I love living in North Bergen, It is close to everything and there are always different ways to get there- public transportation is widely used. It is 25 minutes away from NYC!

I would say North Bergen is pretty average, but not average in a good way. Average in the way as almost every place is in now in 2018. The commute sucks, its over populated. There is constant traffic everywhere, not just in my town but the entire county. Affordability and real estate market here to me is one priced for where we live. Especially because there aren't even that many job opportunities within this area to begin with. Overall its not the worse place to live, but definitely not the best. Average.
I lived in Jersey City for awhile and moved to North Bergen a few years ago. I love the area. I feel safer walking outside and not worrying about where I am . I enjoy the access I have to the city, and Hoboken. The area that I live is clean, and properties are being built around us making the city better. The 82nd street park is being renovated so I am excited to see how it will turn out. Overall, love living here!
