About the Greenville Neighborhood
Greenville lies at the southernmost tip of Jersey City. This area is mostly residential and is made up mainly of one and two-family homes.
Greenville is at the cusp of revitalization. Currently, a $20 million City Hall Annex is being built at Martin Luther King Drive which will bring hundreds of jobs and foot traffic to the area. Canal Crossing is a 111-acre area that has been rezoned for residential and commercial use. There are plans for a Greenway and 7,000 mid-rise housing units.
Attractions include the Afro-American Historical and Cultural Society Museum, Mercer Park, The Cochrane Athletic Field and the Caven Point Section of Liberty State Park. The Hudson River Waterfront Walkway also runs through this area, with ample opportunities for biking or running.
At the southwestern corner of Greenville, you will find the 1960’s community of Country Village, known as “suburbia in the city.”
The exclusive Port Liberte community has its own NY Waterway ferry terminal. The Liberty National Golf Club in this area was home to the 2013 Barclays Tournament.
In addition to being car and bicycle-friendly, there are multiple buses to take you into the city or to other parts of Jersey City. There are several accessible HBLR Light Rail stations, including MLK, Richard Street, and Danforth Avenue.
Like all of Jersey City, Greenville has a strong sense of community and the arts. Project Greenville offers creative locals a chance to share their work and get to know their neighbors.
