Public Transportation:
From Manhattan, the PATH runs along 6th Ave., stopping at 33rd St., 23rd, 14th, 9th, and Christopher, before entering Hoboken. There is also a PATH station at World Trade Center, Trinity Street in lower Manhattan. Make sure you get on the train marked "Hoboken." At Hoboken, the PATH station is at the intersection of River Rd. and Observer highway. Walk west (away from the Erie Lackawanna Railroad station) to Hudson St. At Hudson, turn right to Newark (1 block), and continue west to Park Ave. Turn right on Park. The Synagogue is on the right-hand side of Park, between 1st and 2nd streets.

From the Port Authority, take the NJ Transit to Hoboken. The platform changes depending on the time - an information booth is on the first floor and the 3rd floor. The cost is $2.65 ($1.15 for seniors): you must have exact change, but they take dollar bills. The bus goes south on Washington St. Get off at the corner of 2nd St. Walk west 3 blocks to Park Ave. Turn left. The Synagogue is 3 of the way down the street, on the left-hand side.

From Jersey City, take the PATH or the Light Rail from Exchange Place, Grove Street or Newport. See instructions above for PATH from Manhattan.

Driving from the west:
Take the NJ Turnpike towards the Lincoln Tunnel. Take a right at the sign "Last Exit in NJ." There will also be a sign marked "Hoboken," and "Ferry to NYC." You will drive up over a slight rise, and then down to a light. At the light, stay to the right. (The left goes back to Rte 3 to the Tunnel.) Go down a steep hill, and turn right at the bottom. The turnpike is overhead.

Continue straight, going over the Park Ave. Bridge. On the Hoboken side of the bridge, you will be at the corner of 16th St. and Park Ave. Drive south 2 blocks to 14 St. -- on the north-west corner is a gas station; on the south-west corner is the Malibu Diner. Turn right onto 14 St., left onto Willow St. Continue south about 1 mile to First St. Turn left onto First, turn left onto Park. The Synagogue is the second building on the right.

Driving from the Lincoln or Holland Tunnels:
From the Lincoln Tunnel: When you go into the Tunnel, get into the right-most lane. Immediately upon emerging from the tunnel, take the exit on the right marked "Hoboken." Continue for about 1 mile, going over a bridge. You will be on Willow Avenue. Continue on Willow Avenue for almost the entire length of Hoboken (from 14th Street down to 1st Street). Turn left on 1st Street, and then the next left onto Park. The synagogue is the second building on the right.

From the Holland Tunnel: when you exit the tunnel, stay to the right-hand lane. Take the first right -- Marin Blvd. There is a gas station on the corner. Continue north about a mile. At the same time you go under an overhead train tracks, the road turns to the right. You are on Observer Highway. Continue about 5 blocks to Park Ave. Turn left - the Synagogue is on the right-hand side slightly north of the intersection of Park and First St.

From the South: Take the New Jersey Turnpike to Exit 14-C, the Holland Tunnel. Take the first opportunity to turn left at Jersey Avenue, before the Holland Tunnel toll plaza. Follow the road as it curves around under an overpass inscribed with the word “Hoboken” and becomes Observer Highway. Continue through the light at the intersection with Willow Avenue, and make the next left (not at a light) onto Park Avenue. The synagogue is on Park Avenue between 1st and 2nd Streets, on the right side.

General information:
There is very little on-street parking in Hoboken. Streets labeled "resident parking only" mean it! If you park there without a Hoboken sticker, your car will be booted.

Starting from the Hudson River and going west, the named north-south streets are: River Rd., Hudson St., Washington St. (the main drag), Bloomfield St., Garden St., Park Ave., Willow St., Clinton St., Grand St.

The east-west streets are almost all numbered, starting from the south at Observer Highway, Newark St., First St., Second St., etc.

With the exception of Washington St., Park Ave. north of 14 St., Willow St. north of 11 St., and 11 St., all streets in Hoboken are one-way. Garden goes south, Park goes north, Willow goes south.
