Building at site of former streetcar interchange at Transfer Station.

Transfer Station is the name of a district of Hudson County, New Jersey, which radiates from the intersection where Paterson Plank Road crosses Summit Avenue at 7th Street, and where the borders of Jersey City Heights, North Bergen, and Union City meet at one point.[1] It is a busy commercial district and transportation hub that was the 'downtown' of West Hoboken before its merger with Union Hill, resulting in the creation of Union City in 1925.[2]

The area takes its name from a former North Hudson Railway, and later Public Service Railway streetcar interchange.[2] Routes that crossed the area were the 15 Passaic, 17 Summit, 29 Hudson, and 35 Secaucus. New Jersey Transit bus routes 82 and 85[3] and Red and Tan 10/99s serve the district.

After the 1950s Transfer Station became somewhat of a red light district, filled with many taverns, nightclubs, discos, go-go bars, and 24-hour diners. Though some pubs remain, the area is essentially a local commercial/shopping area interspersed with residences.
