Reading a JSON file from HTML or Javascript

Hi all! I'm trying to find a way to get my javascript file called mapsScript.js in my appserver/static folder to read a json file. The only thing is I've been putting my json file called buildings.json in multiple folders and even the same folder as my javascript file and it still will won't read it. Can someone tell me where I should put my json file, and what the best way to read it is. I've searched all over for another question like this or for a tutorial and I couldn't find one. Thanks!

var jsonObj = $.getJSON("buildings.json");
