General Area in Jersey City>Question Details

Stripes924, Renter in Norwalk, CT

What is the journal square area like? Is it a safe neighborhood for a 20-something year old female?

Asked by Stripes924, Norwalk, CT Mon Feb 11, 2013

Thinking about renting in Jersey City for when I go back to school close to WTC. I've noticed rent in the journal square path area is much less than grove path area so I am a bit concerned the difference may be more than just the proximity to NYC.

Help the community by answering this question:


I think it is a safe area, and has great potential..

Hi Stripes,

All areas differ, however, how safe one feels in an area is truly individualized. Although I can provide you with statistics about an area only you can make the determination on how you feel while being there. My recommendation is while you are performing your search would be to visit your area of interest at different times day and night during the week as well as on weekends. Afterwards, in addition to the statistics you will have a better sense of the area(s) in question.

Good luck with your search and if you like my assistance I would be happy to help you find a place to call HOME!!!

You can reach me at 973.868.4034 or at

Best regards,
