How to get here
Hoboken is a densely-populated, pedestrian-friendly urban oasis with a wide variety of transportation options. Traffic congestion is common and street parking is in short supply and hard to find, so to make a visit as stress-free as possible, visitors are strongly encouraged to leave their cars at home and arrive via one of the many convenient mass transit options available. You won’t need a car to get around in Hoboken once you arrive – we’re only about one square mile in size, so everything is within walking distance.
