Settling into a new neighborhood can be a challenge, especially if you don't know anyone in town. This is exactly what happened to me when I moved to Jersey City in August 2015.
Since moving in, I made sure to keep my eyes peeled for events, social gatherings and networking opportunities. In November, I came across a poster in the main lobby of my apartment building. It was a neighborhood meeting hosted by the Powerhouse Arts District Neighborhood Association, PADNA JC.
PADNA gave residents the skinny of what was taking place in the neighborhood and what buildings were going up and coming down in Jersey City's real estate market.
