How to Reach the City of Hoboken NJ
Hoboken is approximately one square mile in area and is located on the New Jersey bank of the Hudson River between the Holland and Lincoln Tunnels.

For Public Transportation

From New York BUS:
Take NJ Transit Bus No. 126, from the Port Authority Bus Terminal at 8th Ave. and 40th Street. The bus goes directly to Hoboken and travels down Washington Street. From New York City, buses stop on even numbered streets. Please exit at 6th Street and walk south one block to Fifth Street, then turn right and proceed three blocks west to Park Ave.

Take Port Authority Trans Hudson (PATH) subway, marked Hoboken. Stations are located on 6th Avenue at 33rd, 23rd, 14th, and 9th Streets, and at Christopher and Hudson Streets. PATH trains are also accessible from the World Trade Center. Once in Hoboken take a local Washington Street bus.

From Points West of the Hudson River

Connections may be made in Journal Square, Jersey City, for Downtown Bus no. 5-6 marked Jersey City-Weehawken, to Washington Street in Hoboken. Northbound buses on Washington Street stop on odd number streets. Exit at 5th Street and walk three blocks west.

Many NJ Transit trains stop in Hoboken. Other NJ Transit and Amtrak train lines stop in Newark. From Newark, Mon through Fri, take a PATH train to Exchange Place, Jersey City, and switch to the Hoboken train, as explained above. On weekends, check the PATH Schedules as there is no direct service between Hoboken and World Trade Center at certain times. If that is the case, then please board a World Trade Center bound train, and transfer at Journal Square, Jersey City, for a PATH train marked Hoboken/33rd St.


From New York City via the Lincoln Tunnel:

Upon exiting the tunnel, follow the signs to Hoboken. From the North tube of the tunnel, bear to the extreme right and go through the underpass marked Hoboken. This places you Southbound on Willow Avenue, one block west and parallel to Park Avenue.

From New Jersey and points South and West of Hoboken:
Take the NJ Turnpike to Exit 16E (if coming from the South) or Exit 17
(if coming from the North, New England, and West) toward the Lincoln Tunnel. At the sign marked "Last Exit in New Jersey" (Weehawken, Hoboken), exit to the right and turn right at the second traffic signal.

From Upper New York State and New England:
Take the New York State Thruway to the Garden State Parkway South. Get off at Exit 153 and take Route 3 East towards the Lincoln Tunnel. At the "Last Exit In New Jersey" sign, exit right and turn right at the second traffic signal. This places you Southbound on Park Avenue.

Once in Hoboken
On Willow Ave., proceed south and make a left at 5th Street. The library is located at the corner of Park Ave. and 5th Street.
