Be aware not all that shiny is gold

First of all I lived in Bayonne for over 20 years I consider it my hometown The truth that It would never be like Hoboken not today not tomorrow not in any day and the reason is if you want to get to New York you need at least two transportation it takes two hours to get there I don’t know why people lie about getting there in 30 minutes some of them‘s claim that you can get to New York from Bayonne in 15 to 20 minutes But I sure you that this claim is happened to be by the property owners that want to rent the properties or sell it for a high price if this lie continue the greedys will suffer a big loss in the future Plus the schools only few of them that great the rest it’s just a waste of time and as far as the property tax it’s the one of the highest amount all the cities in New Jersey People talking about development do they know that this development about to be built on a flooded area if we got hit again with another Sandy it will be devastating I bet this city in the future it’s going to witness the biggest foreclose and Bank Repsie in the history and that’s all because of the lie they have been feeding people through the social media and local news the city always raise The tax higher and the owners never speaks and the reason is because they support their lies

18Th street lofts

STAY AWAY FROM 9 E 18TH STREET! I was so excited to find this place. The lofts are absoultely beautiful for the price. I work in the city and I found the commute to be relatively easy. However, only after 30 days of moving in I felt extremely harassed and uncomfortable. The landlord is incredibly rude and condescending. I found another apartment immediately. After moving in I stored my boxes in the recycle area and was questioned about it. Then, the former tenant came by to retrieve mail...she heard us speaking and a few days later asked me if I had a roomate! Wow. Then...I locked myself out and she was livid that she had to open the door for again. I lived in a managed building in NYC for 7 years before living there and was always regarded as one of tbe best tenant. This landlord thougbt i was a fool...but she was mistaken. Don't let the ambiance fool you..unless yoh are over 50, retired, or don't minf tip toeing around your home, STAY AWAY. This place is absolute hell..especially if you are a private person. I have never felt so insulted in my life. Dont do it. These people are horrible.

Bayonne, NJ - Quiet Serenity in the Heart of Jersey

As a resident of NJ for over ten years I had the pleasure of visiting Bayonne, NJ several times. My last visit to Bayonne, NJ was for two days in late 2009. Throughout the years there have not been many changes to Bayonne, NJ which is quite refreshing as Bayonne is currently has always been a calm and relaxing place to visit.

The city of Bayonne is a great place to visit for a day trip. Speaking of longer trips, Bayonne may not have much to offer as it is a small and quiet community. There is some nightlife in Bayonne, restaurants are decent and the community is superb. Bayonne would truly make a great place to live above all else. Golf fans will be delighted to visit the Bayonne golf course which is an 18-hole regulation golf course suited for all skill levels.

Families can take a nice day trip to the Bayonne museum. A large stretch of the Hackensack Riverwalk is located in Bayonne and makes for some great exercise and a fun opportunity to view natural around the river. Fans of the nightlife should visit Sevefortyseven which is a very energetic and fun bar located in Bayonne.
