downtown neighborhood.

I think maybe they mean the rows of little brick houses nearby, or apartments over stores, not the Mud Flats or Montgomery Projects. They are all the way over on Montgomery St. several blocks away. Maybe the housing near St. Bridgets.

My 3 favorite neighborhoods are Van Vorst Park, Paulus Hook, and Hamilton Park, in that order. For more of a high-rise feel, Newport is OK, or down by Exchange Place.

Ok. Is it tough to get out of the Van Vorst/Paulus Hook area in the morning? I work in Livingston and it'd be pretty easy to get to 280 from Hamilton Park but I do like Van Vorst better...

Nah, it's not hard. I used to take 280 every morning. If anything it'll take 5 minutes more than from Hamilton Park. You can zip up on Jersey Ave, or go up through Journal Square.
