Things to Do:

Jersey City is said to mirror the Manhattan experience in most ways except the cost.
The ferry from Liberty State Park will take you to the Statue of Liberty and to Ellis
Island all through the year. Before you hop the boat on you visit the Central Railroad
Terminal where almost two-thirds of the twelve million immigrants who came into
the United States of America through Ellis Island left to start their new lives.

If it is bright and sunny outside, you can walk or ride a bike [own or rented] on the
Hudson River Waterfront Walkway. On the 18.5 miles path you will see, if you
decide to bike it all, the Liberty State Park and the Statue of Liberty, Bayonne — a
peninsular city and Hoboken — a city in Hudson County, NJ.

    Hey May,
