The Huffington Post names Jersey City one of America’s Top -Ten Green Cities.
Surprised? A new NerdWallet.com study shows that those seeking green options have plenty to choose from. They gathered statistics from the 150 largest cities in America to determine which are the most environmentally friendly. The analysis was based on environmental quality, methods of transportation, sources of energy and housing density.
Cities you might expect, like Seattle and Honolulu make the list, but so do New York, Washington, and Miami.
The city shares a mediocre Air Quality Index with its neighbor New York City. However, Jersey City also shares a positive trend: residents use public transit at far above-average rates. At least 46% of workers living in Jersey City commute on public transit, second only to New York City’s 56%.
