Having lived in West New York for thirty years and having worked in Union City for many of those, I certainly can't argue with this assessment.

Overpopulation is one of many problems plaguing the area. There is also so much corruption.

I left many years ago and was so happy to do so.

If he had added a corruption metric, West New York would be #1. But we can't be first in anything.
