NJ suburbs bounce back as older millennials go for house and garden

August 2, 2018

A new report suggests suburban living in the metropolitan region may not be passé after all, although New Jersey’s urban counties are continuing to grow even faster than the suburbs.

The new Rutgers Regional Report released yesterday indicates a possible resurgence of interest in suburban living in the New York-New Jersey metro area, as population growth between 2016 and 2017 in the 27 suburban-ring counties around New York City and northeastern Jersey outpaced growth in the city and urban Essex, Hudson and Union counties in terms of the number of residents. As a percent of total population, the urban and suburban areas grew at the same rate — 0.2 percent.
