The Neighborhood

Guests stay at their own risk. We are not responsible for any claims or concerns upon your stay. By booking, you accept full responsibility for yourself and belongings during the stay.

The neighborhood is very safe at all times both day and night. Full of families and children, 94 native languages are spoken here. There are vibrant selections of restaurants, boutiques, shops, and a seasonal farmers market. The subway is full day and night. Think of Jersey City as the best hidden village of Manhattan.

The World trade Center is a 10 min subway ride, The West Village is 15 minutes, Union Square and Chelsea are 20 minutes, and Midtown is 30 minutes by mass transit. TRIBECA is a 7 minute drive when there is no traffic.

Getting Around

Take the PATH to Manhattan, Hoboken or Newark or take the Ferry for a lovely crossing to Lower Manhattan. No PATH service to the WTC on weekends in 2014 due to rehabilitation work following Hurricane Sandy.

When traveling by air, you will want to book through Newark Liberty International Airport because of it's inexpensive and a 10 minute commute.

From Newark Airport (11 miles): take the Airtrain to Newark Penn. From Newark Penn, take the PATH to Grove Street. OR you can taxi directly for about $45.

From JFK Airport and LaGuardia Airport: Take a taxi to the 33rd street PATH station at 6th avenue (near MACEY's), take the PATH train to Grove Street. OR taxi directly to the apartment for more than $100.

From LaGuardia Airport: take combination bus/subway or taxi to the PATH station at 33rd street/6th avenue.
