Vibrant neighborhoods, plentiful eateries, boutiques, scenic parks, and an abundance of entertainment options are only a few of the reasons why so many choose to call Bayonne, New Jersey home.
Often referred to as “Peninsula City”, Bayonne is ideally situated on a 3-mile peninsula south of Jersey City and across from the northern part of Staten Island in Hudson County, NJ. The modest town of approximately 65,000 residents offers the best of both worlds with convenient access to New York City as well as a peaceful community separated from the hustle and bustle of big city life.
Many families and young professionals choose to live in Bayonne because of its proximity to New York City without the high cost of city living. Residents can get to NYC from Bayonne by one of the many public transportation options, including the NJ Transit bus, the Hudson Bergen Light Rail, the PATH train, or by ferry. Taxis and ride-sharing services are also available or you can use your own vehicle for a quick trip over the bridge.
Abundant Green Space
The city is home to more than 25 parks with countless activities and amenities for residents to enjoy including fishing, exercise areas, sports fields, dog parks, playgrounds, and trails. Dennis P. Collins Park offers a state-of-the-art skate park with a concrete skate course full of multiple rails, ramps, ledges, and walls.

Since Bayonne is surrounded by water on three sides, you can take advantage of waterfront views while outdoors.
A Reputable School District
When moving your family to a new city, one of the most important considerations is the strength of the academic institutions.

The city has 13 public schools, 11 of which are elementary schools that serve students through eighth grade, one middle school, and one high school.
The Vibrant Downtown
Perhaps what makes this city so desirable is its downtown area. Located on Broadway, the three-and-a-half-mile commercial strip is lined with restaurants and cafes, museums, boutiques and shops, and more. The food scene is reason enough to live here. The diverse restaurants along the strip satisfy every type of food craving. For those looking for a meatless munching, there are plenty of vegan and vegetarian restaurants. And since New Jerseyans love diners, the Broadway Diner, which boasts to have the world’s best pancakes, is, of course, a must-go.
For those looking to spend the day shopping, the Broadway Shopping District in the Bayonne Town Center has an impressive selection of clothing and shoe stores, antique shops, book stores, florists, and more.
