Thanks! Yeah jersey city seems like a parking nightmare anyway & those rents are like NYC 😩. I’ll check those other places out.

I have family living in jersey city. Worth considering but I wouldn’t recommend it. every year we have news of some shootings and killings.

Couldn’t be any different than Brooklyn or the Bronx. But thanks for that heads up.

Then you’ll feel at home. Welcome to our garden state. You’ll most likely be working and commuting to New York City. Therefore it makes no sense to live farther south like Middletown or east like Somerville. Too much of a commute for people working in the city.

I want to be close to the city. I don’t want to be in traffic longer than I have to.

all cities have crime. This isn't going to affect 99% of people living there.

Places where people go to get high and drugs are sold makes it likely for anyone living nearby to be a target sooner or later. Misdemeanors and petty crimes compared to grand theft auto and killings is a big difference in my book.

What? Just because people are buying and selling drugs doesn't automatically mean you're in danger.

These statistics are not high for any city. Stop fear mongering.
