The views of New York city which we have seen from the Jersey City waterfront will stay forever with us. Every time we will talk about new York the view of the skyline from Jersey City waterfront comes up first than anything else. That is more convincing than anything else that New York trip is not complete with a visit to Jersey City Liberty Park and Jersey City waterfront.
The Waterfront at Exchange Place-PATH station remains without any doubt the best view of New York city sky line especially lower Manhattan’s shimmering glass, & chrome. Trust me. It’s virtually impossible to appreciate the wonder of it all once you’re across the Hudson in the City. I was constantly trying to capture the perfect shot of the water, sky, and human element combined. It’s hard to be disappointed whether its day or night on your visit.
WTC One inspired me every time I gazed at it. If you look south towards Staten Island & Brooklyn and there’s the Verrazano Narrows Bridge in the distance. Gotta appreciate the enormity of that that from a distance.
We discovered Jersey City to be most diverse in New York area. Jersey City definitely have diverse ethnic restaurants, outdoor bistros, breweries and distilleries, art galleries and venues to enjoy live music in intimate settings. Jersey City’s Hudson River Waterfront overlooking all of Manhattan features 30 miles of waterfront walkway with a multitude of restaurants and small attractions along the way, such as the well-known Colgate Clock, Powerhouse Arts district and the Newport Carousel and Ice Skating Rink. What we also discovered that it has incredible historical significance and had welcomed newcomers to the United States for centuries.
How we can forget Jersey City’s most exciting attraction – Liberty State Park? Formerly abandoned railroad land, this incredible piece of metropolitan area real estate has been transformed into a park like no other. 1200 acre open space with sweeping views of lower Manhattan, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty, along with ferries to all of the above, playgrounds, picnic areas, bike paths, gardens, marina and a fine restaurant with unparalleled view. Our kids were running up and down the walkways and view of New York city in the background will definitely created memories of lifetime for us. The restored railway station had notices of the upcoming festivals, concerts and other cultural happenings. We caught a ferry to go Statue of Liberty from here as well.
One of the best science museums in the northeast and suitable for all ages, is the Liberty Science Center, an absolute must for your Jersey City bucket list. Located within Liberty State Park, the science centre is home to the Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium, the largest planetarium in the Western Hemisphere and a number of exciting exhibitions you won’t find anywhere else!
We TOTALLY loved this place and will definitely be back soon to discover more of this Great City.
