"Weehawken's location couldn't be finer. Ferries, highways, light rails — transit is abundant in this waterfront community."

— Walter Burns

Weehawken homes for sale hold a suburban, old style feel with historic buildings, communities and small town type neighborhood events; however, being only a stone's throw from New York City gives Weehawken real estate residents access to the most modern and upscale amenities, shopping, entertainment, and lifestyle.

Walter's Top Bayonne Picks

Chart House

Enjoying tongue-pleasing dishes in a terrific ambience can’t be beat. That is unless the NYC skyline is also staring back at you while you eat. Nice.

The Wood Shed

Being around for over 40 years usually indicates something special. A truer statement couldn’t be said regarding the ownership and the beautiful furniture sold here.

Hamilton Park

A park that caters to both the active and the relaxed. A dog park and sports courts as well. Tennis anyone?
