Jersey City, NJ Senior Living Resources

Seniors living in Jersey City enjoy day trips to historic Ellis Island, where they can learn about their family history. Stroll Liberty State Park for stunning views of the Manhattan skyline or take in concerts at the Jersey City Theater Center. A quick train ride on New Jersey Transit gets you either to Atlantic City or a Broadway show. With access to so many wonderful senior living experiences, it’s no wonder Jersey City is a popular destination for active seniors.
