Stunning views of Manhatten. What a great place to stay and with the PATH train just 8 mins to the WTC and 911 memorial why would you stay in noisy Manhattan?

Love the Jersey City Waterfront at Harborside/Exchange Place. No better view than downtown NYC and the Statue of Liberty. The Hyatt is beautiful and you can find parking fairly reasonable.

A very pleasant walking experience which allows views of the Manhattan skyline from the New Jersey side of the river. Excellent & abundant eateries are scattered throughout the area. Well worth spending time here. Recommended.

This place is across the Manhattan and you could take the beautiful Manhattan skyline. But it's also need mention that jersey city skyline is not bad too. And taking each shot of it is beautiful.

If you make it to WTC take the PATH to Exchange Place (one stop) and enjoy the spectacular view of downtown Manhattan. Close to the water is the Hyatt and a few coffee bars, but the view is the star. Well worth two trips on...More

Drive downtown towards Grand St, Pacific St, turn left onto Johnson. Best time to go is early AM or early evening. Check out the 9/11 Memorial, the view of Miss Liberty, the view of Ellis Island. Enjoy the photo opps !
