JERSEY CITY'S HIDDEN GEM: THE SOCIABLE SOUTHSIDE
Jersey City's Southside neighborhoods are gaining recognition for their expansive parks, burgeoning local business scene, and a tight-knit community spirit that has been part of their DNA for decades.

When community leader Chris Perez invited us to take a tour of the community, we jumped at the chance to learn more about the area's past and meet a few of our neighbors who are influential in its flourishing atmosphere.
