Best way to Hobeken from Midtown Manhatten?

Hi

We are wanting to take a day trip from Midtown to Hobeken on a Saturday. I have looked at a few websites however with not having been to the US before, it is a little confusing as to the best way to get there and back. Is there a ferry that departs midtown or is the train a better option? We may stay into the night and then head back to Manhatten so what may be the best option going across may not be for the trip back. Can someone please help with the easiest, least confusing way to make this trip?

Cheers!

The PATH train has a station at W. 33rd & 6th Avenue. You can get a train to Hoboken from there.

We were just in NYC last week and stayed for a couple of days in Hoboken. It is super easy on the PATH train to get from lower Manhatten to NJ.

There are basically 2 ways to get to Hoboken by PATH.

One is from Midtown (33rd st as already noted) with stops at 23, 14, 9th and Christopher St. than, Hoboken.

The other is from Lower Manhattan/WTC area which is two stops Jersey City (Exchange Place, Newport) then Hoboken. Don't take train to Journal Square, tho.

They are both easy and quick trips. BTW: on weekends and later evenings the trains overlap somewhat, so check the PATH website above.

There is also a ferry, NY Waterway, but it is more a commuter ferry.

LittleEngine, I tried to leave a comment on your blog but it kept freezing, so here it is:

There are walking tour directions on the Hoboken Museum website for anyone who wants to spend time there. I'm hoping to try them out before the weather gets cold.

It's a cute little town; make sure to stop in the old ferry terminal.
