Hoboken has a small town vibe and yet, is easily accessible to NYC via the path train, buses or ferries. As well, its a mile square and easy to walk from one end to another for anything you need.
Hoboken, also boasts the Mile Square theater group, gyms, and lots of fun bars and restaurants. It is a place I've called home for many years and hopefully more to come!

Hoboken is a convenient town, located on the Hudson Waterfront across Manhattan NY. The city has a diverse community with mixed cultural backgrounds and ages. It is home to Stevens Institute of Technology, and hometown of Frank Sinatra.
Just like any other towns, living in Hoboken has its pros and cons.
One of its pros is its convenient location. Many people commute to New York or others cities from here. Also, there are many bars and restaurants and businesses that serve not only college students but families with or without children.
Some of its cons: the city overpopulated, and cost of living is high.
I like Sinatra Park, as it is very scenic with boats passing by, the city of New York across the river, and how everyone looks like they enjoy themselves. There is a lot of activities that can be done around the area like walking around, eating, and enjoying the company of others. It's also fairly clean in terms of separating trash from recyclables. The only thing I wish would change is the homeless problem that is becoming a usual sight in the city. Homelessness, no matter the individual, should never define someone's capability and rank as a person.
