Hello All,

My wife and I currently live in Arkansas and are looking to relocate to a city where not only is there much diversity but also career opportunities. We are a mixed family, my wife is African-American and myself Caucasian. We just had our first child and are looking to move somewhere that is culturally diverse, many things to do, and plenty of career opportunities. We have realized that we want to move someplace where we can stay for awhile instead of relocating again. Looking to move in about 8 months but trying to start early to find a place that fits us. We appreciate any suggestions and thank you in advance.

As far NJ is concerned, the best option is probably Maplewood or South Orange. Piscataway, Teaneck, and Montclair are also quite diverse.

Compared to Arkansas, I'm sure almost anywhere in NJ, esp in North East/Central NJ you would have no problems finding diversity. This is one of the most diverse areas of the country!

"Career opportunities" will depend on your line of work. You're moving to one of the most expensive areas of the country, so hopefully you've got experience in a career field that pays well.

I would stick to the Northern part of the state. Areas that are closest to Manhattan, which is where the most opportunity would be, work wise. Most people in Northern Jersey commute to NYC for work.

If you're looking to work in NJ then I would consider areas close to Jersey City, Newark, or possibly even Paramus. They're the biggest of the cities with the most corporate offices.

But then again it depends on your line of work.
