  • Moving to Jersey City

    Jersey City is becoming increasingly affluent and the gentrification of the city is making moving to Jersey City popular not just with expats, as seen in the recent increases in the population. With New York City half an hour away, Jersey City can be a great place for budget-conscious expats.
  • Living in Jersey City

    Jersey City may lie in the shadow of its illustrious neighbor New York City, but it was still home to over 250,000 people in 2014, with its population currently on the rise. The city’s closeness to the Big Apple, with lower property prices and a thriving economy, makes it a popular place for expats.
  • Working in the USA

    Because of the country’s sheer possibilities, working in the USA may be an attractive option for you. Besides the dream of making it from rags to riches, there are many reasons for choosing the USA as your expat destination. The InterNations Guide tells you all you need to know, from working conditions to job-hunting.

All You Need for Your Jersey City Expat Experience

Jersey City, or "Wall Street West", is a lively and bustling American city right across the Hudson River from New York City, filled with culture, arts, and new experiences for expats. Whether you're an expat traveling alone or with your family, the city is sure to meet all of your needs. It's surrounded by world-famous attractions and the beautiful Hudson River, making it a modern, beautiful city set in a unique and changing landscape. The city skyline is one of the most recognized in the world, with the Statue of Liberty just a stone's throw away. Expats will soon find themselves wrapped up in American culture, meeting some of the world's friendliest people while enjoying traditional celebrations, such as fireworks on the Fourth of July, turkey and cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving, and disco fries from New Jersey diners. InterNations can help you adapt to this relocation, answering questions such as, "what are the best schools in New Jersey?" and "what's the cheapest form of public transportation to get around the city?".

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world.
