Bright clean 2BR condo in Downtown Jersey City, Just Minutes to NYC

Bedrooms 2
Space 860 sq ft
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Comfortable and convenient home away from home

Please vacation in my apartment while I'm out of town


My 2 bedroom apartment is in the heart of downtown Jersey City. Inside a new boutique elevator building, it's a quick 8 minute PATH train ride into Manhattan. A great value.

This modern 2 bedroom apartment is ~80 sq meters (~860 sq ft) with high ceilings. Equipped with central air conditioning for year round comfort.

Room 1: Queen bed - sleeps 2

Room 2: Full bed - sleeps 2

Large living area with sofa - sleeps 1

Open kitchen and dining area for breakfasts.

Espresso machine in the kitchen if you're in the mood for a cup of coffee

Refrigerator has an automatic ice dispenser

Dishwasher available for your use

Hardwood floors throughout

Marble bath with rainfall showers

Washer and dryer in unit, available for your use.

Please note: Room 1 is a bright, south-facing room that currently has no shades on the window. It's perfect for those who like to wake up naturally with the sunlight! (I also provide eyeshades for those who prefer it.)

Please use kitchen only for simple breakfasts. (The smoke detector is very sensitive, so any sustained cooking tends to set it off.)

About My Neighborhood

The Historic Downtown Jersey City neighborhood is full of character and has everything you need. We're just west of the Hudson river waterfront, across from Manhattan. The area is full of restaurants, cafes, and shops, and transportation is very convenient.

You'll find little square parks, leafy streets with lower rise buildings like brownstones, and many young professionals and young families.

Many of us live here because it's just a short commute into NYC (2 stops on the PATH into downtown Manhattan) and more relaxed residential environment with all the urban amenities.

Food options abound! We're steps away from a wine bar, several cafes, a ramen shop, several bakeries, a creperie, a French bistro, a Cajun seafood restaurant, a bubble tea shop, a burger bar, a gelateria, pizzerias, many New American restaurants, several authentic Chinese restaurants, a great ice cream shop, and more.

All the basics are here as well. Drugstore / pharmacy, grocery stores, a farmer's market from May to December, and even a mall is within walking distance - in case you really need to go shopping!

I'm also excited about the many boutique fitness studios opening up nearby and would be happy to give you recommendations.

Transportation in the Area

The apartment is very accessible by public transportation.

PATH train (Grove St stop) is a few blocks away and runs 24 hrs a day / 7 days a week to downtown and midtown Manhattan.

Buses stop right outside the building, which take you to various areas in New Jersey.

Citibike Bike Share is located just steps away, for those who want to bike around.

Hudson-Bergen Light Rail is a few blocks away, and takes you to other parts of Jersey City, as well as Hoboken, and other areas in NJ.

Uber and Lyft are readily available. If you're bringing a car, street and metered parking are nearby.

About a 20 min drive from Newark Airport (depending on traffic).

About Amy

Hi, my name is Amy.

I grew up in the Midwest, but I've learned to call Jersey City home. While I'm away, I'd love for you guys to be able to enjoy my casual, comfortable apartment.

Things I love:

Food: Exploring cheap but delicious eats in the NYC area is one of my favorite pastimes

Enjoying the parks: We're lucky enough to have wonderful little green spaces both nearby and in the City. I love a beautiful afternoon picnic, or just a walk along the riverfront

Strange fitness classes: Despite not being particularly fit or coordinated, I've recently taken underwater cycling (yes, it's a real thing), aerial silks taught by a circus performer (bad idea), pole (injured myself), Bollywood dance (3 left feet), and megaformer (aka refined torture devices). If you're interested in these, or some more normal types of exercise, I can give you numerous recommendations.

Animals: Nothing perks up my mood like seeing an energetic puppy. Unfortunately, I cannot accommodate them in the apartment due to lease restrictions. :( (I can also give you a recommendation to a good pet care place nearby if you're traveling with a furry friend.)

Travel: Like many of you, I love to travel. I just replaced my passport, so now it's sad and empty... so time to fill it up! My favorite recent destination was Seville in Spain. Next up on my agenda this year: Mexico, then New Zealand and possibly sneaking in visits to Chicago and San Francisco in between.

Amy purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Amy chose The Village

I love where I live and its proximity to Manhattan (without quite being in it). Downtown Jersey City is a charming area that has a lot of urban amenities while retaining a neighborhood feel. Since I work in Manhattan and spend a lot of my time there, I could give you lots of tips on how to enjoy your visit here!
