The closest train station is NJ Transit Secaucus Junction. www.secaucusjunction.com

The station is common to a whole bunch of train routes (it's the second station out of Penn Station NY). As an example, check out the Northeast corridor schedule.

The station has a pick up and drop off point for taxis and buses, but I haven't determined the distance between the two yet.

The NJ Transit bus number you need is listed on the AnimeNext website (http://www.animenext.org) in the location page if you want to go by bus.
