Great neighborhood, can walk everywhere, convenient to NYC
Great restaurants, lots of stores, many parks and so many friends waiting for you in this neighborhood. An incredible value when compared with what we found in NYC for the same price! Loved our apartment, especially the view right over the Hudson!

Urban but not über-urban like NYC
I lived in Jersey City for three years and loved it. The proximity to NYC was great, but it's also just a bit calmer than NYC itself. In retrospect, I think it's a great place to start a young family with Hamilton Park and Van Vorst Park beckoning as green space. More parks have opened since we left. Shopping was more than adequate -- Shoprite, Target, Home Depot, standard stores in the mall and plenty of small, local shops. It's a very mixed population in terms of race, nationality and income level as well, something that I value. And if you're looking for a church, I highly recommend the weekend services at OLC.

Park Ave in Hoboken
I loved that I was surrounded my recent college graduates and it was a easy walking distance to bars, restaurants and great nightlife. I I also appreciated that the bus stop was close by and ran frequently. The PATH was a good 14 block or 40 minute walk. The blocks are a lot longer then they are in the City, so that was a little disappointing because I was looking for something that would give me more then one way of getting into the city. The only thing I disliked was how far away the PATH was. In the Craigslist ad, it said walking distance to the PATH. It was a good 15 block-or 40 minute-walk and I didn't have the time or energy in the am to make that long trek. The blocks are a lot lengthier in Hoboken then in NYC, don't let the posts fool you.
