Conveniently located off 1&9, the New Jersey Turnpike, and The Goethals Bridge, Elizabeth is a highly convenient city to live in New Jersey. It is part of Union County. It has excellent restaurants, nightlife, transportation options, and even schools. The school system spans from K thru 12. And if you're into food, nightlife, & shopping, Elizabeth definitely has it. You can find great Italian, Mexican, Colombian, Cuban, and Dominican
And several other restaurants that do not have websites. I have been to all of these places and more. A couple I have yet to visit but only heard good things. Check out Jersey Gardens Mall for a good deal.
Elizabeth also is a location for the Port Authority of NYNJ as Port Elizabeth is home to a container terminal responsible for billions of dollars of goods flowing into the country.
