When you see an article like this, you know it is referring to Downtown JC, not all of JC, and DTJC is very liveable - on par with many neighborhoods in Manhattan and the more established, prime areas of Brooklyn. Given so many people on this forum are downtowners I'm surprised at the negative reaction - if I lived downtown, I would be thrilled.

I'm surprised that the relative inaccessibility, crime, grime, and paucity of amenities of the rest of JC didn't bring the overall average down - that must say something about the strength of downtown!


Sounds like a book review for "A Tale of Two Cities".

I love DTJC as it is where I live. However, i'd like to see the study methodology, parameters and data. It is hard to believe that a small gritty city like JC can beat out other nice urban US cities.

Not as far-fetched as it sounds.

Every time an article like this gets published, another JC condo breaks ground.

Guess "livable" correlates highly to cost of living. Most of those are the most expensive places to live in the country.

Almost as useless a "study" as those pushed by WalletHub.

The Most Livable Cities in the U.S.

SMART ASSET - Derek Miller Oct 25, 2016

City dwellers can get pretty riled up when extolling the virtues of their chosen city. Just try talking to any New Yorker. But have you ever wondered how your city compares to others in practical factors like housing costs, crime and walkability? In other words, which cities in the United States are the most livable? We at SmartAsset were curious so we ran the numbers on 93 of the biggest cities in the country. Read on to see what we found out.

2016 most livable cities 2 map 1 The Most Livable Cities in the U.S.

1. Jersey City, New Jersey

Jersey City snagged the title as the most livable city in the United States. Of the 93 cities in our study, it has the third-highest population density, third-highest income after housing and is fourth in walkability. Because of the city’s proximity to New York, a person living there can easily work in Manhattan (where the jobs tend to be higher paying), while enjoying the lower living costs associated with Jersey City. Jersey City residents have $35,452 on average to play with after housing costs.
