I live in Paulus hook and really like the area. It's quiet and it's close to downtown at the same time. It also has good zoned school (I think? Don't quote me since I don't have kids). If you want to be close to action, downtown, waterfront, Paulus hook are all good neighborhoods. Newport is alright - a more too commercial to my likings

Good Indian food. But honestly I was bored as a single person. If you are married, things maybe different.

I grew up in JC, now live in Brooklyn. I’ve been considering potentially moving back, I would stick to the downtown areas (waterfront, Newport, grove street, Paulus hook, around van vorst park). There are some new luxury buildings coming up around journal square, but that area isn’t as nice and it’s deeper in JC
