Saint Peter’s University students get to experience the best of Jersey City and New York – two of the world’s most amazing, energetic, and sophisticated cities. SmartAsset recently rated Jersey City as the most livable city in the United States. Jersey City residents have an advantage in landing better jobs and earning higher incomes due to their proximity to Manhattan, but pay considerably less for housing than their neighbors in NYC!
