6 Reasons to Live on the Gold Coast of New Jersey

Life is good on the Gold Coast of New Jersey! Located directly across the Hudson River from Manhattan, the Gold Coast enjoys breathtaking Big Apple views, plus easy access via public transportation to an endless hub of entertainment and opportunity. But that’s hardly all this spectacular area has to offer! Here are six (more) reasons to live on the Gold Coast.

There’s a variety of towns and cities

Some of the most well-known cities of the “Left Bank” include trendy Hoboken and happening Jersey City, but there’s actually a lot more here than these two more urban-feeling communities. In fact, smaller communities like Bayonne enjoy a quieter, more laid-back vibe reminiscent of small-town America.

You don’t have to cross the river to find fun

There’s always something happening on the Gold Coast—a cultural celebration, a holiday festival, an art show, a farmer’s market, concerts in the park—so you don’t have to head to Manhattan to find fun. The area is booming with shopping, dining, and other businesses, from local shops and eateries to big-name department stores, and more. And best of all, you don’t have to battle the crowds to enjoy them!

It’s walkable & convenient

One of the biggest draws to living in NYC is its walkability and car-free lifestyle. Good news: the Gold Coast is headed in that same direction! New communities and commercial developments are being planned and built in convenient locations to facilitate a walkable lifestyle, and public transit is pretty well established throughout the area.

It’s way more affordable

One of the biggest downsides to living in Manhattan is the price tag that comes along with it. But turn your gaze across the river to the Gold Coast, and you’ll find that the price of homes for sale is much more reasonable. You can live that upscale, walkable, and fun urban lifestyle… without paying an arm and a leg (or settling for a tiny studio) to do it.

There are lots of new developments

If you’ve got your sights set on an urban high-rise luxury lifestyle with a view, then the Gold Coast has more than a few things to offer you. Rising prices in Manhattan have skyrocketed demand on this side of the river, and developers have responded. All throughout the area, beautiful new condos and communities are being developed, many transforming tired old businesses or warehouses into sleek and trendy modern developments.

Port Liberte is here!

One of the best reasons (we think) to choose the Gold Coast is Port Liberte. This gorgeous new-and-resale condo community is a world onto itself—one filled with outstanding amenities for a truly unique and unrivaled lifestyle. Located on the Hudson River shoreline just south of Liberty State Park in Bayonne, Port Liberte is surrounded by possibility and utterly filled with gorgeous homes.

On-site shopping, dining, services, and public transportation make life easy and convenient, while amenities like a fitness center, parks, pools, and sports courts provide plenty of ways to get outside and get active. But perhaps best of all is Port Liberte’s luxurious design of scenic pathways and canals that call to mind an idyllic Venetian cityscape.
