The City of Jersey City is proud to be the most diverse city in the state offering a unique place to live and visit within its 15-square-miles and 6 wards. The 265,000 residents make for an array of ethnicities and cultures.
Once a city driven by immigrants working in the shipping and manufacturing industries, Jersey City has transformed into a modern urban community. Old factories have been repurposed and reborn into office buildings, housing units and abandoned rail yards are now landscaped parks. Jersey City’s vibrant arts cultures and diversity, and commitment to collaboration create an unparalleled quality of life for residents and businesses alike.
