Grove Street is a PATH station at the junction of Grove Street, Newark Avenue and Railroad Avenue in Jersey City, New Jersey. Opened on September 6, 1910 as Grove-Henderson Streets station, it is situated in the heart of downtown Jersey City. The station is served by the Newark – World Trade Center and Journal Square – 33rd Street trains.

Layout

Originally the station had exits at either end. The western stair led to the intersection of Grove Street and Newark Avenue and a simple kiosk underneath the Pennsylvania Railroad's mainline viaduct, which ran above what is now Christopher Columbus Drive. The station's easterly end exited to Henderson Street (now Marín Boulevard). The railroad viaduct was taken down in the late 1960s, and the station was reconfigured in the 1970s. As part of the reconstruction, the eastern and western exits were closed in favor of a mezzanine situated in a triangle formed by the intersections of Grove Street, Newark Avenue, and Columbus Drive. Two stairways from the platform level connect to the mezzanine, with fare turnstiles at the top of each stairway. Two exits lead to street level; one, with escalators, leads to the station's primary kiosk, while the other is a stairway that leads to the south side of Columbus Drive.

As a result of an increase in ridership, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ) reopened the easterly exit and built a second kiosk at the corner of Columbus Drive and Marín Boulevard. Despite the fact that construction eastern entrance/exit of took place between 2003–2005, the station was not made compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.[1] In September 2011 a federal judge found that it was technically feasible to do so and ordered the PANYNJ provide handicapped-access.[2][3]

The intersection is a busy stop for buses, most of which head west and south.
