Jersey City is the second most populous city in the U.S. state of New Jersey after Newark.[22] It is the seat of Hudson County as well as the county’s largest city.[23][24] As of 2015, the Census Bureau’s Population Estimates Program calculated that Jersey City’s population was 264,290,[16] with the largest population increase of any municipality in New Jersey since 2010,[25] an increase of about 6.7% from the 2010 United States Census, when the city’s population was at 247,597,[15][26] ranking the city the 75th largest in the nation.[27]

Part of the New York metropolitan area, Jersey City is bounded on the east by the Hudson River and Upper New York Bay and on the west by the Hackensack River and Newark Bay. A port of entry, with 21 miles (34 km) of waterfront[28] and significant rail connections, the city is an important transportation terminus and distribution and manufacturing center for the Port of New York and New Jersey. Financial and service industries as well as direct rapid transit access to Manhattan in New York City have played a prominent role in the redevelopment of the Jersey City waterfront and the creation of one of the nation’s largest downtown central business districts.

After a peak population of 316,715 measured in the 1930 Census, the city’s population saw a half-century-long decline to a low of 223,532 in the 1980 Census, but since then the city’s population has grown, with the 2010 population reflecting an increase of 7,542 (+3.1%) from the 240,055 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 11,518 (+5.0%) from the 228,537 counted in the 1990 Census.

20th and 21st centuries
Beginning in the 1980s, development of the waterfront in an area previously occupied by rail yards and factories helped to stir the beginnings of a renaissance for Jersey City. The rapid construction of numerous high-rise buildings increased the population and led to the development of the Exchange Place financial district, also known as ‘Wall Street West’, one of the largest banking centers in the United States. Large financial institutions such as UBS, Goldman Sachs, Chase Bank, Citibank, and Merrill Lynch occupy prominent buildings on the Jersey City waterfront, some of which are among the tallest buildings in New Jersey. Simultaneous to this building boom, the light-rail network was developed.[59] With 18,000,000 square feet (1,700,000 m2) of office space, it has the nation’s 12th largest downtown.[60]

In November 2015, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump made the claim that “thousands and thousands” of Muslims in Jersey City cheered as they watched the Twin Towers burn after their collapse during the September 11 terrorist attacks, and used the unsubstantiated allegation as justification for his proposal that certain mosques in the United States should be monitored by authorities.[61]

City Ordinance 13.097, passed in October 2013, requires employers with ten or more employees to offer up to five paid sick days a year. The bill impacts all businesses employing workers who work at least 80 hours a calendar year in Jersey City.

    Don’t let the flash fool you, this entire area was filthy and crime ridden (the only difference now.. the criminal wear suits). i was born and raised in Jersey City and i won’t live in that overpriced, overcrowded shithole of a place if you paid me. Show them the Greenville section, Lafayette, Duncan ave projects, the Heights, Ocean Ave, Monticello Ave, Armstrong and Garfield Ave. then let me know what you think.

    The downtown looks completely different than it did in the 70s, 80, and 1990s. What a transformation. I’ve never been any further than that area, and wonder what the rest of it looks like.
