Moving from NYC to Hoboken


As rental and purchase prices continue to soar in all parts of NYC, young professionals and families are beginning to explore other options. Hoboken apartments are a steal in comparison to NYC, which is why today more than ever; we’re seeing Brooklyn & Manhattanites pick up and move across the Hudson.  Hoboken has become an increasingly attractive alternative to living in New York City, and we encourage you to take a look for yourself.

Located just across the Hudson River from the Manhattan neighborhoods of Chelsea and the West Village, the city of Hoboken, New Jersey, is bordered to the north by Weehawken and Union City, to the east by the Hudson River, and to the south and west by Jersey City. Residents of Hoboken often enjoy quicker, less stressful commutes to certain areas of Manhattan than their New York City counterparts, either via the PATH train, which has numerous stops in the West Village, Chelsea, and the Garment District & Herald Square, or by ferry, which on nice days can turn a routine trip into something that feels more like a sight-seeing expedition.

Residents here in Hoboken also enjoy the convenience and manageability of living in a relatively small city. Hoboken takes up approximately one square mile of New Jersey real estate, so just about everything is within walking distance. Don’t let the size of Hoboken fool you, as the town offers boundless diversity and liveliness, while still maintaining an undeniable community feel. This charming city comes with an impressive restaurant scene estimating around 150+ eateries, boutique shops, community events, great schools, a movie theater, Maxwell’s music venue, Hoboken historical museum, Pilsner Haus Beer Garden, and more.

Hoboken apartments are also near several parks, such as the delightful Pier A Park; a huge expanse of lawn built on a pier that sits right on the water, with stunning views of the Manhattan skyline—making it perfect for picnicking and sunbathing. The park totals 5 acres and has a half-mile of walkways. Movies are shown on the lawn during the summer and draw a nice crowd. With all of this to consider, Hudson Place Realty invites you to come visit the town we’ve fallen in love with and welcomes all information inquiries about the Hudson County area.
