When I was living in New Jersey, my schedule allowed me to be free on the weekends. So often I went to NYC with friends but also to other cities around in NJ. Taking the trains was easy even if it was a bit expensive.
Hoboken is located in the other side of the Hudson river just in front of New York City. There is a beautiful view of the Big Apple from there.
I went with a friend last October, we took the train in the morning, and we reached the city. It was a very sunny day but windy and a bit cold. The train station in Hoboken is amazing! It’s very pretty and few blocks away from the famous bakery seen in the TV show Cake boss: Carlo’s Bakery.
We walked along the Hudson river waterfront and admires the view. At the end of the day, we stopped at the bakery to try the cakes from there, it was delicious! 🙂 and sat in Pier A Park till night time to take pictures of the skyline of NYC.
