Jersey City lies just across the Hudson River from Lower Manhattan, making it one of the closest New Jersey cities to New York. As such, it is commonly considered to be a bedroom community for Manhattan commuters. Jersey City has 11 miles of waterfront, and many railway connections; the city serves as an important shipping and transportation hub. The Jersey City area is also home to several reputable coin shops offering rare coins and precious metal bullion.
