Jersey City & New York City?

Is Jersey City a part of New York city, and since when?? I've been hearing people say that they're from Jersey City in New York city
Update: ughh excuse me bryan_q i know that Jersey City is in New Jersey, trust me I live in NJ and I know. I just asked why people say that they're from NYC, while they are in Jersey city so calm down.
