Stephen Sterling at NJ.com takes a look at the top ten fastest growing cities in New Jersey.
New Jersey is in the midst of a dramatic population shift, the inverse of the outward sprawl that has dominated the state for the last several decades.
The large population swings mean parts of the state are seeing dramatic growth not seen in more than 20 years. Today, we take a look at what towns are seeing the starkest positive gains.
While there are some familiar cameos from towns on our list last year, the new data show significant population movement in other parts of the state, some that have upended municipal demographics entirely.
Jersey City is continuing its trend of aggressive growth. Its fast commute to New York City and bustling, unique downtown community has made it one of the most popular locations in the Garden State for years.
