Right across the Hudson River from notoriously expensive New York City, Jersey City rents average $5,500, according to the listing portal Rent.
You’ve heard people complain about the notoriously high costs of living in New York City and San Francisco. But guess what — there’s somewhere else in the US that’s more expensive to live in.
The title now goes to none other than Jersey City, located right across the Hudson River from Manhattan.
Yes. You heard that right.
Sometimes referred to as the invisible sixth borough of New York City, rent there now averages $5,500, according to a report by the listing portal, Rent.
To compare, last month, the average rental price in Manhattan topped $5,000 for the first time in Big Apple history.
