Jersey City is in northeastern New Jersey. Its eastern waterfront faces the Hudson River where it meets Upper New York Bay. Liberty State Park has panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, the former immigrant gateway. The park’s Liberty Science Center features interactive exhibits, live animals and an IMAX Dome theater. Bars and ethnic eateries line downtown’s Grove Street.
