The Hudson Waterfront is in northeastern New Jersey along the lower reaches of the Hudson River, the Upper New York Bay and the Kill van Kull. Though the term can specifically mean the shoreline, it often used to mean the contiguous urban area between the Bayonne Bridge and the George Washington Bridge that is approximately 19 miles (31 km). The municaplities, in Hudson and Bergen Counties, are Bayonne, Jersey City, Hoboken, Union City, Weehawken, West New York, Guttenberg, North Bergen, Fairview. Cliffside Park, Edgewater, and Fort Lee. To the east lie the New York City boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn, to the south Staten Island, to the west Newark Bay and the New Jersey Meadowlands, and to the north Palisades Interstate Park. Historically the region has been known as Bergen Neck, the lower peninsula, and Bergen Hill, lower Hudson Palisades.
