Jersey City Gay Neighborhoods
Those who don’t want to live in Manhattan or can’t afford the incredibly high rent in the city may instead want to live in Jersey City. While it’s in New Jersey, it’s considered a part of the New York metro area. Everything in Manhattan and other parts of New York City is accessible from Jersey City via the city’s mass transit system, so you have everything the Big Apple has to offer without the crowds or the high cost of living.
That’s not to say that Jersey City is a small town. With almost 250,000 residents, it’s definitely a good size. It’s home to Port Jersey, a busy port for many ships. The city also features a number of landmarks and museums, plus there are events such as monthly Shakespeare productions that are routinely held throughout the year.
Jersey City has been called the Queerest City in America by The Advocate, and it’s always scored highly on the HRC Municipal Equality Index. In fact, it often scores a perfect 100. Because of this, the entire city is something of a gay neighborhood. LGBTQ people are spread out all across Jersey City, and you’ll always be greeted with a smile no matter where you go.
Condos in Jersey City begin at around $100,000 and reach up to $2.5 million. Single-family homes range from $120,000 to $4.5 million.
