Ridgewood’s Real Estate market has remained strong, despite the housing downturn, in large part due to its easy access to Manhattan for commuting professionals and fun-seeking day trippers alike.
Ridgewood New Jersey to New York City (Midtown and Downtown) via Train
Many Ridgewood residents are able to enjoy a short walk to the train each morning as it is located in the center of town. Those that drive to the Ridgewood Train Station will find plenty of parking. From there it is a short 36 minute train ride to Hoboken. Once in Hoboken you have your choice of taking the PATH train to Midtown or downtown. The midtown PATH train adds 12 minutes to your trip and the trip via PATH train to downtown (Wall Street area) is only 7 minutes. Ferry service to Midtown and Downtown is also available from Hoboken.
Ridgewood to Manhattan via Bus
If you are working in Midtown, heading to a Broadway show or if you are not in walking distance of the train then the NJ Transit Bus may be be the best bet for you. The buses stop all over Ridgewood and the express bus can get you into New York’s Port Authority Bus Terminal in 48 minutes. From there you can walk to most midtown destinations or you can access the subway system which is directly under the bus terminal.
Ridgewood NJ to Midtown Manhattan Via Car
Ridgewood NJ is located just 23 miles from the heart of mid-town Manhattan which translates into a short 37 minute car ride. This mode of transportation is great for the Ridgewood Resident heading to Manhattan during non-peak traffic hours or for the commuter who does not want to be bound to a bus or train schedule.
If the short one hour commute from Ridgewood to NYC is still too much for you then you must check out Hoboken Real Estate where NYC is a mere 10 minute bus or train ride away.
