Jersey City, New Jersey, United States

Located on a quiet, residential street, not more than an 10-minute walk to the Journal Square Path, train, you can easily reach Manhattan within 15-20 minutes of boarding one of its Manhattan bound trains. On weekends, the Path Train may take longer to reach your destination, as the Path Train makes a stop to Hoboken first before continuing into NYC. However, this may only take up to 5 minutes more.

Conveniently located within a block of a grocery store, Laundromat, pharmacy, convenience store, and a Diner, the Green House provides easy access to everything you may need during your stay. Some shopping can be found along Bergen Avenue and JFK Blvd, streets that run parallel on either end of Van Reypen Street.
