Live in downtown and I’m very happy with it. Have gotten back at odd hours after a night out (from NY lol) and never felt unsafe. I also find it’s clean which is nice


Downtown near the waterfront near the Goldman building feels like FiDi and the Grove Street area is fun and safe as well. If you start to move out from those areas things can get sketchy, but it's more of matter of just knowing the pockets of bad neighborhoods (I live far away from downtown and I feel fine other than certain streets).


I live in weehaken and it’s super safe and quiet, Jersey city has some amazing lux apartments near the Hudson

I’ve always felt safe in downtown Jersey City taking regular precautions, always have to be aware of your surroundings no matter where you are. It’s a large city though, so it may depend on neighborhood.

How is the commute into the city?

I work in Hudson yards. The path takes 22 min to get from grove street to 33rd street. 8 min to wtc, so I’ve never found the path to be a problem

Anyone ever been in a bad accident with a taxi driver? My friend was in crash that went over median in tunnel and resulted in a bad concussion, doctor bills, etc. The driver apparently fled the scene but she has license no. She’s trying to figure out next steps to recovery some of her costs. Obviously lawyer/suit is one route. But I’m interested in practical experiences abt whether this was worth the time and money. Or if small claims court, going through city agency, etc. are options? Thanks!
