This area only now is becoming tourist friendly. It used to be strictly business wall street type environment. Once the whole bonanza with tourists will really kick off the whole area will be very busy. as of now I have to say there are very few restaurants or stores close to these skyscrapers. It is still waiting for the right developer to build these. If you step merely two blocks away from the river edge - there are lots and lots of empty spaces there so no problem with where to put stores and restaurants. Just give it time.

great shots. The facade of 2 IFC in HongKong looks exactly like this one of the high tower in NJ.

Absolutely yes - it is because the architect is the same guy - Cezar Pelli. HK tower is just much higher. And just so we on the same page - he is proposing another tower in SF (Transbay tower) which will be the third clone of the Jersey City one which was the first one.
