Hoboken is a unique, vibrant, walk able urban community just over one square mile in size. But don’t let the small size fool you.

As you experience Hoboken you will see that Hoboken truly reflects the American experience. Many cultures
from around the world have left an imprint, and they are still celebrated today.

From the city’s first recorded mention in 1609 by the navigator of Henry Hudson’s “Half Moon,” Hoboken has welcomed the Dutch, the Germans, the Italians, the Hispanics, the Asian Indians and others whose traditions have influenced our community.
Today, you will see a dynamic and vibrant city; one that still embraces the past but has also evolved into a dynamic residential, cultural, commercial, educational and tourist destination.

Drawing on its roots as the birthplace of baseball and Frank Sinatra, today Hoboken is home of TLC Network’s top rated “The Cake Boss,” as well as many community events, including cultural, music and ethnic festivals.

Much abounds in the music and arts community, complimented by eclectic restaurants, night clubs, a world class hotel, diverse retail shopping, along with a spectacular waterfront with uncompromising views of Manhattan and New York Harbor.

Today, Hoboken is known as a vibrant urban destination, embracing its rich history and offering considerable cultural, recreational and commercial development.

The city is known for its many festivals and breath-taking views of Manhattan. It is an educational Mecca, thanks to the Stevens family who chartered Stevens Institute of Technology.

Hoboken has been shaped into a city of unique character; a character that will live long into the future.
