Hoboken is number one!

7/14/2008:

For singles over 30, that is.

Today over at CNN Money: “For the second year running, Hoboken takes the top spot for the over 30 and single scene, as part of Money’s Best Places to Live.

Zog Sports’ Chris Corbin as well as Mayor David Roberts are highlighted as they go over reasons why our city was rated number one.

“The home of movies’ famed stoner duo Harold and Kumar attracts young professionals, students and artists – and not just those who crave White Castle sliders.

Legend has it that Hoboken has more bars per capita in its one square mile than any other city in the United States. Pub crawling aside, the town attracts young people looking for relatively affordable housing just minutes from New York City. Hoboken’s waterfront is also a great place to take a date to share a romantic view of the Manhattan skyline.”

So what do you think of the video? Are we a stoner town filled with lots of drunks that love hanging out downtown, at Bahama Mama’s and Mile Square?

Does it truly capture the “singles” essence of Hoboken??

globetrotter is saying that all of the singles, DINK’s, and transients in Hoboken basically enjoy themselves, pay high taxes (even indirectly through rent), and ignore all the corruption.

Honestly, Hoboken is a great place for singles. It was great in the early 90’s when I was looking for that sort of thing, and it’s great now… There are bars for college age kids, late 20-somethings, and the 30-plus crowd. Plus the parks, the waterfront, the gyms, the stores, the ferry (less easy to mingle on PATH & bus), common areas in new condos, parties… Lot of opportunities to meet someone.

As for the corruption… Well, yeah, but that’s another thread.

[quote comment=”92898″]I guess the mayor LOVES the young singles so much for he counts on them to work and party so much that there’s little time for paying attention to town politics and voting![/quote]
