Weehawken, the Hudson County township that sits on the western shore of the New Jersey Palisades, provides an escape hatch to the detached and cramped life that New York City offers.
The area is just a skip and a hop away from New York City but may as well be in a Midwestern state.
Residents, who have the option of taking a 15-minute bus ride that zips through the Lincoln Tunnel into Midtown Manhattan, tell tales of a small town environment, with the added plot twist of a good public school system.
This combo is unusual considering the area’s proximity to one of the world’s busiest metropolitan areas.
Weehawken is no longer being quickly dismissed by apartment hunters. According to the United States Census Bureau, Weehawken is housing a rapidly swelling population.
