Often overshadowed by its famous neighbour, Hoboken is a vibrant square mile city across the river from Manhattan, New York. Situated on the banks of the Hudson River in New Jersey, directly opposite Manhattan’s trendy meatpacking district, Hoboken is just one square mile long, bursting with culture and an ever growing arts scene. A popular dwelling place for designers, artists and writers who take inspiration from the uncompromised views of New York, the city is becoming increasingly fashionable. Despite being somewhat dwarfed by the more widely known city across the river, Hoboken has its fair share of claims to fame. It is the birthplace Frank Sinatra, inventor of freeze-dried coffee and home to the first ever organized baseball game. This cosmopolitan square mile city is lined with bars and restaurants and was in fact rated the best dining town in New Jersey by NJ Monthly Magazine. Local boutiques, delicious bakeries (including the home place of TV’s Cake Boss), and a beautiful tree lined waterfront are amongst Hoboken’s many other offerings. Hoboken is an incredibly dynamic little city, influenced by many different cultures such as Dutch, German, Hispanic and Asian Indian, which shows in its worldwide cuisine offerings and architecture. With excellent transport links direct into Manhattan, and easy access to New York’s three major airports, Hoboken is ideally located for leisure or business travellers. A regular ferry runs straight across the river to Chelsea Piers or down to New York’s financial district, and the PATHS train is easily accessible from subway system.
