Hoboken - The Mile Square City
"Hoboken: more than a City, a Neighborhood" is the slogan adopted by the City of Hoboken, and for anyone who has visited this charming Square mile community, it certainly seems appropriate. With beautiful panoramic views of the New York City Skyline, Historic Brownstones, Thriving neighborhoods, Convenience to Transportation, Cobblestone streets, Beautiful Churches, Italian Bakeries, Specialty shops, Fine Restaurants and cafes, Hoboken has established itself as the place to be in New Jersey. The small town feel in an urban setting has attracted Young Professionals and Families from all over NJ, Wall Street, and other parts of New York. The move to Hoboken is on!
Bordered by the Hudson River and the Palisades, and centered between the Holland and Lincoln Tunnels, Hoboken is just one square mile. One can walk to everything, yet the city is also a transportation Hub; with easy access to The Path Train, NY Waterway Ferries, and the Erie Lackawanna Train Terminal.
Hoboken has a rich History, and quickly established itself as a major Rail and Water Transportation Center serving as a port for all the Important Transatlantic Shipping lines. Long known as the birthplace of Frank Sinatra, Hoboken also has the distinction of being known as the birthplace of Baseball.
No longer a thriving Port Facility, Hoboken has undergone a renaissance to a residential community where children play Hopscotch on the sidewalks, and people gather on their front steps. Due to its rapid growth in the early Nineteen Hundreds, Hoboken has a mix of cultures, each with its own festivals, music, and businesses. This ethnic diversity gives Hoboken a vibrancy and energy rare in a city its size.
Sidewalk cafes, period buildings, street fairs, and a busy street life combine to make the Mile Square City a most colorful and distinctive urban square mile.
