Jersey City is not only a population location for a getaway, it's also packed with U.S history. From the late 1800s until the end of the second World War, Jersey City was the first destination for many immigrants entering into the US via the nearby Ellis Island. Many of these immigrants moved to New York City soon after their arrival, and this era was the beginning of the diverse New York - New Jersey areas.
As part of the New York Metropolitan Area, Jersey City is fenced by the Hudson River and the New York Bay. There are plenty of great things to do and amazing sights to see in Jersey City; plus the commute to Manhattan is easily done using the train services.
