This four-story townhouse on the New Jersey waterfront looks straight across the Hudson River and right down the middle of 42nd Street in Midtown Manhattan.
“The only thing between you and Manhattan is the water,” said listing agent Jessica Williams, of Christie’s International Real Estate Northern New Jersey – Hoboken. “It’s as close as you can get, without being in Manhattan.”
“You can literally see all of the lights from Times Square, the billboards and all of the car lights,” she said. “You get all of Midtown, all of downtown, and Hudson Yards—you get all of that, too.”

The floor-through townhouse is in the Henley on Hudson community of luxury condominium apartments and townhouses, Ms. Williams said.
The owner bought the townhouse in 2017 “after looking for seven years for the perfect waterfront view—and he found it,” she said. “All of the realtors knew him. He came to all of the open houses.”
Townhouses are very sought after here, Ms. Williams said. This is the largest one in the community.
After buying the unit, the owner spent three years on a top-to-bottom gut renovation, she said.

The bottom floor features a private entry, a heated two-car garage, a mudroom and a large recreation room with heated terrazzo marble flooring.
A new stairwell takes you up to the second floor, which holds the open-plan living room, dining area and kitchen.
“It’s all open,” Ms. Williams said. “You can see the Manhattan skyline from anywhere on this level.”
The eat-in kitchen features an island with a waterfall marble slab, a balcony, custom white oak cabinetry and appliances by Sub-Zero, Wolf, Fisher Paykel and Miele.
Other architectural and design details in the home include concrete subflooring with rubber soundproofing, floating walls and ceilings, integrated and invisible speakers and HVAC vents, herringbone white oak floors, shadow moldings, face recognition security and mitered-edge stonework.
The third floor holds two large bedrooms, including the primary suite, which has two walk-in closets and the same open views of the Manhattan skyline.
There are two more bedrooms on the fourth floor, one of which has a balcony.

The 3,800-square-foot home has four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and two partial bathrooms.
Along with the great Manhattan views, amenities include a two-car garage, an elevator to all four floors, a large fireplace in the living room, smart-home technology and two balconies.
Henley on Hudson amenities include a concierge, 24-hour security, a swimming pool, three fitness centers, saunas, a children’s playroom and a cinema.
The Hudson River Waterfront Walkway now connects Weehawken to the adjacent city of Hoboken, which has lots of shops and popular restaurants.
“Weehawken is becoming an extension of uptown Hoboken,” Ms. Williams said. “You can walk or bike to dinner in Hoboken, and Weehawken now has some new restaurants.”
It’s an easy walk to a Whole Foods supermarket and the NY Waterway ferry, “and then it’s an 8-minute ride across the water to Manhattan,” she said.
The townhouse is also within walking distance of a new municipal swimming pool and spray park on the waterfront in Weehawken, she said.
