For a city that’s just over one square mile in size, Hoboken has earned more than its share of top tier designations including
- #1 Most Walkable City
- Best dining town in New Jersey from NJ Monthly Magazine
- Hoboken’s Pier A Park rated one of the top 10 urban parks in the country by the Urban Land Institute
- Top 10 College Town by the Princeton Review
- #1 City in Public Transportation Use by the U.S. Census
- Washington Street named one of America’s Top 10 Great Streets by the American Planning Association.
All these number ones add up to one sure thing: Hoboken is one great place to live. Home to crooner Frank Sinatra, photographer Dorothea Lange, TLC’s “Cake Boss” and site of the first baseball game* played in America, Hoboken today is a vibrant urban community, proud of its past, but firmly embracing the future. Residents enjoy visiting locally owned shops and restaurants, attending cultural events and festivals and savoring the beauty of the city’s parks. And, of course, all the attractions of Manhattan are just a short ride away, by ferry, PATH Train or bus.
