Hoboken is a city in Hudson County, New Jersey, United States. Located on the Hudson River, nestled between Jersey City, Union City and Weehawken, Hoboken is comprised of 1.25 square miles and is unofficially nicknamed the “Mile Square City”. Despite its small size, Hoboken stands on its own and is a popular next step for New York City dwellers, or anyone for that matter, looking for a small town feel while still having easy access to New York City.
Known as the birthplace of “Ol’ Blue Eyes” himself, Frank Sinatra, Hoboken is the location of the first recorded game of baseball and of the Stevens Institute of Technology, one of the oldest technological universities in the United States.
Hoboken experienced an explosion in real estate starting in the early 2000’s with home values skyrocketing. Brownstones were renovated and luxury 12 story buildings were built on the outskirts of town, now dubbed the coveted Hoboken Waterfront. In more recent years, efforts have been placed on building green space to slow the development and allow for more recreational space for the residents. This plus its vibrant nightlife and diverse restaurants, it’s no wonder why this is a popular next stop for city dwellers.
Getting around and in and out of Hoboken couldn’t be easier. The transportation options are endless plus many of the luxury buildings offer shuttle service to the PATH and Hoboken Terminal. The Hoboken Terminal is a major transportation hub for the tri-state region, connecting you to the NY Waterway ferry terminal, the PATH train, NJ Transit bus service and The Hudson-Bergen Light Rail Transit System. Uptown also offers a separate NY Waterway ferry terminal at 14th Street going to 39th Street and Brookfield Place.
