I moved from downtown Jersey City, Hamilton Sq Pk area, 3 years ago up to Jersey City Heights. Close in terms of distance but a world apart compared to neighborhoods. So far during the course of the last 2 years and just on my immediate block, there has been: one fatal shooting, one murder/suicide (tbd), a spate of robberies, including my own house, and needless to say the usual drug dealers hanging around. I The Jersey City Police have a tough job and need to be supported, however even they turn a blind eye to small crimes. My neighbor had a bicycle stolen from her front porch. She has full video surveillance of her house. The tape captured the entire event in full color. Long story short when the police were presented with the tape showing who stole the bike, where he was working (he was a delivery guy leaving menus at the doorstep) they did nothing. More police presence is needed in the Heights.
