The tremendous redevelopment
possibilities for New Jersey's Hudson River
waterfront area across from Manhattan, and the dense population clusters of
places such as Jersey City and Hoboken, were good reasons for
constructing the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail.
Like the nearby Newark City Subway these routes are operated by NJ
The system has grown to three lines, servicing four different final
Hoboken Terminal; Tonnelle Ave. in North Bergen Township; West End Ave. in
Jersey City; and E. 22nd St., in Bayonne.
In this view a train is moving along Essex St. in Jersey City. It will
soon curve sharply to the left to head northbound through downtown. The proximity of lower Manhattan is
evident in this scene. It was a very clear morning in springtime.
