Welcome to Edgewater! NJ 5 descends a steep cliff that separates the waterfront along the Hudson River from the rest of New Jersey. Since the cliff is too steep to go directly to the east here, NJ 5 descends it through a switchback, curving to the north and gradually heading down. The George Washington Bridge (I-95/US 1/US 9) is visible in the distance.
