"Awesome place to hang out"

- summerdawn0608
Definitely one of the best places to go in Jersey City, if not the best. All your shopping needs can be met here--if not at Newport Centre Mall, then you have a ShopRite, BJ's Warehouse, Bed Bath and...

"Busy city street"

- smh1182
This is a busy highway during the day. There is so many cute places you can find off of Route 440! Hackensack Riverfront is a very cute town that is older and has been renovated. The housing is very n...

"A decent area but still has a long way to go!"

"Busy Highway during rush hour"

"Great place to live"

- jtkrikst
For being in the city, if you lived here you wouldnt think you were. Its very quiet and is probably about 90% residential. There are a lot more trees, which are nice in the city for scenery. Houses ar...

- pete101
