If New York had to pick a 6th borough (or find a replacement for Staten Island if they ever secede), where would it be? A classic pick is Philadelphia, and more recently there's been CRAZY TALK of Cleveland, Ohio becoming a destination for priced-out New Yorkers. In fact, we received many personal messages from ex-New Yorkers living over there, singing its praises as the nation's "best kept secret."
Before Cleveland, there was talk of Jersey City, Atlanta, and even Yonkers as being contenders for the coveted title?they've all garnered press as the latest migration trend (as have the suburbs, and Kansas City). So, if we're going to extend a prestigious 6th Borough title upon one of them, which should it be?

Here are the results...

What city should be NYC's 6th Borough? (Poll Closed)

Philadelphia 20.7% (225 votes)


Jersey City 51.24% (557 votes)


Yonkers 16.65% (181 votes)


Cleveland 11.41% (124 votes)



Total Votes: 1,087


I think non JC residents also see JC as the 6th.


Hopefully before the honorable mayor leaves us he will pull a Booker and get us a Whole Foods. lol

Yes it is the 6th boro. Yes, it is also the 21eme arrondissement. Yes, that means it has two government jobs, so I guess underneath it all it is just New Jersey.

Tell me more about Staten Islands nightlife. Or nightlife in much of Queens, Brooklyn or Bronx. Or even nightlife in Inwood.

If Jersey City is NYC "6th Borough", having lived here for 6 years I would hazard it would come after Queens, but before the Bronx and Staten Island, in relative "coolness".

Everything within a certain radius of Manhattan is in it's orbit, and compared to it - JC is no exception.

I would think Hoboken would be Six and JC would be Seven?

Or maybe Weehawken can be Eight?

I feel West New York would be a better a candidate for Sixth Borough since it already has New York in the name. We know NYCers don't want anything with Jersey in the name having any association with their city.

AND, it's used by bar owners who have a sh*tty product but want to cash in on a short term trend.

Ugh, I've said it before and I'll say it again: the term "sixth borough" is used by people who have an inferiority complex about living in NJ and need to justify that Jersey City is cool enough to live to themselves and their friends.

I shudder every time I hear this name. That bar should be closed immediately. Are the owners really that oblivious that they've failed miserably??

Summer Dawn Hortillosa / The Jersey Journal



Is Jersey City really the "Sixth Borough?"
The city picked up the nickname for its proximity to New York City and its close relationship with its sister city. After all, thousands of Jersey City and Hudson County residents commute across the Hudson every day for business or pleasure, and the two cities have undeniably established constant cross-cultural exchange.

The name has even been taken up by a sports lounge and restaurant that took the place of Powerhouse Lounge on Marin Boulevard in March and the 6th Borough Market, which includes vintage goods, crafts, art, food and more and will be held monthly behind City Hall. (The market runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 18, June 22, July 20, August 10, Sept. 14 and Oct. 19.)
