Crime rate is definitely higher than the neighboring towns. Depending on what ur looking for, I would look into weehawken or Hoboken

Gotcha, thank you!

Why? I’m in north Jersey BTW.

Looking at around 500k plus or minus

Been there almost 2 years now. Never felt unsafe. But I’m right on park avenue which is the border between union city and weehawken. A lot of relatively new condominiums have been developed there. Only negative about the commute is the Lincoln tunnel traffic.

How is the crowd there? In terms of age and races

I think it’s the kind of place you’re fine during the day but should be careful at night. There’s been an increase in gang activity in neighboring towns, not sure about union city specifically. Also like everyone there is Hispanic so if you don’t speak Spanish, it might not be the town for you

Yeah dont speak Spanish, thank you for the insights!

If you decide to purchase a home in NJ check out city-data.com it will give you the stats about that specific town/city.

Thanks! This is great
