Top definition
A large city in northeastern New Jersey (Hudson County). Some view it as a slum, others view it as an average large urban area teeming with urban people. There are different districts: the Heights, Downtown, Journal Square, Westside, Greenville area, etc. Also known as Chilltown, JC, 201, Dirty Jersey, etc. One of the most diverse cities in the United States. Somewhat rough and coarse with words and actions, but the residents do not notice due to its frequency. And yes, it would be best to do what the Romans do when in Rome.

A northeastern NJ city that neighbors Manhattan, NY. Most of Jersey City smells like a bacon bomb, but it is cheaper than NYC and way more badass.
