Harsimus Cove is one of the three cornerstone historic districts in downtown Jersey City that has driven the city’s renaissance since the 1980’s. Harsimus Cove sits between the Hamilton Park and Van Vorst Park historic districts and includes lower Newark Avenue, the main street for the downtown community. Although primarily residential in nature, Harsimus Cove now includes the highly successful Restaurant Row and the busy Grove Street Path transportation hub.


In 2011, Jersey City responded to the local business community’s push to establish a major expansion of Restaurant Row. Today, a large swatch of lower Newark Avenue and the surrounding blocks are in Restaurant Row. Establishments have special entertainment and liquor licenses, allowing them to be zoned for concerts and other events. Restaurant Row has become a highly successful dining and entertainment district, serving not just Jersey City and Hoboken, but northern New Jersey as well.
