- City in New Jersey
Current Resident: I was born and raised in Jersey City! Jersey City is such a diverse community from the poorest to the richest, as well as, dirtiest and cleanest locations. All places have their up and downs! I love how everything is so close by. It is great that Hoboken and NYC is minutes away for night-life and delicious restaurants (BUT pricey!). The main change I would like JC to have is to become SAFER. Within time I feel as though Jersey City will become another NYC!

Current Resident: Since Mayor Ras Baraka has been in office, I have really noticed a change in scenery of the urban communities through his "Neighborhood Initiative". Neighborhood gardens and beautiful murals are being painted on otherwise abandoned buildings. These are murals that represent the community and also provide encouragement and confirmation that
dreams can become a reality. I really appreciate these additions to my community because without it one can be totally blinded and overwhelmed by a vision of defeat, filth or disrespect. I have taken many pictures. There are plenty more to go I am sure. This is the beginning to a renovated neighborhood which will in turn renovate the minds of its residents for the betterment of Newark. By changing minds for the better, we are increasing the odds that a member of a once under-represented community will positively make the world a better place!

Niche User: The Swedesboro-Logan township area is a great place to live. I have lived here my whole life, and the schools are fairly good as far as I saw and experienced. The atmosphere is great, not a whole lot of crime. I think I once saw a review somewhere that said the area is 25% lower in crime than the surrounding area. I haven't seen much of anything in terms of criminal activity.

Current Resident: I have lived in Fairton for three years with my mother. I moved out and moved to Vineland and three weeks ago, I just bought a house back in Fairton because I loved it so much. It is peaceful, friendly, and super private which is something I love. I love being surrounded by trees and land.
