About this listing
Walking to distance to Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island with New York City Skyline.
Located in the up and coming Lafayette neighborhood, you are invited to enjoy the first floor of a hundred plus year old brownstone that has been completely renovated and wraps you in old world charm.
This is NOT a shared space. You will have complete privacy in your own private apartment.
The rooms are large, spacious, and airy. The kitchen is modern and is fully supplied with dishes and cookware, with a gas range, stainless steel refrigerator, granite counter top, and large dinning table. The bathroom is tastefully designed; complete with full sized bathtub and quality shower heads. Fresh linens and towels are included. Rest peacefully on a queen sized foam mattress bed. There is one very large closet and a one smaller one that is sure to accommodate your storage needs.
In the evenings, you can relax on a patio and enjoy a cigar, a glass of wine, or just the tranquility and fresh air. The living room has a large (full size) sitting area that can easily convert to a bed if needed. Of course, there is satellite television, high speed wireless internet, and the use of a washer and dryer included, as well as separate entrances to front and back of house. If you have a car, there is also EASY street parking.
You are convenient to everything. Manhattan in less than a half hour by convenient public transportation and barely 10 minutes by car. 1/2 mile from historic downtown Jersey City with trendy restaurants, bars, and shops abound; a sprawling and popular beer garden; and the Grove St. PATH station. From Grove St., take the PATH subway to Manhattan – six minutes to the World Trade Center stop or 15-25 minutes to Greenwich Village and on up to midtown. (From the apartment, it's a matter of crossing the street to the bus and eight-minute walk to the light rail, both of which bring you to downtown Jersey City.) Just a ten-minute walk to gorgeous Liberty State Park on the Hudson River – miles of cycling and jogging trails, nature center, playground, barbecue areas, and the ferry to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty where you will remember the astounding views of Manhattan and Lady Liberty.
While there are several NYC style “Bodegas" from which to pick up a few food items, there is also grocery delivery available from (website hidden). We live and work in Jersey City and love the location of this property because of its convenience and are happy to give you guidance on where to go and what to do. We also live in the upstairs portion of the house.
