Descrizione

This sunny 3 bedroom home has a warm and inviting feel, is 20-30 minutes from midtown New York City via bus that stops outside the home. The house has it's own entrance and there is no sharing.

We love this house and think you will too!

We bought this home to live in and had to move due to schooling issues. But we still consider it our home. The feel of the home is bright and inviting with lovely details. Access to the deck and yard make it a great place to wonder. NYC skyline views from two of the 2nd floor bedrooms. Spacious 3rd bedroom with a desk.

This is a full home with its own entrance. You have access to a deck and a cute backyard (shared with a downstairs renter).

We live in Princeton NJ about an hour away so not much interaction besides online. But we have an in depth guide book for the area and are available if any questions come up. We have a caretaker who cleans and helps with transition and can help with smaller home issues.

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.

Laundry
We don’t have laundry in the building, but there’s a laundromat caddy corner from the apartment (as far as I can tell, its only name is “Laundromat.” You can either do your own or drop off for service, there prices are reasonable.


Groceries
Supermarkets
Supremo Food Market, which is 5 blocks down Palisade ave. Take a left coming out of the apartment and it’s on your right. Good supermarket with products geared to local Latino residents. Fresh meat and vegetables, really good prices. Nice bakery. There is a small parking lot across the street from the store.

StopNShop: Central Ave and Manhattan ave.

ShopRite in Hoboken, which is within walking distance if you take the elevator down to Hoboken (instructions in Travel/Transit section), go straight on 9th street, left on Madison.

Liquor Stores
Lee’s Liquors. 45 Congress and New York Avenue. Decent selection of beers and surprisingly good wine selection.

Palisades Liquors. 401 Palisade. About a ten minute walk south of here.

Convenience/Specialty/Grocery/Bodega
Peter’s Grocery at South and Baldwin (right out of the apt, left on Baldwin).
Oaxaca at Palisade near Bowers (left out of the apartment, across the street).
Rite Aid: On Central ave.
Kennedy Department Store on Central, 270 Central Avenue. Housewares, clothing.
Youngs Farm (Central at Hutton) Good low-cost produce options.
Andrews Salumeria: (Central at Franklin) Italian deli goods.
Stanley's Prime Meat Market 425 Central Ave: Polish butcher

Restaurants/Coffee
The neighborhood is not a culinary mecca, but there are some quality options. Many of them are on Central Avenue, about a ten minute walk up South street. (cross Palisade and walk west).

Ozu Foods: 106 Hutton St. New arrival! Haven’t been there but reviews are solid, Japanese food.

Other Jersey City/Hoboken Recommendations
Jersey City and Hoboken have a lot of high quality restaurants. Below are some favorites or recommended options. None of these are in the immediate area of 554a, but all within 5-10 minutes by car.

Razza 275 Grove Street, Jersey City: High end pizza
Thirty Acres 500 Jersey Ave, Jersey City, NJ 0730: Chefs used to work at highly hyped Momofuku in NYC. Entrees $18-26 range.
Taqueria Downtown: 236 Grove St, Jersey City, NJ 07302. Good affordable Mexican, fun vibe.
Ibby's Falafel 303 Grove St, Jersey City, NJ 07302: No frills but excellent falafel
La Isla: 104 Washington Street Hoboken. Affordable BYO, very small, not great for big groups.
Karma Kafe: 505 Washington Street Hoboken. Good Indian food in Hoboken.

Bars
The Trolley Car, 328 Palisade. Hipster/artist crowd. Nice back patio open in good weather. Burgers.
AJ’s on Palisade, 594 Palisade. Sports bar with wings, burgers. Mix of local crowd and hipster newcomers.
The Corkscrew, 61 Congress. Recently renovated, craft beers.

Pilsener Haus & Biergarten: Beer garden in Hoboken. About a 20 minute walk, 5 minute ride. Sausages, beer & other Austrian-Hungarian favorites served at communal tables indoors & out. 1422 Grand St, Hoboken, NJ 0703
Hoboken has a lot of other options. Guide to their bar scene here:

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 is at Congress and Palisade Ave. The fare is $4.50, and you must have exact change. At peak times they run pretty frequently. Takes about 20-30 minutes. The schedule is here. If you want to know when it will come by our house, the closest listed stop to 554a is Jersey City, Paterson Plank @ Congress.

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. Highly recommended.

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.

2: Or if you prefer, you can take the light rail. This will take a bit longer, but might be a nicer trip, particularly if you want to walk around Hoboken, which is a nice town. You take a right outside the apartment, walk to Congress, and take a right. At the end of Congress you should see a large elevator structure. Take the elevator down and you’ll be at the light rail station. Take a light rail train to Hoboken (should say HBLR Hoboken). Hoboken will be the last stop. You then take a PATH train, either to World Trade Center to go far downtown, or the 33rd street train which has stops through downtown New York. Another route by light rail is to take the train to Newport instead of Hoboken. From the 9th street station you’ll look for a train that says HBLR West Side). Take that to Newport stop. When you get there you will need to walk one block across Washington Ave (a large road) to the Newport PATH Station. This will take you on the 33rd street line.

To Hoboken
Jersey City Heights is just steps to Hoboken down a very steep hill. There are two ways to get there. One is to take a right outside the apartment, walk to Congress, and take a right. At the end of Congress you should see a large elevator structure. Take the elevator down and you’ll be at the light rail station in Hoboken. You can take the light rail two stops to get to the heart of Hoboken. The main drag is called Washington street.

The other is to take a left outside the apartment, turn left at Franklin Street, and take the large stairway down. If you walk straight ahead you’ll be on 1st street. If you go straight on 1st you’ll end up in the heart of Hoboken.

Parking
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 passes in advance if you agree to reimburse me. If you plan to use the car during the day you might not need a pass. You scratch off only the day you're using it and display that on your car. IMPORTANT POINT: keep in mind that even if you have a pass, you need to make sure to park in a valid spot. There are street cleanings periodically where certain spots become no parking zones for a set amount of time twice a week. Check the signs closely (even if you don't see one right near the car). The police will ticket

TV/WIFI: We have basic local service with HBO and Showtime. There is a Blu-Ray player where you can access Netflix through the WIFI. Instructions on WIFI are on our full manual.

Kitchen: Basic dishware/silverware and cooking utensils. Look on the drawers left of the sink for cutlery. We keep coffee, tea, oatmeal, cereal, raisins, milk and some other basic staples in the kitchen.

Bathrooms: The 2nd floor bathroom has shampoo/conditioner/soap, other toiletries and basic first aid items.

Trash/Recycling: We need your help with trash and recycling! There are three cans in the house. One for regular trash only near the stove. And two recycling cans near the back door. Blue one is for paper/cardboard. Taller one is for bottles/cans. Please separate your recycling inside.

If/when the inside bins are full, please put the recycling in the containers outside. Bottles/Cans should go in the large blue container with a black lid. Paper/Cardboard should be in the shortest can. No plastic bags! The two mid-size ones are for regular trash.

Trash is removed Monday and Thursday mornings so must be put out after 7pm Sunday or Wednesday evenings. The recycling is taken Wednesday morning and so can be put to the curb after 7pm on Tuesday.

I'm a father of three so my main functions involve transportation to athletic events. I work as an Editorial Director for a healthcare company and write plays.

We used to live in the home we now rent out in Jersey City. We love it and miss it (moved for the schools). We generally don't get to meet our guests as we live about an hour away, but our caretaker is just around the corner and can handle anything.
