Jersey City vs. Hoboken


Since moving to Jersey City, I've learned that most local residents aren't fond of the neighboring town of Hoboken. Critics describe Hoboken as a post college town filled with mid-twenty year-old "pilate/yoga pants wearing, stroller mafia mommies - aka young stay at home mothers whose spouses work in the depths of Wall Street.

To be honest, Jersey City has the same stroller mafia in the neighborhoods of Paulus Hook, Van Vorst and Hamilton Park. However, I have yet to bump into a fresh out of college resident in Jersey City.
