On the off chance you missed today’s USA Today, we thought we’d point you to some big news on the front page of America’s paper: The model of America’s urban future, apparently, is Jersey City. The onetime industrial burg across the Hudson is “clean, green and growing,” USA Today says. It’s gaining residents, jobs, and office space, and it’s got plans for a “mix of loft-style residential condos and rental units, restaurants, clubs, galleries, theaters and artists’ spaces” in the so-called Powerhouse Arts District.

So Jersey City’s up-and-coming and a good place for artists. Who knew?
