In addition to NJ Transit (Blvd. East, Bergenline Avenue, Kennedy Boulevard and River Road) buses, ferry, and light rail options, there are numerous smaller private "jitneys" that run on Blvd. East, Bergenline Ave., and Kennedy Blvd. to NYC with an end-point of 42nd St. and Eighth Avenue. As indicated in an answer by my colleague, 30-35 minutes (rush hour) is the approximate transit time, less off-peak. If you have any additional questions about West New York and nearby towns, please feel free to contact me!
