Having grown up in North Bergen I could see Manhatten in the distance. I left at age 27 went to college in Calif San Fran which was awesome, lived in Calif, Fl and now Tenn. I get around but i am actually considering moving back to NJ.

Hoboken has gotten very expensive, but you can get a house for under 450,000 easily, secaucus, clifton, are fine places to live, take a train into the city, or you can try Long Island which is very nice also. The rents in NJ are very high and for you newbies to the area, jersey usually requires a 1.5 months of security which i think is highway robbery. lol

I am now also considering Northern Va which is very pricey as well, hence why people pack up and move to Florida so many come back but many dont' lol Good luck in your searches. Jersey was awesome when i grew up there a mix of small towns in Bergen county was our hang out fort lee, etc its still charming around there. I miss it. We have good physicians and easy access to healthcare compared to other states i have lived in....

I would actually put the bergenline area of North Bergen as an up and coming hip place that's a reasonably close commute to the city. You got the huge park, a lively community, a bustling vibe with many good ethnic restaurants - can think of at least 3 very good italian joints (2 of which are hip), Cuban, Spanish tapas, halal platters, italian deli, Brazilian and plenty more. It's safe but definitely more gritty feeling than overly gentrified places like hoboken. It prides itself on being a progressive community.

You did a really good job making bergenline sound hip. It's not hip at all, but you did a good job.
