From Port Johnson and Robinson Circle on the east to the west side communities that lie along John F. Kennedy Avenue and the shores of Newark Bay, all of Bayonne's neighborhoods have excellent access to the seacoast, a wide variety of amenities, and public transportation. Many of Bayonne's residents work in nearby New York, easily reached by both ferry and the Bayonne Bridge that arches over New York Bay to Staten Island and the borough of Brooklyn. Many residents also commute to Newark for work. In fact, the average commute for Bayonne residents is about 30 minutes. This is not unusual for east coast cities.
