Woodcliff, Fairview, Anderson Avenue and Bergenline Avenue, at the Bergen-Hudson county line.

Nungessers is the name of the confluence of roads that meet at the Hudson and Bergen county line at North Bergen and Fairview in northeastern New Jersey. The area is former site the Nungesser's Gutenberg Racetrack, a late 19th-century gaming and gambling venue.[1][2] The neighborhood just south of Nungesser's is called the Racetrack Section and the municipality of Guttenberg is nearby. A White Castle, an early drive-in fast-food chain, originally built in the 1930s has long been a landmark in the neighborhood,[3][4] as has adjacent North Hudson Park.[5]

Intersection[edit]

A major street that begins at Nungesser's is Bergenline Avenue which travelling south becomes the main shopping district of North Hudson. Just over the county line it becomes Anderson Avenue, travelling north through the urban eastern Bergen Hudson Palisades communities of Fairview, Cliffside Park and Fort Lee. The other roads which meet in the district are Kennedy Boulevard, Bergen Boulevard and Fairview Avenue from the west. To the east Boulevard East and Woodcliff Avenue connect to the northbound Palisade Avenue in the park.[6]

Transportation[edit]

Nungessers is a major transit transfer point and terminus for public bus transportation.[7] Several New Jersey Transit bus lines either originate/terminate or pass through the area, as do many privately operated jitney (dollar van) routes. Service from bus stops situated in the area travels to points in Hudson and Bergen and to the Port Authority Bus Terminal and the George Washington Bridge Bus Station in Manhattan.[8][9][10][11] Guaguas travel southbound to Boulevard East, Hudson County Courthouse, Newport Mall, 42nd Street (Manhattan), and northbound along Anderson Avenue to George Washington Bridge Plaza.[12]

Service[edit]

The 159 travels along busy Anderson-Bergenline corridor.
Dollar vans, or guaguas, augment NJT bus service.
Of the many busses passing Nungessers, the 181 is the only Manhattan-bound bus to terminate at GWB Station.
