Single? Move to Edgewater!
Here’s a silly list of the best places to live if you want to find the “Rich and Single” from CNN Money. Nearby neighbor of Hoboken – Edgewater, NJ comes in at number #4.
Median family income: $105,830
“Affluent Manhattan professionals make their nests in the million-dollar townhouses that line New Jersey’s “Gold Coast.” Flirt with your neighbors in the organic produce aisle of the local Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s. Or tone your muscles and expand your social circle at one of the borough’s fitness centers. Hold hands as you gaze at the breathtaking Manhattan skyline. Or take a five-minute ferry ride across the Hudson River for all the nightlife New York City has to offer.”
Rounding out the top three were – Coronado, CA, Arlington, VA and Hermosa Beach, CA.
Other NJ cities to make the top 25 were: Madison, Montclair and Rutherford (Really?)
Why not Hoboken?
Why do you think our beloved mile square city didn’t make the list? Some suggested responses might be…
- “Have you seen all the strollers?”
- “We would have if it weren’t for that tax increase!”
- “The Real Estate prices leave little left for wining and dining!”
Well – I’m going to put the list to the test one day – although I’m a frequent customer at Trader Joe’s – and didn’t even think once to hit on a woman there – slim pickings. Any good singles bars in Edgewater? (That are not primarily restaurants?) Some place with a good sized bar, etc.
