Welcome to Hoboken

About


One only needs to take a short stroll down Hoboken’s main thoroughfare, Washington Street, to find that this square-mile city boasts more than meets the eye. While this road may only run about a mile, it’s bustling from dusk to dawn, giving this town a “big city” feel with “small town” vibes. Throughout Hoboken, you’ll discover some of the best views of Manhattan in Hudson County along the waterfront, hundreds of off-the-charts restaurants, charming boutiques and a renowned nightlife scene. With seemingly endless options, there’s something for everyone.

Don’t let this city’s small size confuse you… this town boasts a population of over 52,000 residents! But, it hasn’t always been that way. After the Revolutionary War, Hoboken came into the hands of Colonel John Stevens, who cultivated the area into a retreat for wealthy Manhattanites and created the first commercial steam ferry to transport them. With the success of the ferry system, Hoboken became a terminus point for shipping and shortly after a railroad terminal was built nearby on the waterfront, thus laying the groundwork for this well connected city today!

Transportation


Did you know that Hoboken has the highest percentage of transit ridership of any city in the country? It is! With several convenient modes of transportation, from the PATH, Ferry and Light Rail to the NJ Transit buses and train, this square-mile city is bustling with commuters traveling to the Big Apple or around Hudson County. For a shorter commute, Hoboken utilizes the Hudson Bike Share, allowing residents to “rent” a bike and make a quick trip around the city. Finally, for those who prefer a private ride, Hoboken is served by ZipCar, letting you pick up and drop off your rental at several convenient locations around town.
