Great view of Hudson & NYC skyline

Hoboken has some top spots to gaze at New York

With spring around the corner – more residents seem to be out and about. But one thing that always surprised me was that lack of pedestrian foot traffic through Stevens Institute.

We like to stroll around up there often, because of the higher elevation and stunning views of the Hudson River and the New York City skyline. You sometimes even forget you’re in Hoboken. Below is a recent photo taken near the cannon south of the Howe Building.

I wonder why more people don’t visit this beautiful area more often? Are the hills steep enough to deter most?

Those hills are great for hill workouts (running), which is what I embraced full on once I retired from the whole marathon thing. “best gravity in town” is what I think.

Personally I dont mind if more people don’t visit more often.

And like others I’ve taken hundreds of pics from those hills and parts nearby.


When driving in from bayonne on the inbound lanes of the turnpike, the view is real good. The passengers can look all they want but don’t stop. I was driving in one sat am and one of those monster cruise ships was coming in, real nice


You hit the nail on the head – can’t take those hills with bum knees. Also, I wonder if people realize they can go up there? Some may be thinking its private property strictly for the students.


I enjoy watching 1WTC rise from that spot especially since it’s the same spot I stood watching 1WTC come down.
