The end of the year is approaching, which means one thing: the Best of Hoboken and Jersey City 2023 Guide is back! In a blink of an eye, 2023 is almost over — and now is the best time to think about all of your favorite local businesses and nominate them for an award.

These reader-selected awards give businesses bragging rights for months (and sometimes years) to come. Best of luck to all the local businesses — and don’t forget to nominate your favorites!
Blast 7D — located at the American Dream Mall in East Rutherford — is the world’s first fully interactive ride experience that incorporates seven different dimensions to make it really feel like you’re in the game. The 12 full-motion seat theater takes 3D technology and adds acceleration, motion, wind, and the element of competitive play as you blast on-screen “bad guys” to get the high score and there are five separate ride experiences — both scary and not scary. Husband and wife Vito Zarrillo, Jr. Amanda Zarrillo are Hoboken residents who created the ride together.
Mile Square Theatre is a non-profit theater located at 1400 Clinton Street in Hoboken and its mission is to enrich and engage the community through theater and innovative arts education with a variety of professional theater shows throughout the year — including shows for young audiences and an annual festival of plays.
