Jersey City Neighborhoods. What Our Customers Say

jersey city

The second largest community in New Jersey, Jersey City is an important port and one of the country’s biggest banking and finance centers, a distinction that’s led to the nickname “Wall Street West.”

Incorporated in 1838, this diverse city is sometimes called the “sixth borough” of New York thanks to its proximity to Manhattan. Notable people from Jersey City include Martha Stewart, Nathan Lane and Frank Sinatra, who lived in Jersey City for a time.

Some of Jersey City’s more notable neighborhoods include:

Journal Square

This section of the city takes its name from the Jersey Journal newspaper, whose headquarters were based here for nearly 100 years.

It’s a business district, residential area and transit hub centered around Kennedy Boulevard and Bergen Avenue but extending out to the sections of Bergen Square, McGinley Square, India Square and the Five Corners. Many state and government agencies maintain local offices in this part of the city.


This section of the city borders Liberty State Park and Downtown to the east and the West Side neighborhood to the west.

Once the home of the Jersey City Medical Center, this Art Deco marvel has been converted into residential complexes known as the Beacon.

Bergen-Lafayette is also home to Berry Lane Park, the city’s largest municipal park, completed in 2016 at the cost of $38 million.

McGinley Square

This section of the city is named for Monsignor Roger McGinley, who built St. Aldeans Church. Several landmarks, including the Jersey City Armory, the Jersey City YMCA, Hudson Catholic Regional High School and St. Mark Coptic Orthodox Church are all close by.

There are also several community organizations active in this part of the city, including the non-profit Bergen Communities United and the Highland Avenue Block Association, which advocates on behalf of residents.
