Our apartment suites have a very quick connection to NYC, but there are some attractions worth visiting right in Jersey City.

1. Liberty State Park

The park is a stone’s throw from our 70 Greene and Liberty Towers properties. The 36 acre park offers spectacular views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty. There are even coordinated outdoor activities for the more adventurous traveler, like Kayak Eco Tours of the Hudson River Estuary and bike rentals. The park also offers guided Segway tours. There are ample trails for running, jogging, or just taking a leisurely stroll.

More information: Liberty State Park

How to get there: By car – 8 min. (Free Parking!) By ferry – 18 min. On foot and Light Rail – 27 min.

2. Liberty Science Center

There are so many fun, educational exhibits in the science center. It’s a great place to spend the afternoon, especially if you’re visiting with children. The science center features an IMAX theatre, live animals, and many rotating hands-on exhibits.

3. Cruise to the State of Liberty

Most tourists board the cruise from New York’s Battery Park. Our apartment suites are closer to Liberty State Park, where there are fewer tourists and shorter lines! If this is your first visit to New York or you’ve never had the chance to visit the Statue of Liberty, this is a must-see. The Statue was a gift from France in 1886 – read the full history here . If you made an advance booking, you can climb to the top and look out from inside the crown.

How to get there: By car – 8 min. On foot – 37 min. On foot and Light Rail – 29 min.
