Background on the Venue:
The CRRNJ is a historic destination located along the Liberty State Park waterfront, which helped solidify Jersey City as “The Gateway to the West.”
An average of 5,000- 7,000 immigrants were processed each day on Ellis Island, and many of them then traveled west through the Central Railroad Terminal. During the peak era of the CRRNJ (1890-1929), between commuters and immigrants, some 30,000 – 50,000 people passed through the terminal on a daily basis. The CRRNJ continued running up until its bankruptcy in 1967.
There are rumors that the terminal of is actually haunted by a girl named Emily, and there were even reports of a ghost train that traveled for 22 miles with no one on board. If we’re going to party, we’re going to do it right – in a haunted terminal on Halloween.
From 4 PM to 8 PM, we’ll have the family portion of the event hosted by JC Families! Bring your kids to a Halloween dance party with family-friendly activities, face painting, a bouncy castle, and a photo booth. There’ll also be a costume contest, so make sure your kids are all dressed up!
From 9 PM to 2 AM, CRRNJ will transform from its family-friendly theme to a haunted train station for adults 21+. We’ll have 4 of the best DJs in JC and an MC for the night! There’ll be actors dressed up in vintage outfits ready to give you all a scare, a haunted hallway, and a performance by actors. Take photos in our photo booth with Halloween props, and wear your best costume for the costume contest! Winner gets a prize.
We’ll have food trucks along the night to satisfy your hunger and a bar to help you kick back and enjoy the night.
To stay up-to-date as we continue planning and get closer to the date, keep up with the event on Facebook, invite your friends, and share it on social media!
