7 Star Art

[Continuing the original Hoboken411 photo series: Hoboken Digital Art…]

What were some of your earliest Hoboken memories?

Many of us who call Hoboken their home – used to visit the city before they moved here.

Whether it was one of the many nice restaurants, or perhaps a bar by the PATH station, I’m sure there’s a couple places that stick out as your earliest memories.

Some of my original flashbacks include ONieal’s, Ted & Jo’s (which is becoming Johnny Pepperoni), Cadillac Bar (gone), and more. But this image sticks in my head because it was a spot we drove past often on the way to find parking (which was much easier back in the day!) And even though 7-Star(s) Pizza was remodeled a bit in recent years – still has a very similar look and feel that it did way back then.

(Want to submit your version of an “artified” image of Hoboken? Please email them to Hoboken411 – with “Digital Art” in the subject line, a caption – and how you’d like to be credited.)

Owner of Miss Kitty’s was great, but the hands-down winner of best owner/proprietor has got to be the guy who owned Carmelita Cafe. Great guy. Friendly, talented in the kitchen, etc. Shame they left. Best Mexican food this town’s had in forever.[quote comment=”204756″]Miss Kitty’s I loved that place. I miss that place. The owner was such a sweetheart.

I forgot all about Carmelita Cafe. He was a doll. The food was fantastic. Was that the place with the fried ice cream? Do you remember why they closed?,cause I can’t.

My first memories of Hoboken are of my dad bringing me as a well behaved 6 year old to to the shooting range back on Madison. Great place and great people. It was actually one of the first places I went after I moved back to NJ. Bummer that I can’t go spend an hour a couple times a week doing some target practice or chatting anymore. “Progress”

When i went to high school across the street that spot was occupied by a place called the copper kettle aka “the pit”and eddie pi would not allow me or any of my friends in to buy anything. For while there was a big window where they would serve my favorite sno-cones. the food was crap.

The Copper Kettle (The Pit) is correct, but Eddie had mostly Sinatra records in the jukebox. They were great times. 😛 [quote comment=”204716″]When i went to high school across the street that spot was occupied by a place called the copper kettle aka “the pit”and eddie pi would not allow me or any of my friends in to buy anything.

A bit embarrassed to admit this, but I do recall going to Planet Hoboken a few times prior to moving here. A more wild, free-spirited time before everyone was stressed out.
