Jersey City, New Jersey's second-largest city, sits directly across the Hudson River from Manhattan (second only to Newark).
It's been called one of the nation's most ethnically diverse cities, and it's undergone a decade-long transformation thanks to a flood of new inhabitants priced out of New York City and Brooklyn.
As a result, several new and wonderful restaurants and pubs have opened.
In 2018, it was announced that a satellite campus of Paris' Centre Pompidou library would open here in 2024.
You can read about Jersey City's metamorphosis, but you can't come and see it for yourself.
Uber and Lyft can get you where public transportation can't.
Just don't call JC a New York suburb or the sixth borough; proud Jerseyans won't appreciate it.
