Jersey City is one of the most densely populated cities in the United States, and continues to be not only one of the most diverse cities in the U.S. but also in the world. Jersey City has long been a destination for many immigrants to the New York metropolitan area, and boasts a diverse cultural heritage including significant communities from Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East. This diverse community, nestled amidst the largest metropolitan area in the United States, continues to make both Jersey City and many towns throughout Northern New Jersey ideal locations for refugees to start anew.
