I live in Union City, NJ and I love my town! It's so close to Manhattan, but far enough away that you can enjoy peace and quiet when you want it. We have a hugely diverse population here, made up mostly of Central and South Americans with the largest group being Cubans.
Union City has the distinction of being (at least as of Census 2010) of being the MOST densely populated city in the United States!
I was born in Portugal, grew up in Vancouver, BC and then moved stateside. I lived in Harlem for a few years, and finally found my way here.
