Flashback Hoboken: Fall 2006 (Part 2)

Flashback Hoboken: Fall 2006 {Not done yet!}

A couple weeks ago, we looked back at some businesses that are no longer in Hoboken. This week, we’ll check out some businesses that have gone through some kind of renovation, but still exist in the same capacity more or less. Bring back any memories?

Once a bank, always a bank

Eight years ago, we had a bank called “Washington Mutual.” In business since the 1800’s! Then in 2008, after a 9-day “bank run” they were essentially “forced out” of business. It’s now JP Morgan Chase. If you’re interested in the ridiculously complicated story click here.

Seeing stars

Back in the early 90’s before we moved to Hoboken, “7 Star Pizza” was the go-to place for drunk slices after hitting the bars. Boy, what a dump it was, but the cheesy pizza sure it the spot. In 2006 they renovated and changed the name to “7 Stars.”

Duffy – City

Duffy’s was a perfectly good name for an Irish bar. When they renovated I guess traditional Irish-sounding bar names were “trending down,” and the name changed to “Cork City.” Maybe because they wanted to sell drinks other than $1 drafts?

Still here after all these years

2006 marked the beginning of Teak down by the PATH station. A tribute for them staying alive, I guess!
