What’s Jersey city like? I’m from the south

Jersey city is really cool! It’s got great food, it’s really diverse, lots to do, and it’s super close to the city with loads if transit options.

Also San José would be like maybe asbury park

I’d say you’re close. Although a lot of affluent people live in San Jose; meanwhile housing situation in JC is total dumpsters. I have heard from several people how poorly maintained their apartments were including rat and roach infestation. 😷

….my apartment is actually beautiful….
