Downtown - Jersey City
I grew up in this area and I'm very familiar with different surrounding towns. I've lived in Union City, Weehawken, West New York, Hoboken and Jersey City Heights!
When working with a realtor and deciding upon an area where you'll be laying down your roots you'll want to explore the neighborhood by visiting at different hours, shopping or eating like a local and using transportation like a local.
I always recommend that my buyers contact the local police stations to any town they aren't sure about. You can simply let them know that you're looking to move and you'd like to know about the safety of the general area. Any problematic areas that you should know about? Is it safe for a woman to walk alone at night?
They are obviously objective and will give you some insight.
Hope this helps.

I am not sure what area you are referring to, but just as well, because as Realtors we are not to make any such judgments or statements.
What I can tell you though, is that you can call the local police department and ask how many times in a recent period they were called to the area for various reasons, or even called to the very block or address.
You can also find city crime stats info online at city-data.com
Good luck on your search for a new home and let me know if you need help.
