Historically the commercial center of Jersey City, Journal Square is home to numerous neighborhood amenities including eating and drinking establishments, banks and shopping. The historic Loew’s Jersey Theatre, one of the six original “Wonder Theatres” from the 1920s, is directly around the corner from Elks Club JSQ and offers a variety of cinema and live shows.


For most of the twentieth century, Journal Square was the cultural entertainment center of Hudson County. From the 1920s to the 1960s, Journal Square was described as a “crown jewel, a glowing commercial, entertainment and transportation hub of the city.”


When it comes to convenience, you can’t beat Journal Square. The Journal Square Transportation Center is literally steps away from the front door of Elks Club JSQ and offers PATH train service into both Lower and Midtown Manhattan around the clock. Additionally, the Journal Square Transportation Center houses a major bus station providing service into New York City and many New Jersey locations including direct service to Newark Liberty International Airport.
