Hoboken is a family friendly neighborhood with plenty of restaurants, small businesses, and parks. The view of NYC from the Hudson River is beautiful with tons of piers to walk around and take gorgeous pictures. The ambiance of the town is young and fresh, which means nightlife. Stevens Institute invites college kids and keeps the city on its toes. Overall, Hoboken is such an ideal community to live in and I am so grateful to be from here.

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!
Love the little streets, restaurants, coffee shops, incredible waterfront and friendly establishment owners. Types of restaurants is becoming my increasingly diverse as well, so hopefully the population will become increasingly diverse as well.
