Exchange Place is sometimes referred to as “Wall Street West”. The Goldman Sachs Tower and other buildings are home to many financial corporations. The namesake is a minor street about 200 feet long on the Hudson River shore at the end of Montgomery St, which became well-known because it was a transportation terminal.
The neighborhood is served by the Exchange Place PATH station, which provides service to Newark, Hoboken, and Lower Manhattan. The area is also served by the Exchange Place station on the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, which provides northbound service to Hoboken Terminal and Tonnelle Avenue in North Bergen, and southbound service to West Side Avenue in Jersey City and 22nd Street in Bayonne.
