In the surrounding areas I recommend looking at the waterfront or near waterfront area stretching from Weehawken to Fort Lee. You'll be able to commute in if you need to especially via ferry, but shopping is much easier and the amount of thuggery drops off dramatically once you get above where the train service ends above that last light rail stop. A significant advantage to that area is that there's a lot more ways to get out of the region and break out of the traffic especially once you get north of where the cliff limits east/west traffic.Not entirely sure whether to stick it out with my family here (ride-or-die) or move solo to a saner place. Could definitely use some advice on this, as the fam has made it clear that they’re not going anywhere.
So what’s left? (((Wall Street))), (((The Media))), and (((Jews))). Some of the highest income taxes and property taxes in the nation. And hints being dropped of a second wave (and therefore, a second lockdown) as “inevitable”. And lastly, a $9 Billion dollar budget deficit with no solution in sight.
In summary, it’s bad.
