Living in Hudson County
The bridges and tunnels connecting New Jersey to New York City have always had a lot of traffic flowing across the river, but now, it’s filled with moving trucks heading into New Jersey. This stretch of cities along the Hudson River—including Jersey City, Hoboken, and Weekhawken—has become an immensely popular destination for people in the New York City area looking for more space at more affordable prices, and yet still enjoying a vibrant metropolitan atmosphere. You’ll not only find the convenience of bigger supermarkets and other suburban amenities out here on New Jersey’s Gold Coast, but the food scene is superlative and the cultural offerings are destination-worthy, including a branch of France’s Centre Pompidou opening soon. The coastal towns are linked together by the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway, which offers pedestrians a panoramic view of the Manhattan skyline.
