More About
Hoboken, NJ

About HobokenSqueezed into little more than a square mile of land between the Hudson River and North Bergen, Hoboken is nevertheless a major railroad terminal and seaport across the river from New York City. West of the Hudson River is Stevens Institute of Technology, founded in 1870 as an engineering academy. The college has expanded from its original location at Castle Point to include centers for science, research, management and engineering.

While beer gardens and fireworks attracted revelers to Hoboken's River Walkway, the scenic countryside called out to such literary, artistic and society figures as John Jacob Astor, Washington Irving and William Cullen Bryant. John Stevens, a prominent Hoboken native, built the country's first steam locomotive in 1824.

Hoboken Historical Museum , 1301 Hudson St., offers changing exhibits, activities and events and a self-guiding walking tour of historic buildings and homes; phone (201) 656-2240.
