Corporate Relocation to NYC: 3 Reasons to Consider New Jersey

Whether you’re relocating to New York City or here for an extended stay, living in Jersey City or Hoboken may not have crossed your mind. Here’s why temporary housing in NJ is worth your consideration:

1. Quick Commute to Manhattan

The PATH train is convenient and a few stations can get you into Manhattan in less than 20 minutes. Yes, that’s even quicker than commuting from parts of Brooklyn! Look for temporary corporate apartments in NJ that are walking distance to the PATH train and your daily route should be a breeze. For fare and route information, visit PATH’s official website.

2. Budget Friendly & More Spacious

Relocating with your family can incur many expenses. We understand the dread of finding a Manhattan corporate apartment that fits the needs of your family and budget. To alleviate the apprehension, providers often have a reservations team that can assist with placement. It’s not always the case, but typically in Jersey City/Hoboken you’ll get more for less—roomier apartments with larger kitchens for less cost. Expect to save on grocery visits, movie theater outings and others expenses associated with city living.

3. Great Family Community

After a long work week in the bustling Big Apple, enjoy the slower paced streets in New Jersey with your family. There is still plenty of shops, dining and entertainment in the area. Liberty State Park provides beautiful views of the Manhattan skyline and plenty of grassy spots perfect for a picnic. In chilly seasons, Liberty Science Center is fun and educational for all ages. JCFamilies, “Jersey City’s Largest Family Community”, is a fantastic resource if you’re looking for activities with your young ones and provides recommendations for pediatricians, dentists, extracurricular activities and so forth.
