The Heights Section of Jersey City

Easy Access to the Hoboken 2nd Street and 9th Street Light Rail Stations

Riverview Park on Ogden Avenue
Showing Just a Small Portion of the Panoramic View
The Ogden Avenue / Palisade Avenue Section of the Heights offers breathtaking views of the New York City Skyline and the length Hudson River that runs from upper Manhattan all the way down to the Verrazano Narrows Bridge. Housing is mostly one- and two-family structures and a number of multi-family walkups (many of which have units available as condos). The neighborhood is extremely quiet. Shopping and services are only a few blocks away at Central Avenue. Hoboken -- and access to New York City by PATH subway or ferry is only a fifteen minute walk. You can enjoy a small town atmosphere on your home block while still having the entire spectrum of Manhattan's social, recreational, and cultural resources waiting for you.

Christ Hospital, Palisades Avenue, is a premier health care facility with an emergency room, and every sort of acute, and long-term care facilities. Christ Hospital also offers many types of services to preserve health and prevent illness.

The hospital itself and the many nearby doctors' offices and diagnostic services provide many employment opportunities. The charming neighborhood homes allow for the exciting prospect of a "commute" of just a few blocks!

A nursing school is affiliated with Christ Hospital.

Summit Avenue, Two Blocks North of Pershing Field
Pershing Field Park – south of Manhattan Avenue, between Central and Summit Avenues– is the heart of the Heights. Pershing Field offers Little League, a outdoor running track, basktball courts, tennis courts, an Olympic-sized swimming pool, and ice skating. The youngsters haven't been forgotten! You'll find swings, sliding ponds, and other amusements for small children. Also, for the enjoyment of all, carnivals and circuses are held generally twice a year.
