When I was downtown, the stretch of Mercer starting at Barrow and continuing west was always a favorite spot (loved walking to the library). One of my favorite shots from a snow storm ~3 years ago on Mercer:

Now that I'm up in the Heights, there's so many cool pockets, it's hard to say an entire street. Sherman west of Summit is really awesome, as is the houses immediately around Sherman on Summit.

I've seen new trees planted directly on top of gas and sewer lines, and directly under power cables and other utility runs. I have no problem with new trees, just the zero consideration given to their type and placement.


Yes, the contractors the city hires are the worst. My pear would have had to come down anyway when I finally do sewer work since they planted it right on top of my sewer line. The trees around McNair haven't grown in 16 years and barely survive because the pits clearly weren't properly prepared. Those trees obviously can't get their roots to the very high Downtown water table, and are half wilted all the time.

I agree with the poster(s) that mentioned Jersey Ave with the iron gates and stoops. At time reminds me of certain streets in New Orleans


PSE&G is out butchering the trees along First Street today, so this stretch won't be pretty for much longer.

(Seriously, WHY do they have to prune this way? I understand they're somewhat constrained by the fact that most of the trees weren't properly pruned as they grew, so they're not in great shape to begin with, but the way they prune - the tuning fork and/or lopsided trim approach - is not only incredibly ugly but it both weakens the trees and makes the power line interference WORSE.

Making a big opening in the middle of a tree will cause it to quickly sprout new growth there, since that area suddenly gets a lot more sun with a lot less competition from other branches. So new branches will shoot back out toward the power lines, recreating the original problem within a couple of years. Except that now the quick-growth branches are weaker and thinner/more spindly than the original, slower-growing branches were, making them MORE prone to breaking off into the power lines during a storm.

tl;dr Within two years, branches in the trimmed areas have regrown around the power lines, but the new branches are weaker and more prone to breakage than the original ones were. How is that helping?!)

I looked at a few houses over there back in 2011, if this area had a closer light rail I would so be there. Every time I ride my bike through there I always stop to take it all in. Absolutely beautiful.

Those pears you admire are pretty for a few weeks, but they're terrible street trees, and JC parks and Forestry knows it. The workers explained to me as they cut down what was left of mine that they grow too spindly with too many branches without careful, constant pruning, and are way too prone to split with damage to home and cars. The pretty cherries are too low and wide, they brush the heads of pedestrians and don't grow high enough to be out of reach of tall trucks which will tear the branches off of any tree lower than 11'. It happened to my late pear and my maple a number of times. I don't know why they won't plant oaks, probably because people would complain about the acorns and squirrels. I've read that oaks support more biodiversity than any other tree.


Understood. I was just answering what my eyes like seeing.

Not defending the owners that don't replace fallen trees, but one reason trees aren't replaced is because it is seen as just another chore that needs to be done in the Fall when the leaves drop.

Also, as was mentioned, too many trees have fallen victim to new driveways.

Wow, you just tied the tree issue to the glorious illegal driveway thread! If the street is nothing but driveways, how can you have trees?

And then the city really screws the pooch planting terrible city trees like the ornamental pears and cherries. I despair.

As for blocks, I've been getting pretty partial to Reservoir between Palisade and Webster. It has the classic JC sublime next to tacky. The house on the left shows people once cared what things looked like, the one on the right proudly declares "NO ONE GIVES A SHIT!!"

wow that's a nice looking crib, the one on the right is awful. I really hate those CH Martin houses. We have a few up here that look silly as hell, stuffed between a few brownstones.

The house on the right was originally the driveway for the house on the left. The guy bought the property and wanted to knock down the beautiful house and build three houses. He had pressure from the neighbors. He compromised with taking away the driveway and large garage and built one home. He renovated the home on the left. He removed the trees and grass that were in the front yard and made a driveway. House is 4 units, one for each floor. The floor plans are U shaped because of the stairwell in the middle.


Great to know the story, thanks. Lots of places in JC weren't as lucky and have rows of these obscenities. Future generations will curse us for letting these be built for no other reason than greed on one side and simple minded resistance to an aesthetic code on the other. No Hoboken infill in the last 2 decades is this ugly.

Stevens Ave. west of Sterling Ave. (in Greenville) is another favorite of mine. Little 1920s-era row houses on a tree-lined street -- on both sides of the street.

There is a service road in back for deliveries and garbage collection; and parking.

Yes, there are some nice areas in JC even in Greenville.

Great pick, even when dtjc was a scary place that section always looked good. Classic.

Fulton Avenue between Bergen and the Boulevard (in bad old evil Greenville).

This is where I grew up.

It hasn't been a part of the rebirth of Jersey City (read "Downtown") but in the 1960s, it was pretty close to heaven. Large old beautiful brick houses, huge old London plane trees, and a new first rate public school.

It was Sinatra's neighborhood when he lived in Jersey City. He lived at Audubon Ave. and the Blvd.

Typical Fulton Ave. house today... (108 years old and not a sign of a crack.)

I live a few blocks away from this street those homes are gorgeous. Just recently one was purchased and turned back into a one family. My 2nd favorite street is Bentley ave, its a great street to walk down in mid October, absolutely stunning.

Fulton Avenue between Bergen and the Boulevard (in bad old evil Greenville).

This is where I grew up.

It hasn't been a part of the rebirth of Jersey City (read "Downtown") but in the 1960s, it was pretty close to heaven. Large old beautiful brick houses, huge old London plane trees, and a new first rate public school.

It was Sinatra's neighborhood when he lived in Jersey City. He lived at Audubon Ave. and the Blvd.

Typical Fulton Ave. house today... (108 years old and not a sign of a crack.)

Tough call. For me it's probably Belmont Ave from JFK down to Lincoln Park.

Ha, I have fond memories of this street. When my brother and I were kids my dad would drive us to Liberty State Park via Chapel. He referred to the bridge that led you to Caven Point (a green, rickety, old bridge that was replaced 10 years ago) as the "Goblin bridge" and would scare us every time we crossed it! Cool story bro, I know, just thought I'd share.


HA! that's what I love about it, most residents here won't walk down it much, its considered the spooky road.

I love it because its usually quite with just a few cars every now and again.. it leads me to LSP and Port Liberte. You can walk down this street for a good 10 minutes before you see another person. I was spooked out once, when I saw what looked like a wolf roaming the graves. :{ a road less traveled.
