Four (of Many) Reasons to Raise Your Family in Jersey City

March 7, 2018

In the New York Metropolitan Area, it can be difficult to find an apartment building that’s both luxurious and family-friendly. In most cases, spaces are either too small, or not designed with families in mind. At Lenox, it’s quite the opposite. Our spacious, open-layout, two- and three-bedroom residences and amenity spaces offer plenty of room for your children to play and grow, as well as space for you to enjoy some well-deserved “me time.”

But the physical space where you live is only half the battle in finding the perfect apartment for your family. The neighborhood and surrounding community are just as important when looking for a new place to call home. Paulus Hook and its surrounding neighborhoods have so much to offer families and children.

Here are four things that make raising a family in Jersey City a no-brainer:

Last weekend at Lenox, we hosted JC Super Saturday for Jersey City families featuring singalongs, story time, balloon and caricature artists, face painting, magic and juggling. Kids were dancing, singing and playing in our children’s’ room and enjoying life as a kid at Lenox.

Right in our neighborhood, we have two great parks, but the outdoor fun in Jersey City doesn’t stop there.

Right outside of Lenox is Morris Canal Park featuring a paved path where you and your little ones can enjoy a long walk in stroller, learn to ride a bike and walk the dog along the water. And as an added bonus, you can enjoy views of the marina, the Hudson River, the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline.

Van Vorst Park is a beautiful spot for picnics, tummy time and letting out extra energy on the playground. Plus, there’s a dog run for your furry friends – did we mention Lenox is pet-friendly?

Did you know that Paulus Hook has one of the best elementary schools in the area? Our location in Paulus Hook also offers convenient access to a number of private institutions in New Jersey and Manhattan.

Manhattan is not an easy place to raise a family. Apartments that are spacious enough for your growing family will cost you an arm and a leg, without all the great neighborhood perks that come with Paulus Hook. Compared to similar spaces in Manhattan, Lenox’s commodious homes and stacked amenities package are a bargain.

This is only the beginning of a very long list of reasons to start, grow or raise your family in Paulus Hook. For more information, contact our leasing team.
