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?
