Videos: “I was born in Hoboken”
Blast from the past
Hoboken411 reader MidnightRacer sent these cool links to a retro 1979 film shot in Hoboken. Interesting perspective from then Mayor Steve Cappiello, who might have divulged the reasoning as to why we have so many street “fiestas!” Certainly seems like the Mayor back then was way more “in touch” with the residents on a very personable level.
“16 mm film done by Lou Tiscornia in 1979 about Hoboken just as it was changing from “old Hoboken” into the city it is today. The K&E building had just opened, which was one of the first residential conversions done, Hudson street was getting it’s first parking garage and the piers were just a bunch of rubble. But we do have good memories! Written and Directed by Lou Tiscornia, with other original Hobokenites, Duke Earle, Brian McCord and others.”
“Mostly the old timers talking about the old days. Good stories about The Clam Broth House, bars, singers, movies, baseball and people coming from New York to live in Hoboken. Stories the way we heard them as kids.”
