Weehawken’s neighborhoods can be divided into two choices: Live up high on the Palisades or directly on the waterfront below, with either option offering splendid vistas of the Hudson River and the Manhattan skyline. There are plenty of housing possibilities as well, ranging from pretty Victorians and Tudors to newer condominium developments. But you won’t find any high-rises here; to preserve its views, Weehawken city planning limits super-tall towers. The city has a more residential vibe than its neighbors Jersey City and Hoboken, yet it offers the same easy commute into Manhattan. Weehawkenites can drive through the Lincoln Tunnel or take the ferry from one of two stops and arrive in Manhattan in less than ten minutes, or alternatively, take a bus, or the PATH train (via the Hudson-Bergen light rail) into the city.

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.
