Jersey City has always been interesting to me, it really looks like a brand new city built next to Manhattan. Great photos and tour, definitely an area I will probably check out when I move that way.

Downtown Jersey City has become one of the most beautiful downtowns in the nation. It would be nice to see a little more architectural variation in those new condos, though.

It does seem a bit sterile aound Newport but I think the developers wanted to create a place that was clean, safe and upscale in contrast with the rest of JC at the time. Now Jersey City has improved to the point that this enclave stands out for being so monotonous and bland. But then again, maybe that suits the residents many of whom work in the financial houses, just fine.

I have stayed in Jersey City on my last two trips to NYC. Cheap accommodation, great views of Manhattan, peace and quiet and its moderness and cleanliness have to be its strengths.

If you check out the photos again, you will notice that there is hardly a soul walking the streets. It lacks the vibrant pace of NYC but I still like it there.

If you want to get into Manhattan the PATH is right there. If you want to get to EWR the PATH/NJ Transit is right there. There are plenty of department stores, grocery stores and restaurants. A civilized place to live and very close to all the attractions of NYC. Lower state taxes too, I've heard.

The Waterfront is mostly rich and empty , but go inland about 6 blocks and you'll hit the Middle class section of Jersey City which is similar to NYC in terms of being vibrant.

There seems to be a big contrast between the waterfront and inland Jersey City. The disparity is huge, but I didn't find it to be "vibrant". I guess maybe it's just me
