Let me tell u something you are completely wrong about union city...union city has alot of good schools n programs roads have been remade n there is alot of parks for children...crime is not high at all...every single city in this world has it's bad n it's good...only thing I can say is the pay rate should be better...have u ever really step foot in these cities...highly doubt it...i live in union city nj n guess wat...every single city has it's corruption it's drama crime n stuff...but at least union city has been making strides to look better...but wat union city needs to do is fire certain individuals like the director of the parks department Alicia...n I can care less if the [email protected]*king B+ch sees this...

I've lived in Union City most of my life and yes, the area has deteriorated somewhat due to lower incomes and the economic downfall of NJ but I still love it here.

It has a low crime rate, NYC is around the corner, Hoboken is down the street, everything you need is close. The Meadowlands, theatres, malls and it's a hard working community for those who can find jobs. There are much, much worse cities you wouldn't set foot in not mentioned here.
