Roving in Hoboken
Our roving photographer, Nicole Freezer Rubens, takes us to the city of Hoboken NJ which has a lot of personality. Its nickname is The Mile Square City and it’s packed tightly with a population of 60 thousand people. It is easily accessible from Manhattan on the Path train. Hoboken is best known as the birthplace and hometown of Frank Sinatra, with many parks and streets named after Ol’ Blue Eyes. It is also the place where baseball and the waffle cone were born.
The city has morphed over time from an industrial area that included the great American classics Maxwell House Coffee, Lipton Tea, Hostess Cupcakes and Wonder Bread, to a trendy residential neighborhood. Hoboken today has many cute shops, a phenomenal waterfront with an incredible view of the magnificent Manhattan skyline, and an abundance of community events and traditions that make it feel like a quaint small town.
