I see you're from Atlanta. Have you ever been to New Jersey? Or Jersey City? Journal Square is a section of Jersey City (JC). It has a PATH station so it is quite convenient for commuting into NYC. It's a busy, diverse area. What sort of property did you have in mind? In Journal Square there is everything from 100 year old Victorian brownstones to 1920 Art Deco coop apartment buildings. I'd be able to help you better if I had a better idea of your area of interest. While I usually specialize in Hoboken, the next town over from JC, I have sold a number of properties in JC and know parts of the city quite well. It's a very large city and all the many neighborhoods within it (Paulus Hook, Newport, Pavonia, Hamilton Park, Van Vorst, Greenville, JC Heights) are very different.
Feel free to contact me if you'd like.
Thanks & hope this helps.
