Hudson River Waterfront Walkway
On the eastern side of Jersey City sits the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway. One a nice day, visitors of all ages can take in sites like the Statue of Liberty and the New York City skyline! Be warned in advance that the walkway can be very busy!
This vast exhibition space unites artists and artist studios under one roof. The space was formerly a tobacco warehouse and the purpose of the facility is to facilitate conversation about art and collaboration in the New Jersey community.

When you feel the need for speed, stop by RPM Raceway! Corporate parties, kid parties, and other events can be booked here. In addition to private parties, visitors can just show up and drive! Or, if you like the competition, sign up for a racing league!
First-timers can also take lessons so that they can learn the safest ways to race – and also how to hit top speeds!
The Empty Sky Memorial
The Empty Sky Memorial stands as a memorial for the 749 New Jersey residents who died on 9/11. Two walls inscribed with the names of those who died in the attack face one another, with the length of each wall being the same length as the height of one of the former World Trade Center Towers.
