About Uptown Crew

It all started in 2005 when my shift from corporate worker bee to self-employed met an uptick in the explosive Jersey City real estate market. The building where I lived in Harsimus Cove downtown was sold just as my income decreased by two-thirds. I found a great space in McGinley Square and opted for the uptown life.

This is a big city - Jersey City's 15 square miles stretch from the Bayonne border to the Hackensack River to the Hoboken and Union City lines to the western shores of the lower Hudson River and New York Harbor.

I realized that my view of Jersey City was pretty provincial.. So, I started walking. I rode my bike. I took the bus, the PATH, the Light Rail. I found great stores, wonderful people and the spirit of the ages in the hills and parks and neighborhoods all over town.

Started as a community builder for uptown Jersey City residents, our Facebook group grew quickly, interest blossomed from all directions and this website was born.

We welcome you to visit, shop, attend events, and meet the people who pump a lot of life into our fair Jersey City.
