Weehawken Township Reviews

I have lived in Weehawken for the past two years. I decided to move to Weehawken because I work in New York City, however, I do not want to pay New York City rent prices. Apartment prices in Weehawken are slightly cheaper than New York City, with much more amenities, safer area, and significantly cleaner. Weehawken is very close to Hoboken which has a more diversified night life (Weehawken is very lacking). However, this works for me because it’s only a $7 uber ride away. Weehawken’s residential market is certainly booming with condos and apartments being built everywhere along the water.
Review Weehawken Township
Weehawken is a small, quiet and diverse residential neighborhood. It's like a gold nugget found in the midst of an otherwise very busy area. The view of the NYC skyline along the Hudson River is priceless. It has a small town feel but with a sense of sophistication, history and culture. Proximity to NYC is as good as it can get. Development on the waterfront allows for miles of opportunity for cycling, walking and running. The Township provides enjoyable and meaningful community programs. As a resident on the bluff, I find some frustration in the limited shopping/dining/conveniences available within walking distance; however, this isn't the case for residents living on the waterfront. Overall, I enjoy living here and think it's a special place.
I love the living in New Jersey, specifically Weehawken. It is such a charming and friendly community filled with a rich history. It is in a perfect location with only a twenty minute commute to Manhattan, all the while right on the edge of the interstate to the New Jersey Turnpike. There are historical landmarks to be found around every corner, with very interesting tales to be told.
