Real estate investor Mack Cali also announced another draw for Smorgasburg visitors: Called Ziggy, a unique and pretty trippy art installation by Hou de Sousa, it was recently added to the Atrium at Harborside. It’s a big win for the already art-filled city, coined NYC’s “6th Borough” for good reason. Pro tip: Jersey City is filled with interesting restaurants, shops, culture and views for days—if you haven’t day-tripped there yet, what are you waiting for?
Which food vendors will be at Smorgasburg Jersey City?
If you’re dreaming of walking alongside the Manhattan skyline with a tasty taco, some finger-licking good BBQ, a hearty sandwich, or a slice in hand, you’re in luck. Eater reports that expected food vendors from both New Jersey and NYC include Berg’s Pastrami, Big Mozz, Bisska, C Bao, Carlitos Barbecue Taqueria, D’Abruzzo, Duck Season, Oyster Party, and Wood-Fired Edibles. Smorgasburg is expected to release details on more Jersey City location food vendors next week.
How to get to Smorgasburg Jersey City
The outdoor portion of the festival will operate out of a large parking lot located at 195 Hudson Street in JC. Folks traveling to Smorg can arrive by PATH trains to Exchange Place, by New Jersey Transit Light Rail to the Harborside stop, by car, or by bicycle—with Citibike already operating in Jersey City and neighboring Hoboken. “But never underestimate the power of a ferry ride to turn a boring day into an adventure,” Demby says, referring to the quick NY Waterway ferries that whisk riders across the Hudson to Jersey City in minutes from multiple points in Manhattan.
Smorgasburg Jersey City will be open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. every Saturday through October at least, a rep tells us. See you there?
