Local Lifestyle

Perched atop the Hudson River Palisades, Weehawken has more to offer than simply breathtaking views, a cheaper price tag, and a commute to NYC. 

Here, residents find that a tight-knit community emphasizing a family-friendly atmosphere and pleasant locales can thrive. Parks, fine cuisine, delicious cocktails, and fun outings all have their place in this quaint, friendly city. Beyond only that, families love this city for its great educational opportunities. As if that weren’t enough, the rich history in this region stems all the way back to the country’s founding, giving the area an air of memorable, notable importance.
