Located about two miles from Historic Downtown Jersey City and ten miles from Manhattan, Journal Square is a centrally-located commercial and residential neighborhood that keeps on growing. Access to major highways and the PATH train as well as lower rent prices continue to attract residents from Manhattan and Brooklyn. Apartments in Journal Square are found in great pre-war buildings, walk-ups, and private houses.
Journal Square is a business district, residential area, and transportation hub in Jersey City. Its namesake comes from the newspaper Jersey Journal whose headquarters were located there from 1911 to 2013. The “square” itself is at the intersection of Kennedy Boulevard and Bergen Avenue.
If you choose to live in Journal Square, you will have the chance to catch a performance at the Landmark Loew’s Jersey Theatre, take Fido to run around at Hamilton Park, peruse the shops at Newport Centre, and visit Liberty State Park to savor waterfront views of Manhattan, the Statue of Liberty, and Ellis Island.
