Welcome to Hoboken
Where walkable, safe, and lively luxury living awaits
Along the banks of the Hudson River, a mere hop, skip, and a jump away from Manhattan's West Village and Chelsea, Hoboken is a quintessential haven of luxury. As a melting pot of modern energy and old-fashioned charm with easy access to downtown and midtown Manhattan, it's no surprise that this New Jersey city is quickly becoming one of the most desirable places to live in the nation. And thanks to its incredible history — from where Major League Baseball was developed in 1846 to when Frank Sinatra settled down in the early 20th century — Hoboken represents quaint Americana blended with advanced urbanism. Indeed, this New Jersey community has come a long way from its modest beginnings as a resort area and residential town to the bustling urban oasis of luxury living it is today.
Local living spaces range from upscale condominiums and townhomes with sensational views to spacious single-family homes and brownstones on tree-lined streets, while abundant public parks and green spaces (35 parks totaling 53 acres of space to be exact) offer a peaceful respite amid bustling city life. This combination of sophisticated urban living and ample outdoor spaces makes Hoboken a sought-after location for cosmopolitan city dwellers desiring an exclusive lifestyle experience.
What to Love
- Postcard-worthy vistas
- Urban convenience meets green space serenity
- Lively dining, entertainment, and nightlife scenes
Hoboken is a mecca of dynamic culture and indulgent experiences. With its vibrant riverfront lined with luxurious restaurants, bars, and shops, it's no surprise the locale exudes an air of joyful indulgence. And with world-class shopping and cultural landmarks in easy proximity, residents are spoiled for choice in terms of entertainment possibilities. From laid-back comedy clubs to lively festivals on the riverbank, it all adds up to an infectious vibe that keeps Hoboken locals in love with their city.
Hoboken's population is younger than that of the national average, with the city drawing a large number of Millennials and young professionals for a variety of reasons. For starters, the city is incredibly walkable. In fact, it sits at just 1.28 square miles in size, which has earned it the nickname "the mile-square city." The area also offers a quick commute — a short, under 20-minute train ride to Penn Station via the PATH — for those wanting to relish all NYC has to offer without having to live there.
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
Hoboken's proximity to Manhattan is far from this New Jersey community's only attraction. The area's distinction of having more bars per capita than NYC means you can find live music playing pretty much every night in Hoboken, especially on Washington Street, the city’s main thoroughfare.
Washington Street plays host to various high-end local shops, including Milano Designer Imports
and the beloved Washington General Store
, a home decor and contemporary gift shop that provides a combination of mindfully selected items and a whole lot of love for its local neighborhood.
Hoboken boasts award-winning restaurants offering cuisine from around the world, including classic Italian, French, Spanish, and Japanese eateries. There are also vegan/vegetarian options and farm-to-table establishments that feature locally sourced ingredients from nearby farms and markets. No matter what you crave, you will find it in Hoboken — from cozy cafes to five-star dining experiences. A particular favorite of new and long-time residents is Amanda's
, a new American eatery that has been serving delicious food with an Argentine touch to the Hoboken community for more than 30 years. Dining Room At Anthony David's
, a stylish, cozy trattoria serving brunch all day and fresh Italian cuisine with a BYOB policy, also ranks highly in locals’ hearts.
Things to Do
Hoboken offers a seemingly endless array of activities and things to do for locals. Music lovers can attend festivals on Pier A Park
during the summer months, while those seeking a mix of food, drinks, and family-friendly fun appreciate Pier 13
, a local beer garden that stretches out into the Hudson. From peaceful strolls along the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway
to soaking up societal yore at the Hoboken Historical Museum
, there truly is something for everyone in this New Jersey community.
