Growing up a few miles from Linden in Jersey City, I was thrilled when my job relocated me to this hidden gem. Despite what you hear about Jersey, it is an amazing place to work and raise a family. In a few minutes, you can be on the bridge into Staten Island or take the Lincoln Tunnel into Manhattan.
The greatest thing about living in Linden is your not living in New York. You can enjoy the best restaurants in the world, take part in never-ending nightlife, and slip over the bridge and be back in my safe community in no time at all. The best areas in Linden are all within a few miles, and being in the center of New Jersey, I'm literally a stone's throw to New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut.
Our community is packed with transients from all over the globe who love to watch out and care for one another. Shopping tends to be a little costly when raising a family, so we slip south to the Monmouth Mall and get the same merchandise for far less.
