Jersey City Heights, or to locals simply The Heights, is one of Jersey City’s five main neighborhood subsects, and currently the fastest growing for commerce and real estate. Known for its eclectic vibe and artistic culture, Central Avenue is the main thoroughfare with over 240 surrounding businesses including cafes, restaurants, retail, galleries and community centers.
Home to several beautiful city parks, locals enjoy Pershing Field and adjacent Reservoir with green space, baseball fields, swimming pool, ice-skating rink and side-by-side natural wetlands; Washington Park with dog run, tennis, basketball and baseball; Riverview-Fisk Park with captivating city views, running trails, courts and gazebo; and Leonard J. Gordon Park with larger-than-life sculptures and recreational facilities — to name a few.
Its elevated location offers residents views of the Manhattan skyline and Hoboken, as well as easy access to NYC via NJ transit bus, light rail, ferry and PATH train. Also equipped with excellent schools, Christ Hospital, and a wide array of public and community services, Jersey City Heights is the ideal combination of walkable urban lifestyle, comfortable family living and close-knit community.
