Jersey City is the most diverse city in New Jersey, and the second most diverse in the country.  Jersey City truly represents a melting pot of nations, ethnicities, and cultural traditions.  The City maintains it's celebrated reputation as America's "Golden Door," serving as a gateway for all walks of life fittingly nestled in the shadows of Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.  Linguistic diversity also sets Jersey City apart, with 75 different languages spoken in City schools.  Feel free to explore the variety of services available to meet the vast array of needs of our community.
