Spacious Apt. in Great Neighborhood, Minutes from West Village

We are the owners of this homey 2BR 2BA condo in an architecturally historic mansion in one of the best areas of downtown Jersey City. It's across the street from beautifully landscaped Van Vorst Park. The apartment has exceptionally high ceilings and oversized windows, giving it a surprisingly spacious feel.

My husband and I will be living and working in CA. We plan to keep the 2nd, smaller bedroom for ourselves to stay when we're in town, so you would only be sharing the apartment with us a few weeks of the year. We would consider your use of the 2nd bedroom for an occasional guest.

You will have a private master bedroom with queen-sized bed, library table (25"x40"), large chest of drawers, two roomy closets, built-in bookshelves, and private bathroom with jacuzzi tub and shower. You will also have full use of our condo, with a fully stocked modern kitchen, and living room with a couch and dining table/desk (36"x76"). A smaller second bathroom is yours to use when we are not at home. The apartment is fully furnished, and filled with original art. There is central heat and air, in-suite washer/dryer, a dishwasher, and high-speed WiFi is available. A lovely front garden has a bench for quiet afternoon reading.

Across the street is Van Vorst Park, the 125-year-old Jersey City Free Public Library, CitiBike station and a weekly Farmer's Market (May through December). The apartment is 5 blocks from public transit (PATH train to New York and Newark), Hudson Bergen Light Rail, and the historic downtown walking mall, with excellent restaurants, grocers, art galleries, yoga studios, and intimate music venues. The Jersey City Medical Center is a convenient 3 blocks away. It’s a short jog to the Hudson River and Liberty State Park, home of the Statue of Liberty with its miles of trails, yacht harbor, and Liberty Science Center.

We look forward to welcoming you to our neighborhood!
