Hello, I moved to the Heights - Ogden Avenue overlooking Hoboken and New York City in 1984 and have owned a two family house there ever since. I would be happy to give you a tour of the neighborhood and provide any additional information that would be helpful based on 25 years of experience living and owning property in the Heights. Just give me a call or send an email

I'm a resident of Jersey City Heights and yes, the east side closer to Hoboken is the better side. I'd stay clear of the west side though I'm sure there are nice parts over there. I live near the cliffs by the 9 th Street Lightrail Station. The area is quiet, less crowded, more residential with families and young professionals within a closer distance to PATH and the city. The average home prices run from 300K to 650K here but are far more affordable than what you'd find down the cliff in the Hoboken area. Like others the best part of living here is being close to Hoboken without having to pay Hoboken prices. Hope I was of some help.

Jersey City Heights, is what Brooklyn Heights was before the real estate boom that happened there. It has great parks, amazing views and is the perfect place to build your home with several charter schools. There's also a reservoir you can fish and kayak in a few days per week.

Let me help you find what you need!

i have lived in heights for 10 years the East Side is great because the Light rail is accessible from this end . West side has transportation but not that many options. If you need assistance feel free to contact me.

I closed on my 2 family house in Jan 09 on the west side. I am currently living in one of the units for the time being. I purchased on the west b/c it was more convenient for me and my wife since we both work in manhattan and dont like taking the path. The buses on JFK blvd that travel through the lincoln tunnel are great and very fast. In 2010, I will be purchasing another investment property in the area and will choose the west side. Homes are much cheaper on west and the area is developing. The east side is not really worth the prices in my opinion especially as an investment.
