Now, before you roll your eyes or think, "What, out of 15 cities?", no Mr. or Mrs. Cynic, Children's Health magazine voted Jersey City 13th best place to raise a family in the United States.
The magazine says they compared 29 quality of life variables in the areas of employment, health, housing, safety, education and family life. Jersey City was #1 in the Garden State and only Newark at #46 made the list from New Jersey. Burlington Vermont was the #1 ranked city.
In case you are wondering, New York City was #15. Put that in your pipe and smoke it Bloomberg, Jersey City is ranked higher!!
