I have lived in Hudson County all my life. Though there are times where things are confusing or strange, it is a nice general area. It is too expensive but we manage to get by.
Diverse county with a lo of things to do, attractions to visit, and great restaurants to eat at and a lot of job opportunities near the city. Nightlife is great a lot of bars and clubs to go to. Affordable and close to NYC.
