VisitNJ.org commercial shoot uptown

8/4/2009:

Because some of NJ is beautiful

In case you’re wondering what all the film crews are doing near the Uptown Ferry slip – it seems like a commercial shoot for VisitNJ.org. I guess NJ is trying to drum up tourism to help state coffers with tax revenue!!

(Thanks, Femi for the tip!)

Who wrote the Hoboken page?

If you look at the Hoboken page on the website – some things caught my attention:

  • The Free Kayaking & Maxwell Place Boathouse is actually 11th Street
  • Since when were kitchen wares considered hip? “Hey guys – I’m so cool with my new pizza cutter, ain’t I?”
  • And why is the center of town at 5th and Jackson? Imagine unsuspecting tourists arriving there as their final destination? Whoa Nelly!

Well, it’s nice that Hoboken got considered… I guess.

Matt from the Turning Point told me it is a movie scene they are shooting that has Harrison Ford in it. He was not in this shot but they rented out the restaurant to provide food and beverages for the staff as well as a place to relax. Not sure what the title of the movie is.

Cammarano promised the W Hotel he’d help drum up business

Let’s start with:
Google map needs to update the HBLR route – the map still shows the old freight right of way south of Observer Hwy. Also, while the B&R crowd will know where it is, St. Mary’s has been Hoboken Medical Center for a while.
Battaglia’s has been on Willow north of 14th for a while now.
As Camel2 pointed out, it’s River Street. River Road is north of Port Imperial in Weehawken.
