    Great train terminal for the inner "railien." Also a great spot at rush hour for bus spotting. Make sure to check out the rehabilitated Waiting Area! There is even good ferry spotting by the water for

    There are restrooms available inside the terminal building.

    Welcome to the first air-conditioned building in North America (1910). Trains used to run as far as Buffalo from here.

    You can get a quick hot dog at the window or inside at the place right next to the PATH stairwell inside the terminal.

    The pizza they sell there is actually really good!

    Increased fares and crappier service. Yuck.

    Seattle Cafe in the terminal has awesome coffee and breakfast sandwiches!

    Lovely. Yet there's a point — the secret bathroom here is one of the nicer public ones in lower Hoboken.

    If you just came from the city, turn around and go back.

    Quit your bitching people! Drive if ya don't like the service or prices!

    Fruit stand by the entrance to the PATH train is great. A little expensive but worth it in my mind.

    Dave Sala Della Cuna · June 3, 2010

    grab a hotdog and cold beverage at the Railhead.

    Tom Sauer · November 3, 2009
  • Chris L.

    Cold beer is only 3 bucks at the hotdog window. You can take on train.

    They a 20 oz. $2 for a soft drink here. Not obscene but the only non-entertainment venue I've encountered with this pricing.

    Best commute into NYC. You can see the entire Manhattan sky line as the sun rises. And who hates being near the ocean before going into work?!

    Why was Hoboken Terminal changed to NY Waterway?!

    Missed a train and have 45 minutes to wait? Walk outside to Pier A Park for the tremendous view of Manhattan (and, to the right, Jersey City's growing skyline).

    Navigate through the Commuter Cattle heard expeditiously to your next destination during rush hour.

    Apparently the Pascack Valley train now leaves from track 10 or 11 in the evening. #SprintFromThePATH

    Surprisingly clean bathrooms!

    Move all the way forward so that the people behind you are not stuck cramming onto the mini bridge waiting. Especially in the heat

    Eyes on the people around you instead of your celly! Everyone else is in a hurry!! :-)

    If you miss your train mad have 1/2 hour before the next one, head across the street to Teaks. 1/2 price drinks and food Mon & Thurs. Real nice atmosphere.

    The bathrooms harbor the homeless people. The conductors are unhelpful pricks. Leave the terminal to really experience hoboken. Bottom line its in jersey so expect scum bags. :)

    Adam Schouten · January 15, 2011
  • Adam S.

    The liquor store in terminal is ridiculously priced.

    Adam Schouten · November 13, 2010
  • Duncan M.

    That heady aroma of meatballs, chemicals and cheap cologne can only mean one thing. You're in New Jersey

    Duncan Milne · November 7, 2010
  • John S.

    Local train, so bring a good book, a long mix, or a movie.

    John Simpson · August 25, 2010

    The ferry is never on schedule during rush hour, so be prepared to wait / be late

    For the NEW Hoboken-to-39th St Ferry you can only purchase round trip ticket. And cash only at the moment.

    Just push your way to the front when the boat arrives. Only tourists try to wait politely on line.

  • James M R.

    There's a lot of bums

    Very bad food court but nice station

  • Kristopher L.

    The bar and "food court" needs some freakn attention. How about some proper tables and chairs???

    There are Bank of America ATM's right by Track 1 outside the deli.
