About this listing

A two bedroom apartment—entirely yours—situated in Historic Downtown Jersey City, a neighborhood right across the Hudson River from Manhattan in NJ. An easy and safe 15 min walk to the PATH subway stop, pass by farmers markets and coffee and ice cream shops.

The space

Hi, I'm offering a private (completely yours) two bedroom apartment located in Historic Downtown Jersey City, across the Hudson river from Manhattan.

The apartment is about a 3/4 of a mile to the nearest PATH subway station, which operates 24 hours. A 10-15 minute walk from the front door to the subway.

ABOUT THE APT: Situated on the third floor of a 19th century building this two bedroom apartment features hardwood floors, granite counters and exposed brick. It is a complete unit, totally private, nothing shared.

The bedrooms are bright with street facing windows:
1. Room One includes a queen sized bed (sleeps two), a chair and luggage rack. Small closet in the hall.
2. Room two has a twin bed (sleeps one), lounge chair, closet space and an empty clothes hamper.

The living room / kitchen provide a seating area (couch and chair) and shipping trunk coffee table to organize your day on. A standing desk is on the side.

Wifi awaits you.

An expandable kitchen table seats four and allows you to spread out. Great for sipping coffee and planning your day.

The basic kitchen offers a two hot-plates, drip coffee machine, electric kettle, small blender and a microwave as well as all the needed utensils. Note: The historic stove is for decor only.

FOOD: You'll find random things in the kitchen (if you see it, you can eat/use it). A supermarket and many brunch-y restaurants are minutes away.

LAUNDRY: A laundromat is on the corner. Drop-off service is available.

The entire apartment is yours and yours alone. I'll give you keys, show you to the apartment and then you are good to go.

I live in the same building in an apartment downstairs and work in Manhattan. If you have any questions or needs, email, text or call.

Throughout the neighborhood, you'll find splendid architectural relics mixed with '80s glass high-rise towers, pizzerias, old mansions, brick row houses, ice cream shops, tenements, and a selection of small bars and restaurants.

Most people walk to get around our neighborhood and in and out of Manhattan via the subway.

SUBWAY: Our subway system, called the PATH, goes directly to and from Manhattan 24 hours a day. We have a choice of two nearby subway stations at less than a mile away, Newport and Grove St.

WEEKDAY TIMES TO MANHATTAN:
Walking + Subway = about...
22 min to the World Trade Center, Downtown
25 min to Christopher St. in the West Village
33 min to Herald Square Shopping District (and Korea Town; Penn Station)
42 min to Times Square in Midtown
46 min to Central Park

NOTE: Weekend service into Manhattan is slower due to construction. One of our two nearby PATH stations closes during the weekend.

Please refer to GøøgleMåps.cøm/Trånsit for a map and the 24 hour train schedule: I'm near 6th St. and Coles in Jersey City.

TAXI: Cabs are found at the PATH stations. You can also call a cab anytime or book one online or on your phone (UBERx) if you need airport transportation.

BUS: The bus system here (as in New York) is slow and should be avoided at all costs.

DRIVING = 7 Minutes (no traffic) to Tribeca. We are on the NJ side of the Holland Tunnel.

ON-STREET PARKING: Since we are so close to mass transit, street parking is limited to 2 hours 8:AM to 5:PM Monday through Friday and is FREE overnight and weekends. We do have parking garages nearby.

CAR RENTAL: Major car rental agencies are within walking distance: Enterprise, Avis, Budget, Zip Car (hourly rental) and U-Haul (moving vans).


AIRPORT: I recommend booking flights to nearby Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to save you time and money.

Need a cab to/from any NYC Airport or to outlet mall shopping? Download the UBER app! If you have a smart phone that has a US data plan, UBERx is the cheapest and most reliable wat to go. Sign up in advance online or on your phone. Use promo code: UBERAIRBNB for a discount off you first ride. Select uberX when you need a ride.
No need to tip! This is my favorite means of transportation.

From JFK or LGA, plan on at least a 1.5hr - 2 hr mass transit ride, or spending $120 to take a reserved cab (Carmel or dial7 Car Service online, or UBERx (see above).

From EWR, plan on 1 hr mass transit ride, or spending $30 to take a reserved cab (King Limo or UBERx).


NOTE: Saturday and Sunday PATH subway service into Manhattan is slow due to construction. The 33rd St. line is closed during weekends, however the World Trade Center line is open.

DEPOSIT: $250, refunded by AirBNB.

This sweet home was perfect to enjoy my trip in NY. At first, I was worried about the location, but I've realized that it's worth to walk 1km everyday to the subway. Mike was really kind and considerate host, and home was very cosy and sweet. Everything was well-prepared.

If you plan to visit New York and you prefer nice place for your vacation which you can feel like "Home" with reasonable price, let's think about Mike's place. In the same price in NYC, you cannot get the big room like this with 2 bed rooms, kitchen and living room. Only 15 mins walk to PATH Station it's not that far. Along the way there are restaurants, convenience store and the big mall. And if you'd like to have beautiful photo of NYC at night, i recommend you to get of the train at Exchange Station at night, you will get the beautiful view of NYC with World Trade Center building and there are some nice restaurant around there. Mike is such a great host, he gave me lots of information which is very helpful. If I have chance to go to NYC or Jersey city again, Mike's place is my first choice!!!

We had a very good time at Mikes place. He was a great host and his flat was very clean and well prepared. The flat is close to the path which goes to the WTC or uptown to 33rd street. So good located! We enjoyed our trip and would like to thank mike for making us feel like we're at home. :) Melanie & Lucas

Mike was a really great host. He had useful insights regarding New York and Jersey City (travel, restaurants, food, etc.) and even helped us with our delayed luggage. He was easy to communicate with and always responded fast to our texts/mails. The apartment itself was exacetly like shown on the pictures, clean and comfortable. Would definately recommend it, if you are looking for a place to stay close to NY :)

I can definitely recommend Mike's place. We had a great stay and Mike was a great host. Perfectly sized apartment with all necessary facilities in the apartment and around the area. Great and quiet neighborhood as well. Be aware of your parking options if you arrive by car though - it's not impossible to find a parking space, but there are many limitations in the area.

Mike is the best host you would expect!!! Always attentive to everything we need! It is our first choice every time we visit NY and we love staying there. The apartment has everything you need to live comfortably during your stay. A few blocks from the subway to Manhattan and in a beautiful neighborhood, quiet, within the historic heart of Jersey City and with excellent dining options and the best views of Manhattan.

Hi,
I live in metro NYC where I work in TV production. You'll find a large urban garden behind my building, where I grow raised bed vegetables and berries. I enjoy meeting people from around the world.
