BUSES FROM NYC:
NJ TANSIT: If you are coming from New York, you can take a bus at Port Authority Terminal (NJ Transit #s 121, 123, 124/129,144, 154, 163,167). You will need to buy a ticket in advance for Weehawken at the NJ Transit window. Get off at the Park Avenue stop, which is the first stop.
There are also a coupe of jitneys that depart across from Port Authority.
BLVD EAST Jitney departs on 42nd St. in front of the Burger King (Btw 8th and 9th Aves). Tell the driver you want to get off at the first stop in front of the Speedway gas station. Make sure to remind the driver after you get out of the Lincoln Tunnel to stop at the gas station. The cost of the bus is $3.25 each way. Once out of the 'Blvd East' bus, you will be on Boulevard East. Cross Boulevard East, walk left on Blvd East to the first intersection (it's a busy segue onto the highway), make a right turn and walk up one block. At the first intersection, look to your right and you will see a Medieval style building which is the Weehawken Library. That is Hauxhurst Street. Cross over to the library and walk straight down Hauxhurst, past the library. The Wilson School is almost immediately on your right.
