Move to Newport

Jul 16, 2020

So you’re in the market for a new apartment. You want an apartment that is spacious, with plenty of room for storage. You’re hoping for some outdoor amenities, too, and closeness to transportation. What would really be the cherry on top is not just living in an apartment building, but really feeling like a part of a community. 

Well, look no further. Newport has all of the above and much, much more. Read on to find out why Newport is considered one of the most sought after communities on the Hudson waterfront!


Location, Location, Location

Want city views? We’ve got them! Newport is located directly across the Hudson River from Manhattan. That means unobstructed views of the greatest city in the world from the Newport Waterfront or even directly from your living room.

And it’s not just the close proximity to New York City that makes Newport a sought after community. Newport is also located in Jersey City, which offers award-winning restaurants, top tier entertainment and endless activities. Hoboken, the neighboring city, is only a short walk away and also offers great dining and entertainment options.

Newport’s convenience doesn’t stop there. Newport has a Morton Williams grocery store, diner, wine & liquor store, pizzeria, Starbucks and Duane Reade all in Newport proper, just to name a few of our businesses. No need to haul groceries and other essential items on the subway or down many blocks - everything you need is literally right around the corner.


Getting There

No matter where you’re going, Newport offers many different transportation options to get you where you need to go. 

The PATH is a common option for New York City commuters. A PATH ride from Newport to the World Trade Center can be as quick as 15 minutes. The PATH can also connect you to NJ Transit, which can drop you right at the Jersey Shore! Talk about the perfect weekend getaway.

There’s also the NY Waterway ferry to the city which you can pick up in Hoboken or in Paulus Hook. The NJ Transit Light Rail connects neighboring New Jersey waterfronts, and Newport has its own station at the Newport Centre Mall. Last, but certainly not least, Citibike also has a presence in Newport. Citibike is perfect for a short trip to your favorite Jersey City destination or as a daytime activity with friends.


Beautiful, Updated Apartments

Newport offers stylish and updated residences. Our apartments are modern and spacious, with appliances to match. All apartments include individual climate control for your comfort and select apartments include washer/dryer units for your ease. The Ellipse building offers the most luxurious details, with dual-tone cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, white quartz countertops and Chelsea oak floors throughout.

Amenities Galore

No matter the building, all Newport residences have access to our unparalleled amenities. Start the day at one of our playgrounds, then meet up with friends on Newport Green. In the summer enjoy feeling the sand between your toes at Newport Beach, and in the winter lace up your skates and hit the ice rink in Elephant Park. Go for a stroll along the Newport Waterfront after dinner and enjoy watching the sunset next to the LeFrak Lighthouse. Enjoy an entire fun and eventful day only steps away from your door.


More Than Apartment Buildings

Newport prides itself on being more than apartment buildings. We offer events for residents of all ages, ranging from beach parties to cocktail making classes. Some of the events are building specific so you can get to know your immediate neighbors, while other events are Newport-wide. Newport also comes together digitally, with an active Facebook and Instagram page where we share resident photos and even run monthly contests.
