Hudson County, NJ has long been called the “Gateway to America,” due to its history as the first stop for many immigrants processed through Ellis Island. Nowadays many would argue that moniker has taken on new meaning, as the busy streets of towns like Hoboken, Jersey City, Bayonne, Weehawken and beyond, serve as a gateway to the excitement of nearby Manhattan, as well as some of the best food, shopping, nightlife and local events New Jersey has to offer.
