I'm new to this (city-data AND real estate). What can you tell me about Park Hudson Condos in North Bergen, Hudson County. Transportation to manhattan? neighborhood? the building itself? Also, any other suggestions for a good city to invest in in northern NJ. we're interested in buying a home for under $200,000. We are flexible, just want at least 1 bedroom, under 1 hour commute to downtown manhattan by public transport, for under 200G, and in a relatively safe area.

I'm quite familiar with NB, but haven't heard of that development -- what's the address ?

there is a huge difference in QOL between downtown NB & uptown...

ah, OK -- that's on the Cliffside Park border.

not too bad over there, alot of traffic from the park, but commuting by bus to NYC is a breeze over there.

uptown is much better.

many people think the "racetrack" section of NB is the best in town, but the houses are much more densely packed than in the Woodcliff section, and heaven help you if you're on the Kennedy-to-Tonnelle hill in the wintertime

you mean the fairview border..commute to nyc should be a breeze, you're halfway between the gw and the lincoln and if you want to go the public transpo route, you have blvd east, river road, and bergenline nearby...uptown nb has some serious, foot on the brake hills and walking them can be torture in the summer or inclement weather but it is nicer than the downtown section

these are nice condos but within the 200k range. Perhaps a one bedroom but taxes are high and maintenance is upper 700 a month. I just go the details from a realtor. Lower bergen county is nice area as well, safe and decent prices. I would recommend searching real estate sites or contact a few realtors and see what they have in foreclosure and short sales.

The Park Hudson is a great building and perfect for commuting into the city. My husband and I live there and both commute into the city. You have the bus, a quick ride to the ferry and you are a hop skip & jump from the Lincoln Tunnel (if not during rush hour). We are close to all the new stores, restaurants and movie theater but no on River Road so we don't have to always deal with the traffic. The building is great. It's full service with a doorman, pool, laundry and most of the apts have spectacular views of NYC (being up on the hill the views are unobstructed). Good luck with your apartment search!

The Park Hudson is a very nice building, Recently converted to condos, its a full service building with doorman, security and full building staff. There are about 60 condos out of 210 that have a full unobstructed view of the city. They are the most desierable and the most expensive. they are also the hardest to come by. In general the Condos are large with huge windows that allow for great deal of light. commute into the city is very easy, the neighborhood is quiet, and safe.. the park acts as a great barrier to the rest of hudson county. A 1 bed room facing the city starts in the high 290 to 350.. still with in reach but when the market starts to go up expect them to jumt to the 400.. Maintenance is a bit high at 470 to 500. hope this helps

That hill can be a pain in the snow.
