Sightseeing is a favorite solitary pastime for many, and the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail is a great way to take in the beautiful Jersey City surroundings. Riding the light rail can be a calming way to clear the mine when preoccupied. It is a transportation option to get to neighboring cities instead of the bus or train. Serving multiple stations Northbound/Southbound between Hoboken and Tonnelle, the rail provides ample opportunities to flash photos of the serene city views.
South House is the newbie on the block of restaurant choices on Newark Avenue and Grove Street. What makes it a standout is not only its Southern cuisine, but its 3 story interior decorated with Blues Hall of Famer Dick Waterman’s photos including Jimi Hendrix, the Doors, and Janis Joplin. Come for the food and definitely stay for the live music and ambience. South House had a soft opening a couple of weeks ago and is already creating a buzz. The Fried Chicken, Corn and Potato Salad special is delicious!
