Jersey City Is On A Serious comeback.

you will all soon be complaining that ny people took it from you.

Much like you complain about hoboken being taken from you, much like the minorities in Harlem being taken from them by reverse white flight.



Jersey city rocks and in the next few years will be like Hoboken.

Jersey City is too big and there's too many spots like MLK Blvd, streets off of Montgomery, areas like Journal Square to say that in a few years it'll be like Hoboken. That's truly stretching it. However there are a few smaller spots that are so desirable that, if I had the money, I'd consider moving into, particularly the Pavonia/Newport area. I remember when none of that was there. What a startling transfomation took place there..

Default Still some crime issues

Jersey City is definitely making a turn around. I live on Grove next to the Path. The city still has some crime issues though. Several apartments in my building were recently robbed, I know there were about 4 or 5 muggings a in late June/early July. I still don't see enough cops out on the street. So while there is some great potential, I think they need to really put more effort into reducing crime...That will be the deciding factor if Jersey City will look like a Hoboken in the next few years.

I agree with you jerseycity79 we def needs the police enforce - that is crucial.
We had to complain and complain to get 20 more police here fulltime in the "Heights"it's like pulling teeth. It's condo conversion after condo conversion up here - everywhere.

And biscman you are WAY-WAY out of line.....

Jersey City is experiencing a construction boom unlike any before.

Too many Indians? Biscman what's your deal?

I've heard both realtors and Donald Trump both saying it's the next up and coming hot spot......And I don't believe either one of them.

They built up and are still building up Edgewater and now the market is so flooded nothing is moving.

LOL of course D. Trumps gonna say it because he putting up two residential towers in JC! Granted there's lots of construction going on but it'll be a little while before it can be labeled a hot spot

i think it's a little late in the game to say jc is experiencing a comeback. it's already back, just take a look around the downtown area and compare it to 10, even 5 years ago. the changes are staggering. obviously, it's a large city and will always have it's rougher neighborhoods, but it's a great city right now. areas like journal sqaure and parts of the heights are getting nicer and other spots are poised for more development as well.
