Jersey City serviced apartments
Located across the Hudson River from New York City, Jersey City, N.J., is one of the fastest growing urban centers on the Eastern Seaboard. Sometimes referred to as "Wall Street West" by Manhattanites and local residents, Jersey City is the very definition of a commuter city, but has more to see and do than meets the eye.
A stone's throw from the Big Apple
Jersey City is nestled between Newark to the west and New York City to the east. Connected to the Big Apple by the Holland and Lincoln Tunnels and Newark by the Pulaski Skyway and Lincoln Highway, Jersey City is an ideal destination for executives planning to do business in either of these thriving metropolitan areas. BridgeStreet’s Jersey City serviced apartments are conveniently located in the heart of the city, and offer easy access to both Newark and New York City expressways. Properties like the Liberty Towers and The Pier offer commanding views of the Manhattan skyline and Hudson River, while 50 Columbus and the Monaco complex put everything Jersey City has to offer right on guests' doorsteps.
Although Jersey City is not home to any Fortune 500 companies itself, several large organizations are located nearby, including Prudential Financial and the Public Service Enterprise Group. Jersey City's proximity to Manhattan also puts many major Wall Street firms within easy reach, including Chase Manhattan Bank and JP Morgan.
Fun in the sun
Jersey City is a perfect destination for tourists and boasts many attractions that are often overlooked by some visitors. Travelers who want to experience the majesty of the iconic Manhattan cityscape can do so from the comfort of a sailboat on one of many cruises offered from marinas along the Hudson, but there is plenty to do for visitors who want to stay on dry land, too.
The Empty Sky 9/11 Memorial is one of Jersey City's most popular attractions, but it remains one of the area's best-kept secrets. Many local residents are unaware of its existence, and this somber reminder of the tragic events of 9/11 should be on everyone's list of must-see sights. Travelers with children spending time in Jersey City may also want to explore the Liberty Science Center, a child-friendly museum containing a diverse array of interactive learning experiences with a scientific slant.
Although often overshadowed by its neighbor to the east, Jersey City is a unique destination with an atmosphere all its own. BridgeStreet’s Jersey City serviced apartments are the perfect alternative to costly chain hotels, and they offer guests the comforts of home with the luxury amenities travelers would expect from a boutique hotel.
