Below is a sample ride along the Jersey City Waterfront that helps highlight both the beauty of the area as well as the convenience of the Citi Bike!

Part I: Hudson River Waterfront Walkway

Grab a bike at the Newport PATH station and head south onto the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway from Pavonia Avenue.

Follow the walkway south along the waterfront, passing the Exchange Place. Enjoy the views of downtown Manhattan to your left!

Turn right onto Essex Street when the walkway terminates near the historic Colgate Clock.

Continue along Essex to enter the Paulus Hook neighborhood.

Part II: Historic Paulus Hook

Paulus Hook is known for its restaurants, and there are plenty of delicious options along Warren Street if you want to grab a bite. Just dock your bike at the Essex Light Rail station (Essex & Greene Streets) or the Morris Canal station (Dudley & Washington Streets).

Once you’re ready for part two of your ride, pick up a bike and get back on Essex Street heading west.

At the end of Essex Street, turn right onto Van Vorst Street.

At Grand Street, make a left. (Traffic on Grand is usually light on weekends, but it’s still a major thoroughfare, so stay alert as you head west.)

After about a half mile, make a left on Jersey Avenue, passing the Citi Bike station at the Jersey City Medical Center on your right.

Continue south on Jersey Avenue. The road appears to end, but keep straight onto the pedestrian bridge.

Once over the bridge, you’re in Liberty State Park!

Part III: Liberty State Park

If you want to enjoy the park by foot, continue straight after the pedestrian bridge down Phillip Street to make a right onto Audrey Zapp Drive / Johnston Avenue and dock your bike at the Liberty Light Rail station.

To continue by bike:

Take a left immediately after the pedestrian bridge to hug the waterfront and head east with Morris Canal to your left.

After about 3/4 mile, you’ll reach the Hudson River and the Empty Sky Memorial, the moving New Jersey monument to 9/11.

The waterfront path now heads south with Ellis Island directly ahead. Follow the path until the boardwalk veers left. This is the closest you can get to the Statue of Liberty on land!

From here, continue south to Morris Pesin Drive.

There are a few options, depending on where you want to end your ride: (a) Take a right onto Freedom Way to head back north to the Liberty Light Rail station; (b) Take the Hudson Bergen Light Rail back to downtown; or (c) Ride back over the pedestrian bridge to downtown Jersey City and PATH train stations.
