Here in the Garden State, Jersey folk are known for different things. However, we may not always agree with our different views. Although, when it comes to having the same enthusiasm for our hometown, that’s one thing we won’t fight you on. For us living in the Mile Square City, there are many reasons why we are proud to call it our Home Sweet Hoboken. Read on for 26 reasons why Hoboken is simply the best place to live.
