We know how it is. You love everything about your Brooklyn neighborhood — your coffee shop, your neighborhood bar, the vibrant street life — but it’s hard to justify spending so much money for such a small apartment. To even think about moving somewhere else, that place would have to offer all the things you love about Brooklyn, plus a convenient commute to Manhattan and hopefully some tasty amenities to sweeten the deal.
Meet 25 Senate Place, the new luxury apartment building in Journal Square, which is fast becoming home to some of the most coveted real estate in Jersey City. The Journal Square neighborhood is a great Brooklyn alternative, with historic buildings, lively restaurants and bars, and the kind of artistic sensibilities that make a neighborhood come alive. And if you work in Manhattan, your commute via the PATH train to 33rd Street would be a mere 22 minutes, or a breezy 14 minutes to the World Trade Center.
With rentals starting at $1,695 a month, not only will your spacious studio, one- or two-bedroom, or duplex loft be less pricey than Brooklyn rentals of the same size, the building amenities will have you bragging to all your friends. Perks include a 24-hour concierge, state of the art fitness centre, game room, a resident lounge that doubles as a chic work space, onsite parking, and a common courtyard with curated art installations.
Before you head to work you can pick up a coffee from Modcup, Jersey City’s premier gourmet coffee purveyor, and drop your puppy off at Club Barks doggy care. Both Modcup and Club Barks opened new locations in the building.
Once you’re out and about in the neighborhood, Journal Square has a lot to offer in the way of restaurants, bars, nightlife, and culture. For the latter, plan a visit to the Mana Contemporary cultural center, just down the block as well as nearby Art House Productions or the historic Loews Theater Jersey City. You can shop for organic produce the twice-weekly Farmer’s Market before stopping off for a hot dog at the famous Boulevard Drinks.
Like Brooklyn, Jersey City is a true melting pot of world cultures. Fans of South Asian food will love sampling the dozens of authentic restaurants in India Square. In June, the annual Egyptian Festival is a celebration of the food and music of Jersey City’s large Egyptian-American population.
Far be it from us to tell you to leave Brooklyn behind for another lively, cosmopolitan, exciting, scrappy city. But if you’re ready for your next apartment rental to be more than just another rental, come visit! Check out the 25 Senate Place website or call (844) 577-4663 for an appointment.
