Local Reviews

Unique is the people so friendly most are family favorite place would be burgerline ave shopping is convenient and the Piers where I. Like going with family and friends

The best part I love about living in my neighborhood is being able to walk literally to anything. Restaurants are you sure park are awesome steps away. Transit transportation. Also walking distance. If you go into New York and I want to drive

It's close to lots of different types of businesses, I like that I can visit different coffee shops. I like Dunkin' Donuts, CVS, and a vegan restaurant.

The view of the NYC skyline is the best thing about living here and the reason for the expensive rent. I do enjoy walking my dog near the waterfront (Hudson River) and there are several retailers within walking distance for groceries, liquor, desserts, restuarants, and services.

Shops and restaurants also the store and supermarkets near me we have a lots of pharmacies around the neighborhood

It is very quiet in my neighborhood and at night I can go out on my lawn and see all the stars. There are lots of birds to see and a creek runs through my property.

Living in West New York, NJ

West New York was mostly a community of Dutch farmers until a tunnel was built in the 1800s connecting the neighborhood to other places in the greater New York area. Down the road, the George Washington Bridge, Lincoln and Holland tunnels, and the railroad brought in a large influx of immigrants after the Civil War, lending to the diverse community that is seen in West New York today. Although the community had been active for many years, the city was not made official until 1898. Today, West New York is a growing community that still gives a nod to its industrial past, but looks forward to what the future holds. According to information from the U.S. Census Bureau's 2011 estimates, the city is home to more than 50,000 residents.
