Jersey City is only about 10 miles from where I live, but for some reason I hadn't got around to exploring it much until the summer of 2015. I remember going to college with a guy who grew up in Jersey City who used to tell me: "if someone likes your shoes, they'll shoot you and then take 'em." I know he was talking a lot of stuff, trying to sound like a tough guy, and from what I saw on my first bit of driving around in Jersey City, there were some areas where I wouldn't want to spend much time. But there's plenty of interesting street art, and in the downtown area, I think you'll find everyone still wearing their shoes, so I never had any concern about danger and enjoyed exploring the area.
