Hoboken, New Jersey is considered part of the New York metropolitan area. It lies on the Hudson River with Weehawken and Union City to the north and Jersey City to the south and west. Directly across the Hudson River in Manhattan are the Chelsea and West Village neighborhoods.
Residential neighborhoods in Hoboken include Downtown, Midtown, Uptown, Castle Point, Hoboken Terminal, and Hudson Tea. The Northwest section of Hoboken had served as the industrial area, but it is now turning around to become residential as well. The main commercial area in Hoboken is Washington Street, which runs all the way from Hoboken Terminal to the Uptown Weehawken border. Washington Street is full of restaurants, bars, shops, and galleries.
Hoboken is a fairly small city; it is nicknamed ‘The Mile Square’ because it is literally that size. Transportation to Manhattan from Hoboken is incredibly convenient. Hoboken Terminal is a major transportation hub and provides access to the PATH trains running to Lower and Midtown Manhattan, ferries crossing the river to 14th Street, Battery Park, Wall Street-Pier 11, and the West Midtown Ferry. NJ Transit runs out of Hoboken Terminal, providing access all over New Jersey, and finally there is the Light Rail, an above ground train running through Hudson and Bergen counties.
