Q. I’ve never been to Jersey City, how do I get there?
It’s easy! If you are coming from Manhattan and the World Trade Center you can take the PATH train to Exchange Place – it’s about a 3-minute ride and you can use a MetroCard.
[note: WTC is closed on Saturday and Sunday this year – ugh – but you can take NY Waterway ferries from Brookside Place to Harborside or Paulus Hook]
You can also take the 33rd street PATH to the Grove Street station, then either walk 5 blocks down Christopher Columbus toward Manhattan or change to a PATH to Exchange Place.
The Hyatt Regency is also less than 2 blocks from the Hudson-Bergen LightRail.
And driving is easy – just put 2 Christopher Columbus Drive in your GPS.
Q. Where can I park?
There is some street parking in the area, and more than 3,000 spaces in nearby parking lots and garages.
Thanks to the generosity of our Platinum sponsors Mack-Cali Realty and the Exchange Place Alliance, Art Fair 14C visitors can park for $5 at the Harborside 4A parking garage – entrance is on the north side of Christopher Columbus Drive, between Washington and Greene Streets, just a block and a half from the Hyatt or at Harborside 5 parking garage at 160 Greene Street.
Q. How much time will it take me to go through the fair?
If you spend 5 minutes in each exhibition room, plus another 10 minutes looking at the Juried Show, that’s almost 5 hours. Luckily there’s plenty of food and refreshment available on the 9th floor! In addition, all Art Fair 14C visitors get 20% off in the Hyatt’s lobby bar and restaurant.
Q. Is Art Fair 14C kid friendly?
Yes, though there may well be works of art on display that will provoke some interesting dialogue between parent and child. Kids under 16 are admitted free of charge with an accompanying adult. There is a kids’ scavenger hunt activity sheet available upon check in.
Q. I am an artist – how do I participate in next year’s Art Fair 14C?
We’ll be announcing the application deadlines later this spring for the 2021 Art Fair 14C, which will be held February 19-21, 2021. The deadlines will be in late fall.
We’ll be resuming our Road Trip this spring – doing studio and gallery visits around the state of New Jersey…and beyond. We’ll have a form to sign up if you’d like us to visit you.
