With the rising popularity of everything even remotely "Hamilton"-related, you could say that it was only a matter of time before Hamilton Park in Jersey City began reaping the benefits.

As you may have guessed, the neighborhood is centered around a park, which was named after the Founding Father and dates back to the mid-1800s. It has new residential developments with lots of amenities, as well as restaurants and outdoor attractions.

The area is chock-full of tree-lined streets and 19th century brownstones that surround the five-acre park, which offers community programs such as outdoor movie screenings in the summer, sports leagues, and even Shakespeare plays. It has two tennis courts, a basketball court, two dog parks, a handful of playgrounds, and a splash area.

New luxury rental properties in the nabe include Revetment House, an industrial-chic building with amenities that include a dog run, fitness center, landscaped deck with a BBQ area, outdoor playground, and shuttle service to the PATH station; and 485 Marin, which offers an outdoor pool with a sundeck, residents’ lounge, and public park with walking paths, a playground, dog run, and picnic areas.

Plans are also in the works for MGM Marin Boulevard, which will bring 482 rental units, 121 parking spaces, and a 14,000-square-foot amenity space to Hamilton Park in 2022.

New eateries have opened their doors as well, including Van Hook Cheese Outpost, a walk-up sandwich counter from the folks at Jersey City’s Van Hook Cheese; and Tacos Victoria, which serves an extensive menu of tacos, burritos, sopes, quesadillas, fajitas, and more.

The neighborhood is a 14-minute walk to the Grove Street PATH station, and then it's 20 minutes to 33rd Street in Manhattan. You can also take the ferry.
