Double Dyme Tavern, an upscale dive bar with craft cocktails, opened in South Amboy this summer as part of the extensive $500 million redevelopment of its waterfront.
The Oscar-winning actress and Millburn native Anne Hathaway is on location in New Jersey for the second time over the last several months.
The City of South Amboy is one of two Middlesex County communities still looking to move forward with plans to bring back ferry service to Manhattan.
The development’s first phase will be adding 291 apartments along the Raritan Bay waterfront, which is set see further revitalization via a new ferry terminal.
The final stages of planning for a 20,000-square-foot ferry terminal to be built along the Raritan River are underway and the project could be put out to bid later this year.
