I've just moved into an apartment on Palisade Avenue right by the Christ Hospital in the Heights. So far, it's been a good experience but I have a few questions:
How do the buses work? I've taken the "independent" Bergenline buses a couple of times but they don't drop me off right at Journal Square PATH (and I don't know where to get them to come home) and I don't know what time they stop running (I work late many nights and would not be coming home until 2-3am -- I'd hate to have to take a cab home every night). Is there a better way to get into Manhattan from here? (I've read about an elevator being installed at a light rail station but I don't know if this is near me or when exactly this is supposed to take place.)
Also, is there a grocery store nearby within walking distance? The only grocery store that I know of is by Newport Mall.
Finally, what is the area like in terms of safety (at night)? Around my apartment is generally okay at night but it seems a little sketchy if you walk too far from it (maybe it's just me, but I wouldn't mind hearing other people's opinions).
