Overall: Edgewater is a township located alongside the Hudson River. Because of its prime location, there are many townhouse/condo communities that offer superb waterfront view. Compared to Weehawken and West New York, Edgewater is less known to people yet beautiful, quiet, and convenient. Situated among populous towns, Edgewater attracts chain stores such as Whole Food's, Trader Joe's, Target, Michael's, HomeGoods, TJMaxx, and Staples. Mitsuwa Marketplace, a Japanese supermarket that hosts many Japanese restaurants, dessert stores, and a grocery store, has attracted many serious foodies from New Jersey and New York to pay a visit.
Transportation: Located between Weehawken and Fort Lee, commuters can choose to drive north by car to cross the George Washington Bridge to reach Uptown Manhattan/Queens, or can drive south to take the Lincoln Tunnel to reach Midtown Manhattan. On weekdays, NJ transit 156, 158, 159* runs frequently during rush hours and some condo buildings provide private shuttles to the Port Imperial Ferry. It's a hidden gem if you are considering a perfect balance between commute, price, space, and view. Edgewater is rated A+ on Niche.com as a place to live in.
