I live in West New York, NJ. I'm right on the Hudson, across from Manhattan. For those of you in Manhattan, it is extremely easy to get to me. You can take the NY Waterway ferry from 38th St. (it's a 6 min. ferry ride)
It sounds like you have great digs!
As a kid from N.J. who used to ride the train ferry's to Manhatten when I could, I'm curious:
This "NY Waterway" ferry is one of those new fast boats, right. What does it connect with on the Jersey side? Buses? Is it the only cross Hudson ferry now? Was it set up to reduce congestion in the Lincoln tunnel? How much does it cost?
When I was a kid (waxing nostalgic) I would, on occasion, take the S.I. Ferry to St. George, the S.I.R.T to Tottenville, the Perth Amboy Ferry to Jersey (long gone; the ferry, not Jersey), and the bus home.
I understand you can get as far as Tottenville, these days for $3.00, and the S.I. Ferry is free for pedestrians. (It used to cost a nickle.) The whole trip, the poor man's train and boat excursion, used to cost around a buck, including $.15 for the subway to the Battery.
