The neighborhood of Guttenberg is quite small tucked away just north of Weehawken & the Lincoln Tunnel, only 4 blocks long and is what's considered a bedroom community- where almost half of the residents work and spend most of their time in New York City.
It is very quiet here and has a nice park 8 blocks north where there is a lake and residents exercise or relax. There's plenty of restaurants to walk too or have delivery, Thai, Italian and plenty of Latin food.
The town has 24hr bus service that takes you to Times Sq in a short period of time. There is also a ferry service that brings you near the Intrepid and West Side of Manhattan. Guttenberg also has the Hudson Light Rail system that connects to Hoboken and Jersey City.
