It's a pretty family-friendly town! The nightlife is lacking and for the most part, everything closes pretty early.
Review Bayonne
I was born and raised here. I love my family and the friends I have made over the years. There are several cute and fund businesses, such as Perk Up Cafe. I love that you could walk anywhere, since the city is only three miles long. There is access to NYC, which is a hugh bonus since I can now go there with my friends. However, the city is very over populated and there is very little parking. People oftentimes keep their head down if you walk by them. I would prefer that the townspeople are kinder and would smile more. I also believe that the houses are too close together and everyone is overlapping. I believe the education system needs some revamping, though I am beyond grateful for the education i received from Bayonne High School. I had phenomenal teachers and brilliant classmates. I hope that each time I visit my family here, something has improved.
Bayonne is a small town located in New Jersey state. It is actually close Jersey city. I have lived here for three years since I moved from jersey city. Bayonne is a nice city because it is small so, everything is close I do not have to drive long distance to do my shopping or to go to any office. There are few people living on it which makes it quiet. There are enough lots and parking where to park families'cars.Moreover, there are a good schools and daycare for children.The most important thing is the high safety provided by police department. The city of Bayonne is really cleaner than Jersey city, but still need to be more clean.
Even though Bayonne nice and quiet, but there are few things that needs to be updated such as jobs offers and high educations.
