Hoboken : Top 7 Best Places to visit in Hoboken

Must read

In the 17th century, Hoboken was established as a part of the Pavonia New Netherland colony. The city was first developed by Colonel John Stevens in the early 19th-century. It was used as a resort, and then as a residential area. It was originally part of Bergen Township but later North Bergen Township. In 1849, it became an independent township and was incorporated in 1855.

Hoboken was the home of the first ever recorded game of Baseball . It also houses the Stevens Institute of Technology which is one of the oldest universities in the United States. It is also the hometown and birthplace of Frank Sinatra. Many streets and parks have been named in his honor.

Hoboken was originally formed as a township on April 9, 1849, from portions of North Bergen Township. As the town grew in population and employment, many of Hoboken’s residents saw a need to incorporate as a full-fledged city, and in a referendum held on March 29, 1855, ratified an Act of the New Jersey Legislature signed the previous day, and the City of Hoboken was born. In the subsequent election, Cornelius V. Clickener became Hoboken’s first mayor. On March 15, 1859, the Township of Weehawken was created from portions of Hoboken and North Bergen Township.

Staten Island Ferry#6

Before the advent of modern bridges and tunnels, residents used private sailboats with two masts to travel between the boroughs. In 1810, a young entrepreneur started his own ferry service. Cornelius Vanderbilt, a native of Staten Island, used his birthday money to buy a periauger that could carry cargo up the river during the War of 1812. He would go on to finance Vanderbilt University and Grand Central Terminal, but you have to start somewhere.

Due to competition from automobile traffic, almost all NYC ferries had been closed by 1967. However, there was one bright spot for New York’s ferry future.

Perhaps you know Cake Boss from his show, or maybe from a local bakery in NYC. You can learn from the master, become a better batter-mixer, and share your cupcake-making skills with friends at Carlo’s Bake Shop.

Elysian Park#7

HOBOKEN WAS A RANCHING CENTURY RESORT. The Elysian Fields park, which ran along the Hudson River, was a popular spot for people to stroll and take in the views of the ships and the rising Manhattan skyline. For a moment of pause, Victorian era tourists stopped at Sybil’s Cave. It is a spring carved into the hill.

The area became a hub of industry after the Victorian strollers left and the grisly fame waned. In the 1930s, the cave was demolished. Warehouses took over the waterfront, and it wasn’t until 2007 when the cave was rediscovered by explorers after much searching. Although a new gate was built to recreate its glory, few people stop by what was once Hoboken’s favorite refuge.
