A modern tour of Hoboken

4/16/2009:

Video very well done!

I have to say, this video shot & produced by Halstead Property does a very good job promoting Hoboken in a very positive light.

Don’t you agree?

I love the town, but to act like Hoboken’s roots are steeped in architectural beauty just shows how ignorant realtors can be. Hoboken’s roots are an industrial shipping and manufacturing town, a blue collar town. It has come a long way, but Hudson St and Castle Point Terrace are NOT the norm.[/quote]

It’s not the realtors being ignorant. They know exactly what they are doing. It’s called marketing. They are trying to pique the interest of potential buyers from Manhattan and Brooklyn. I’m not saying it’s truth in advertising, but the video is certainly not a product of the realtors’ ignorance. They are choosing the sights and backdrops they think will get Manhattanites over here to take a look.

sorry, too many I’s…it was after WWI that the first real population of tenements began. figure right around or just prior to the time of the depression.

actually Stevens began the steam ferry in 1811 to bring people to his “resort” area…it wasn’t until after WWII that the immigrants began pouring in and tenements were built/occupied/overcrowded. the stately homes on castle point pre-date the arrival of the great unwashed. got it?

So according to the Halstead video, Hoboken is a city that runs from the Hudson river all the way west to Washington St. 🙄

Seriously, aside from 3 quick close-ups of store fronts, did you see one photo clip taken West of Washington? Head over to the projects and show me some aesthitic architecture there…

ST, I have to disagree on the W. Perhaps I am just excited to have a hotel in town, but aesthestically I do not think its that big a miss. Would not have been my first choice, however. I think a much bigger eyesore are the TV dishes hanging from every other balcony at The Skyline. Looks like downtown Baghdad. Awful.
