What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About The Beacon Jersey City

Great restaurants, great sense of community, easy access to public transit. Overall, it's a great safe neighborhood!

Go to the shoppingmall shopping movie theaters bowling alley close buy many different resturants and bars n parks

If there is anything unique in my neighborhood, I don;t know about it. Just small stores, barber shops, grocery stores etc.

I like going to the movies and the mall with friends and family. My favorite place to get food is the local corner store deli. We have a park right across the street.

The mall, grove street, Hoboken, and the movies. New York City, porta ( pizza restaurant), and my house.

The piece and quiet. Throwing parties for the while whole neighborhood. Every holiday just being happy
