Where is the best place for me to park the car and then take a train into Manhattan? I am driving in from NJ. I read in another thread that I could park in Journal Center in Jersey City and then take the PATH into Manhattan....is this a good option? Thanks

Where are you coming from and where in Manhattan are you going to?

I wouldn't deal with Jersey City, the traffic is ridiculous in and out. This might be a bit easier to get to, depends what time you leave.

Take Route 3 East to 'Last Exit in NJ,' that will be Hoboken. Follow signs for Washington Street, which will lead you to the PATH train. Parking is pricey, but well worth it.

I am driving from Central NJ. Taking children to do some sightseeing. So the hours will be off peak.

From central NJ, I'd park at Metropark in Iselin (more available parking than most other stations), and either take the train all the way to Penn Station in NYC, or change in Newark to the PATH trains if you're looking to go further south in Manhattan.

Park at the PATH station at Harrison and take the PATH in. Parking and traffic are much better than in Hoboken or Jersey City.

Also, I may be wrong, but I thought Route 3 ended into Tonnele Ave/1&9, not really near Hoboken? I think the other poster is referring to Route 495, which does have a Hoboken exit. Of course the drawback to this way is that you have to drive the length of Washington St in Hoboken, which can get crowded on weekends.

Yeah, I think Hoboken is actually worse to drive in/out of compared to JC. That's why I park at Journal Square. Weekend traffic in JC isn't that bad.
