For instance the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad Powerhouse. The building was erected between 1906 and 1908 and is built in a Romanesque revival style. This powerhouse allowed the operation of the first trans-Hudson subway. It stopped operating in 1929 and has been neglected since then, till 2001 when it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places; plans for renovating it have been under way.
The Jersey City City Hall is another old building, built in 1896, out of granite and marble, the building features a bronze memorial monument at its entrance representing the Goddess of Victory in a seated pose, with a hand resting in readiness upon her sword but offering an olive branch with the other.
If you’re looking for a place to have a nice walk and get some air then you can head for the Liberty State Park, this park is actually as large as Central Park in New York but it is considerably less developed. Despite this, it is a very popular attraction thanks to its waterfront and wonderful views of Manhattan, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
These are of course only a few of the things that you can see and do while in Jersey City and in order to enjoy the place to its maximum make sure to consider employing our Jersey City car hire services while on your trip there.
