Kennedy Boulevard. Journal Square is also a center of learning, with Saint Peter’s College less than a mile away from this site. An estimated 3,000 students are enrolled there. Within a ten minute walk north is the Hudson County Communtity College, where more than 6,000 are earning their degrees. Many office buildings and retail shops can also be found in the vicinity.

Jersey City, and specifically the Journal Square neighborhood, has been focusing on revitalizing the area, with hopes to attract more people who would like to purchase real estate here and take part in the culture and exciting advancements in the changing scene. Examples of some of the efforts are:

  • The Planning Division recently set long-term goal of redeveloping a 277-acre area in Jersey City, with much emphasis on Journal Square and the areas surrounding the Transportation Center.
  • In 1995 the Journal Square Restoration Corporation formed, consisting of business and have been funding area improvements via self-imposed tax levies and cooperation with the City of Jersey City ever since.
  • The Jersey City Economic Development Corporation has coordinated “A Vision for Revitalizing Journal Square” that outlines main goals, including the reinvigoration of the classic theaters in the area, as well as adopts plans to improve and redevelop the streets and buildings. Many of these projects are already underway or completed.

Considering all that Journal Square and Jersey City has to offer and its close proximity to Manhattan, the area will only continue to draw people to take part in both the culture and opportunity found here. This prime location could be yours!
