Hoboken Tux Shop used to be a Delicatessen!
Spotted this cool impromptu “history lesson” at 4th & Bloomfield the other day. The former Tux Shop – (which abandoned Hoboken due to changing demographics and draconian not-friendly-to-small-business parking nonsense) used to be a Delicatessen based on what was underneath the old sign. God knows how long ago that was. 40 years?
Imagine a deli where every employee wears tuxedos? The “Hoboken Tuxacatessen.” Wouldn’t last too long in my opinion.
Up next at this spot is supposed to be a “blow bar” (sort of like the “Blowout Zone” coming to 8th & Jefferson). What ever happened to the ability to groom yourself?
Conceived and launched in 2006, the original Hoboken Photo of the Day category contains thousands of pictures and includes many other subsections, including Drunk Bread Crumbs, HDR Photography, Hoboken Digital Art, and more.
We feel that by photo-documenting the city of Hoboken season after season, “a picture is worth 1000 words,” and can tell a myriad of stories encompassing the good, bad and the ugly contained within the mile-square. Our constantly-evolving way of maintaining a historical archive of memories and sights.
