Jersey City and other New Jersey suburbs from a distance
I never visited Jersey City, but it is very close to the southwest part of Manhattan. Jersey City is situated in the state of New Jersey, opposite Manhattan from Hudson River, and is considered an independent city. We could see it from our hotel. Its skyline has been growing the last decade.On 9/11 2001 many people were evacuated from Manhattan to Jersey City.
Population: 248 000
Jersey City skyline seen from our Chelsea Hotel, across Hudson River. You can find Goldman Sachs Bldg (New Jersey's tallest building), Trump Plaza and Exchange Place, Harbourside Plaza and Hudson Greene Towers on this photo. The skyline is still growing, new skyscrapers are planned.
Here you can see how close Jersey City (right) lies to Lower Manhattan (left). This is the view from our hotel, The Jane in Meatpacking District.

Staten Island Ferry in front of Jersey City. I am sure that many tourists are completely unaware of the fact that these buildings are not part of New York City, nor either the New York state. It is however part of the metropolitan area.
