Dixon Mills?

Asked by Amy, Hoboken, NJ Mon Jan 19, 2009

What are people's thoughts/experiences with Dixon Mills? I am looking to buy a 2br duplex and am trying to get as much information as possible. Is it a safe area? I currently live in Hoboken and love it here, but would love the investment and more space.

It's definitely safe enough. My wife and I are in our 40's and moved to that area (Wayne St. at Grove) from the East Village in mid-2007. We had a great experience - the quality of life far exceeded our expectations. (We didn't consider Hoboken because we wanted to stay away from the backwards-baseball-cap scene.) Personally, I would avoid Dixon Mills because of a certain lameness/sameness to its units, the college dorm vibe it exudes, and mostly, the fact that it's really not much of a bargain. There are a lot of cool spaces further out around Monmouth / 7th if you're dead set on 07302.

I ived in Jersey Cty for 5 years in the late 90's. I lived in Pavonia Newport. At the time Dixon Mills was at the outer fringes of the good part of the Jersey City water front. I too lived in Hoboken for a number of years and got out when the rents got out of hand and moved to JC. I actually liked the Jersey City water front better than Hoboken. Not as many young kids right out of College. With all the build up on the waterfront over the past 7 years I think JC is a good bet especially if you like the area. Dixon Miils is probably close enough to the water front to benefit from all the new construction.

The Dixon Mills project is a very nice complex. I know several people who bought there and are really happy. The building has unique lofty units and desirable amenities like a large fitness center and concierge.

As far as safety I recommend calling the Jersey City Police Department for a crime report in the area. They are best people to answer that question. Here is their information.


Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
