Why don't you try Hoboken. Or maybe upscale parts of Jersey City.

There are some nice parts of Jersey City where many young professionals are settling. Lots of upscale condo's/townhomes being built.

hi there, actually jersey city is quite large.

try walking in the greenville section at night by yourself. unless you are extremely knowledgeable in hand-to-hand combat or self-defense, you could be safe there. otherwise, i suggest driving by at night to check out the locals in that section.

to sum it up, the 'manhattan equivalents' are:

jersey city heights, downtown and paulis hook.

anymore someone may add?

other nearby cities that are somewhat equivalent to manhattan:

hoboken, weehawken, parts of union city, parts of jersey city...

a little further west are: montclair and parts of bloomfield (cheaper than montclair)

don't be fooled by all the glitter, it's still unsafe to walk home from pathmark
