Hudson County Condominium Market Breakdown

View of Manhattan over the Hudson RiverHoboken and Downtown Jersey City are a commuter’s dream. Luxurious residential areas, proximity to New York City, and a host of local amenities make these Hudson County communities an extremely desirable place to live, work, and play.  And who can resist the warm glow cast on the Hudson River as the sun sets over the Manhattan skyline?
