Conseils sur la ville

Déplacements
Most guests prefer using Uber / Lyft / taxi from the home to the PATH train stations or Downtown JC
The home is approximately a 15-20 minute walk or 5 minute drive to Journal Square PATH Station, or a 7-8 minute drive to Grove Street PATH and Exchange Place PATH Stations where the PATH train runs directly to New York City and Newark, NJ. The PATH train is 15-25 minutes to NYC depending which stop. When commuting to NYC, most guests prefer to use Uber, Lyft, or taxi to one of the PATH Stations then take the PATH train from there. There are also Citi Bike stations 2 blocks form the home in both directions where you can rent bikes 24/7. There is a bus stop on the corner steps from the home where the bus runs to Journal Square. However, we normally recommend just using Uber or Lyft to the PATH train stations as the price is comparable to the bus fare, and Uber/Lyft is generally more flexible and convenient. New York City is a 15-25 minute drive away (when there is no traffic at the Holland or Lincoln Tunnel!) Newark Airport is 8 miles away and is a 15 minute drive to our home.
