Why Jersey City

(Jersey City Street Art)

A Move in the Making

Living in the suburbs of Montclair, NJ was not a decision I made willingly. It was a sacrifice because I wanted my kids to have an excellent public school education. My daily commute into NYC took an 1.5 hours, and sometimes longer, depending on the delays of New Jersey Transit. To make my commute shorter and get back to the city life that resides in my bones, I made plans to move back to NYC after my youngest graduated from high school.

My plans were sidetracked because I wasn't ready to purchase a home and the rent in NYC was astronomical. I then had to figure out how to get out of the suburbs and move as close to NYC as possible.

The Hunt for Natural Talent in Jersey City

One of the things that attracted me to Jersey City is the art & culture scene. From the outside looking in, I was certain that I would have found open mic venues throughout the city within the first week. However, I quickly learned that I really needed to tap into the underground entertainment scene to find my favorite pastime.
