A thriving community in its own right, Jersey City has long enjoyed popularity as a commuter town for folks who want to be close to Manhattan without paying Manhattan prices. Journal Square is the center of the action, serving as the central business district as well as the hub for major transportation options.

Closer to the Hudson River, areas like Historic Downtown and the Powerhouse Arts District are where you’ll want to spend your off-hours, with a wide array of restaurants, nightclubs, bars, galleries, and music venues, plus the nearby Newport Centre shopping mall. On the east side of town, you’ll be able to enjoy stunning views of the Manhattan skyline every day, and Liberty State Park on the southeast corner provides the closest look you can get of the Statue of Liberty without hopping onto a ferry (you can even walk to Ellis Island via foot bridge).

Considering how close you are to Manhattan, rentals in Jersey City are shockingly affordable, with apartments often going for as little as $600 per month or less, and multi-bedroom rental houses for as little as $1200.
