Hudson County Apartments
NJ apartments can be found in abundance in New Jersey's smallest, yet densest county. Hudson County, in fact, is one of most densely populated regions in the United States.
Located in the northeastern section of the state, Hudson County apartments are no doubt in a bustling and vibrant area, yet plenty of the county has been set aside for parks.
The 47 square miles that house Hudson County apartments is bordered to the north by Bergen County, to the east by the Hudson River, to the south by Kill Van Kull (which is a body of water known as a tidal strait), and to the west by three other bodies of water: Newark Bay, the Hackensack River, and the Passaic River. Sitting right across the river from Manhattan, Hudson County apartments are very much a part of the New York metropolitan (also known as the Tri-state) area.
Hudson County: Just Minutes From NYC
Hudson County apartments are available in a huge variety of sizes, styles and prices, from brownstones to high-rises to garden apartment complexes. The neighborhoods range from unmistakably urban (the tallest building in the state, the Goldman Sachs Tower, is located in Jersey City) to communities with a more suburban feel, complete with wide lawns and quiet, tree-lined streets. Twelve municipalities make up Hudson County, including Hoboken (location of the first recorded baseball game in the United States, among many other distinctions), Secaucus (the most suburban Hudson County community), Kearny (which functions as a commuter town for Newark), and Jersey City (which, among many other quality-of-life benefits, offers residents ready access to the lovely, newly developed Hudson River Waterfront Walkway).
Many young professionals and families are searching for Hudson County apartments, because when compared with Manhattan, they provide drastically more space for the money. But another draw to moving across the river is the ease of commuting into Manhattan. There are several options for travelling to the city, including the PATH train, New Jersey Transit, the super-speedy Water Taxi, and, of course, you can also drive through the nearby Lincoln or Holland Tunnels. In addition to being virtually surrounded by water, Hudson County is also defined geographically by the New Jersey Palisades, the long, striking line of cliffs that follow the path of the Hudson River. And there are parks galore for residents of Hudson County apartments, including the county's largest, Liberty Park, and the new Snake Hill Park (also known as Laurel Hill).
