About Jersey City, NJ


Jersey City is New Jersey’s second largest city, with nearly 250,000 inhabitants. It lies within the New York Metropolitan area, across the Hudson River from lower Manhattan. The Hackensack region of Jersey City was one of the earliest American settlements, and today Jersey City is home to many of the tristate area’s ports, manufacturing, and industrial centers—its Exchange Place financial district has been nicknamed “Wall Street West”. It is a popular place to live and work locally, but also for its closeness and accessibility to New York City.
