Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal
1 Audrey Zapp Drive, Jersey City, NJ (In Liberty State Park)
The historic Central Railroad of New Jersey Terminal (CRRNJ), a grand setting for much of New Jersey’s transportation history in the northeast, sits prominently at the north end of Liberty State Park. A two-mile promenade, Liberty Walk links two picnic and playground areas, the Nature Center and the CRRNJ Terminal while presenting visitors with a sweeping view of the Hudson River.
From 1892 through 1954, the CRRNJ Terminal stood with the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island to unfold one of this nation’s most dramatic stories: the immigration of northern, southern and eastern Europeans, among others, into the United States. After being greeted by the Statue of Liberty and processed at Ellis Island, these immigrants purchased tickets and boarded trains at the Terminal that took them to their new homes throughout the United States.
