I was born and raised in Bayonne and I purchased a home here 7 years ago. I and my friends have decided to raise our children here because it is a great town and strong community. Location and price wise its a perfect solution for growing families that need more space but still need to get into NYC quickly.... more
I wonder what the experience was that left her feeling Bayonne was trash? Like anywhere one might live there are always going to be positive and negative experiences. Bayonne like many towns in the area is slowly transforming into a different type of place to live. When you think of places like Down Town Jersey City, you can think back 20 years ago and know that this area was dead. Now when you look at Downtown Jersey City you can see the transformation. It all really began to steam roll down there when Newport Mall was built.
Bayonne looks to have begin this transformation by adding more shopping along Rt. 440, no different than what began in Downtown Jersey City so many years ago. Bayonne is an alternative to the expensive living that now exists in areas like Down Town, Hoboken and many other places along the water front.
In my opinion it is inevitable with time that Bayonne as well will become a lot like the fore mentioned areas. Bayonne already has some great things in place such as Hudson County Park, 16th St., some Marina operations, more shopping choices then in the past with some of the bigger retailers. When you look at the over all picture it is one of the last waterfront communities to New York that is beginning to transform into what you see in places such as Hoboken but will have and maintain a more family atmosphere due to its large base of single family and two family homes.
Just some food for though and a personal opinion but many times the transformation of a town has begun long before anyone really notices the changes.... more
