Call it JC, the Sixth Borough or Chilltown, the trajectory of Jersey City and its real estate market in the last three decades has been nothing short of spectacular. And it makes perfect sense. Minutes to Manhattan via four PATH trains, spectacular architecture, and a home for just about every budget have brought thousands of new residence to our city. Add a sometimes glittering, sometimes edgy urban vibe, the most diverse population in the country, and a vibrant arts scene, and you've got a city worth noticing.
