477 Jersey Avenue, located in the Heart of Van Vorst Park –
One of the grandest brownstones in downtown Jersey City. Custom built in 1887 for an ambassador, once one of Jersey City’s finest single-family mansions.

The basement has full ceiling heights with laundry area, and ample storage.
The 2 apartments above, 2nd & 3rd floors, are flooded with sunlight with approximately 10 windows on each level. Each have formal dining rooms, spacious living rooms, and lovely original detail throughout. Both kitchens have been recently renovated, one brand new with stainless steel appliances, granite and breakfast bar.
