You can also go a bit further north (Fort Lee, Cliffside Park, etc) or an area like Lyndhurst which is a straight shot via bus/train. All much nicer than Union and cheaper than JC.

i live kind of close to there. if you’re trying to be in close proximity to the city, i think there are better options

Better options as in? It comes at a price too? I was looking at JC & Harrison but they are too expensive and having a car makes it more difficult

I grew up in Union. great little town but depending on your current lifestyle might not be the place to live in just yet. (ex: single, no kids and works in NYC)

Most probably couple of times a month mostly weekends (lets say 1 day a week on weekend)

You may eventually wanna move to Jersey City downtown or Hoboken for a few hundred bucks and much better life and commute

I am in Union City, the apartment is called Altessa

I recently received an offer from a new firm. I informed my managing partner ab it. He offered me slightly more $ to stay but still didn’t even come close to what I’d be making. I then gave him my 2 weeks notice and accepted the offer with the new firm. All amicable. I had 2 vacation days scheduled, which the firm knew about for months and happened to fall within my last 2 weeks. While out last week, they then told me to not worry ab coming back in and that I am terminated. Thoughts on this?
