Enjoy the view in Weehawken

As well as being immortalized on canvas in Edward Hopper's 1934 oil painting East Wind Over Weehawken, this family-friendly town was the site of one of America's most famous conficts – the duel between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr in 1804. It's also the western terminus of the Lincoln Tunnel, which cuts through the middle of the town and links Weehawken to Manhatten. As well as giving you easy access to the bars, restaurants and museums of Manhattan, a Weehawken vacation rental is within easy reach of the town's many points of interest and year-round attractions.


Messing about on the river in Weehawken

There are plenty of ways to explore Weehawken. Bike along the mile-long waterfront path along the Hudson River, or take a boat trip around New York harbor, taking in the city's most famous landmarks. From the mount of the Lincoln Tunnel, driving into Manhattan takes less than 10 minutes, and visitors to Weehawken can also get around using the New York Waterway ferry, New Jersey transit bus or the Hudson-Bergen light rail line. Enjoy shopping on Park Avenue, and walking along Boulevard East, a scenic thoroughfare with sweeping views of the Hudson River and Manhattan skyline.


Weehawken - a town for all seasons

One of the best times to visit Weehawken is spring, from April to June, when the temperatures are mild – although it can be prone to rain, so do pack an umbrella. Weehawken can get hot and humid during the summer months, and cold during the winter, with temperatures dropping down to the low 30s. But there's never a bad time to book a Weehawken vacation rental - this is the city that never sleeps, after all. Just make sure you book early for vacations during Thanksgiving and Christmas, when the entire New York metropolitan area can get very crowded.

Natural features

See Manhattan from high in Weehawken

Set on the western shore of the Hudson River, the town of Weehawken is located at the southern end of the Palisades, a 20 mile-long line of steep cliffs that run along the river. At Weehawken, they reach a height of 300ft, and from up here you'll get a spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline, particularly at sunset and sunrise. The view is uninterrupted thanks to local laws that prohibit the construction of high-rise buildings that could obstruct the view. Get the best views from Hamilton Park, which is within easy reach of downtown Weehawken vacation rentals.
