I am looking to secure a 2 bedroom apartment unit in the $3000 price range. I have visited the Sky Club, Hudson Square North, Hudson Square South, Zephyr Lofts, and Archstone Hoboken. I have pretty much narrowed it down to either Hudson Square South (205 Hudson St) or Archstone Hoboken (77 Park ave)

The Hudson Square South apartment seems like a bit out - dated, and dimly lit..but it is super convenient. It doesn't have a gym, but has municipal parking nearby for $140. I would need a car to travel to work. Also, it has washer/dryer in the unit.

Archstone Hoboken isn't too far from path either, but I have read some negative reviews about management online. Also, the parking is $240 a month, so I would probably have to try my luck at street parking. There are no washer/dryers in the unit, and only in the communal laundry room.

Does anybody have experience living in either of these apartment complexes? Both have good locations, but wanted to hear feedback from any users who may be able to speak on these before I sign onto any lease. Thanks in advance.

Take the conveniance over the modern, looking for street parking in that town can be a royal pia and it only gets worse in the winter. It's also no fun hauling your dirty laundry unless you plan using it to meet "others", might beat the bar.

Why restrict yourself to just those named apartment complexes?

I can't speak to the complexes but I can speak to parking. Are you sure you can get a municipal parking spot? There's usually a waiting list that can be years long. And the price depends on which garage you're at and how far you are from the station.

Depending on when you commute, you most likely can't rely on street parking. My DH used to commute and get back to Hoboken at 5pm everyday. He still has to spend 10-45 minutes to get a spot.

I asked the attendant in the municipal garage on Hudson/2nd and he said they have limited monthly passes which means I am forbidden from using the garage from 10am to 4 pm on weekdays. It is discounted at $140 and requires a lease with hoboken address, and photo ID. He said there was not a waiting list..I'm hoping what he said is credible because I could not find any verification of this online.

I would like easy access in/out of NYC. I understand there are some nice apartment complexes in the northwest side (like upper grand) but that is not walkable and I'm sure their shuttles only run in peak times.

Here's a link specific to Hoboken. You don't have to live in one of the massive rental unit places. There are TONS of places to rent that may even include parking. At 3k you have a lot of choices. We live across from one on 7th and adams. They rent parking there and there are lots very close by. It's close to the bath (within 10 minute walk etc). I wouldn't limit it to just two places.

To be honest, if you're moving to Hoboken, maybe you should reconsider owning a car? Maybe it's necessary for you or your spouse/SO's commute, but, if it's not, there are very few reasons to own a car in Hoboken (and a lot of reasons not to).

I'm pretty sure there is no waiting list for Hoboken. I think it's $180 if you plan on leaving your car there during the day. IIRC, it's on the Hoboken website.

I have friends that live in Archstone and like it. It's a good spot near the PATH.
