There is a lovely area at the waterfront in Jersey City with beautiful promenades and plazas that run along the Hudson River with beautiful views directly across from Lower Manhattan. The Hyatt is a luxury hotel right on the water in the heart of the waterfront and has wonderful views of the waterfront and Manhattan skyline. It seems like a nice alternative to staying in NYC since it is still close enough for tourists to easily get in and out of NYC via Ferry or Path trains.
Coming back to AM3 after a long hiatus. I hope to be more active in the coming months.
