Marin Boulevard is a HBLR station located towards the southern end of downtown Jersey City right along the Hudson Waterfront. New development is finally coming to the area, so it is now right near a construction site. The station is located right after the street running portion of Essex Street, Essex Street ends and the light rail line begins to run along its own right of way, which the tracks use for the rest of their journeys south to Bayonne and West Side Avenue. The station itself only has entrances at the eastern end(north) end of each of the simple side platforms at the grade crossing of Marin Blvd. The platofrms have paving inserts by Wopo Holup. The tops of the single canopy on each platform has weathervanes by Tom Nussbaum. A street has recently been built north of the station platforms for to serve a new high-rise apartment tower, but the Bayonne-bound platform is still entirely fenced in, between the platform and the new sidewalk. (Google Earth shows no street there yet and just a vacant lot). The area around the station has definitely changed quite a bit in the Light Rail's eight years of operation.
