Jersey City is Not Cool
I noticed this in Francis Hwang's Del.icio.us links.
My corporate apartment during my Oct-Nov stay in the NYC area was in Jersey City. I liked it. I had a five-minute walk to the PATH station every morning, which was nice. I didn't have do deal with driving a car anywhere. When I got home, I could stop at Newport Centre Mall for dinner. I preferred this lifestyle to the one I had back at home in Georgia.
The writer of the article says it's not "cool." Well, I gave up on "cool" about ten years ago. If I had to work in NYC (and I wouldn't really want to), Jersey City seems like a pretty good place to live.
