Welcome to the Newport section of Jersey City, NJ!! Newport is a community in Downtown Jersey City. This video starts in the northwest corner of Newport heading southeast. When people hear Newport, a lot of people think that Newport refer to the mall. The mall is called “Newport Mall” because is located in the Newport Section.
As you can see in the map in the beginning, Newport is from 18th St to 6th St, from Marin Blvd to the Hudson River. Is a 600-acre mixed-use community consisting of retail, office, residential, and entertainment facilities. It has a lot of parks, skyscrapers, restaurants, plazas, hotels, and more. The development is ongoing, since, as you can see in this video, there are a lot of construction equipments, and a tower under construction, as well as, a crane at the beginning of this video. It also have a light rail station and a PATH station. (Downtown, Jersey City have several light rail stations, but one specifically in the Newport section). Unfortunately, I didn’t record any train, because by coincidence, there was no train passing when I record by the train overpasses and the station, since it was not rush hour. (There are trains passing almost the whole day,, from 5 am to almost midnight)
The audio track at the beginning of this video is called: “Timed out (Sting)
