Share Info About Newport - Jersey City
The Newport neighborhood is located right next door to the Historic Downtown and Exchange Place neighborhoods in Jersey City. Of course, as many people already know, at least locals, Jersey City is New Jersey's second largest city behind Newark, and the site of an extraordinary renaissance and redevelopment in the past couple of decades. The neighborhood of Newport is a terrific example of successful redevelopment, in this case of Jersey City's once-industrial, then long-neglected, waterfront area. Apartments in the neighborhood are most commonly found within a so-called master-planned mixed-use community, with gleaming new retail, residential, office and entertainment buildings all right on the banks of the Hudson River, and featuring spectacular views Lower Manhattan, right across the water, about one mile away. Newport is a roughly 600-acre community in the northern section of Jersey City, bounded to the south by the neighborhoods of Paulus Hook and Exchange Place, to the east by the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway, to the north by Hoboken, and the west by Marin Boulevard and the Historic Downtown area. Apartments are most often available in one of the neighborhood's numerous mid- and high-rise luxury buildings, with all of the services and amenities you'd expect, plus matchless views of the water and the Manhattan skyline. For residents of Newport who commute to work, the mass transit options are numerous and easily accessible. Popular choices for those who work in Jersey City and beyond include the Hudson Bergen Light Rail, with a stop in Newport, or the many municipal bus lines. Commuters to Manhattan tend to take the PATH train from the Newport stop, though some opt to drive via the easily accessible Holland Tunnel. Another option is a ride on the ferry, which offers terrific views of Manhattan, and a relaxing ride on your way into the city. The Newport River Market and the Newport Centre Mall provide ample shopping, and there are plenty of restaurants and cafes on site as well. Anchor stores include Macy's and Kohl's. In recent years, big box stores such as Target and Home Depot have opened nearby as well.
