Welcome to Jersey City

Jersey City, located along the New Jersey Gold Coast is a melting pot, of people, of opportunities, of entertainment, of unique neighborhoods, interesting shops, delicious restaurants, and lush parks. It’s a city where you can live, work, and play all in once place—and all without ever setting foot in a car. Right outside your front door, the world awaits. Find grocery and convenience. Sample flavors from all over the world at endless restaurants. Find entertainment or excitement at theaters, at bars and pubs, at festivals in the streets, at any time of the day or night. Or just hop on the subway or the ferry to explore The Big Apple.

Though it’s located directly across the Hudson River from Lower Manhattan, Jersey City is a world of its own. It’s a central hub of business, entertainment, and residential living comprised of unique mixed-use neighborhoods, plenty of shopping and dining districts, and one of the largest downtown central business districts in the nation, where several major companies are headquartered.

But it’s so much more. It’s one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world. It’s fast-paced. It’s urban. It’s walkable. It’s home.
