Light Rail Across the Hudson

The tremendous redevelopment possibilities for New Jersey's Hudson River waterfront area across from Manhattan, and the dense population clusters of places such as Jersey City and  Hoboken, were good reasons for constructing the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail. 

Like the nearby Newark City Subway these routes are operated by NJ Transit.  The system has grown to three lines, servicing four different final destinations: Hoboken Terminal; Tonnelle Ave. in North Bergen Township;  West End Ave. in Jersey City; and E. 22nd St., in Bayonne.

In this view a train is moving along Essex St. in Jersey City.  It will soon curve sharply to the left to head northbound through downtown.  The proximity of lower Manhattan is evident in this scene.  It was a very clear morning in springtime.
