Charming and unassuming neighborhood. We rented an apartment at the adjoining street (Ogden) and fell in love with the neighborhood. The park down the street has stunning views of the New York Skyline. And of course access to New York City is super fast, as it is to downtown JC and Hoboken. Below is an overview of some of our favorites in the neighborhood.

There are several ways to get to New York City from the apartment but the most convenient are by bus.
To Midtown Manhattan
The easiest way to Manhattan is by NJ Transit. There are two lines: Rt. 123 and 119. The bus stop for rt. 123 is directly outside the house at Palisade and South. The stop for route 119 is at Congress and Palisade Ave. You can wait at that corner and get whichever bus comes first. BUT, be aware the stop for route 119 is across the street on Palisade at Congress, while the 123 stop is on our side of Palisade. So you need to keep your eyes out and be ready to cross the street quickly if you do this!
The fare is $4.50, and you must have exact change. (Budget tip: if you take the route 119 and get on at the next stop at Paterson Plank Road at Congress the fare is only $3.50).
There is an apps called Citymapper that can make the process a lot easier. Enter where you’re going and it tells you the best route and the times of the next bus.
There are also a series of jitney’s that run on the same line. They cost only $2 but they’re often full and only run during rush hour.
To Downtown NYC
Two main ways to get to downtown Manhattan are:
1: Take the 87 Bus on Palisade ave. to EITHER the Journal Square PATH station or Hoboken PATH station.
Via Journal Square: To go to Journal Square this you will go outside, cross Palisade avenue, and wait at the bus stop across the street (by the Tortilla place). You’ll need $1.50. The Journal Square stop should be announced, you’ll only be on the bus for a few minutes. At Journal Square, look for signs for the PATH train. You’ll need to buy either a PATH card or Metrocard. Metrocard might be preferable as you can use it on the NYC subways as well. The fare is $2.50. Find a machine and buy a credit card, adding as much value as you think you’ll need. You can take the PATH to either World Trade Center (to go to the lower tip of Manhattan) or the 33rd street line which has stops through downtown New York around 6th Avenue.
Via Hoboken: You catch the 87 bus right outside our door on our side of the street. Get off at Hoboken which should be the final stop. The PATH station is right where the busses get off. Same PATH instructions as above.
Street parking is limited to two hours during the day and free after 5 pm during weekday. Weekend is free.
You need a permit to park on our streets for any longer than 2 hours between 8am-5pm during the week. Short term permits can be purchased for $5 a day at the Jersey City Parking Authority, at 394 Central Ave.
•As a courtesy I can usually arrange to buy the parking passes in advance if you agree to reimburse me. •
