The "Shades" of weehawken is the last stop on the 126 (Hoboken) bus line going into Port Authority and it is the first stop leaving the city. The area is on the border of Weehawken/Hoboken, it is a developing area with new construction condos,homes,rentals. 7-10 minute bus ride from bus stop to Port Authority, depending on traffic.

5-7 min walking distance to Light Rail (Hoboken, Hoboken PATH, or Jersey City) and to Weehwaken waterfront (Ruth Chris, Sheraton, Houlihans, can also catch the 158 bus line to the city).

Areas: Hackensack Plank Road, W. 19th Street, Grand Street, W 18th Street, Willow Avenue.
Newly built Hoboken's 1600 Park

They are currently building new rentals/condos on Weehawken/Hoboken border: "The Gateway" to Weehawken. It is situated between the Park and Willow Avenue bridges.

I use to rent in Hoboken for 7 years, until I bought a townhouse (no maintanence fee) in the Shades. Double the space, backyard, driveway, garage for the same/less price as the condos in Hoboken. I enjoy living here as it is quieter than Hoboken but it is a quick ride to the city/Hoboken for work/nightlife.

I hope you have bought your new home and settled in Weehawken by now. I am a native of Weehawken and lived there for over 29 years. I still return from time to time. Weehawken in a small city but the crime there is very low, hardly any at all. I am sure you will be quite safe there. However I wll advise you to stay away from Jersey City.. especially the Greenville section. Sincerely Yours, Robin Haines ... more

A little punctuation wouldn't go amiss. Reading that was painful.
