No one cares about Sinatra
Was Frank Sinatra born in Hoboken? Sure. Did he move out as soon as he possibly could and never look back? Yes. Does anyone in Hoboken today care? Not really. About the only sign of Sinatra you’ll find in town these days is a sad plaque in the sidewalk outside the address where he was born. The actual building burned down decades ago.
Batman lives here
Hoboken Batman is a thing, and while his bicycle is perhaps a little less impressive than the Tumbler seen in the movies, people still love him.
The Nerds are always playing somewhere
If you don’t live in Jersey, you’ve never heard of The Nerds, but it’s okay: they’ve never heard of you. One of the most successful cover bands in history, The Nerds play Hoboken constantly and are part of the background track of the city.
Driving is for suckers
Parking in Hoboken is hell, and traffic at rush hour is a lower circle of hell, but the main reason no one drives is that Hoboken is literally the most walkable city in the world. Plus, you’d lose your parking spot, and chances are very high you actually murdered someone for that spot and have the body in your trunk.
No one cares about, or goes to, Sybil's Cave
Sybil’s Cave is a cave. Edgar Allan Poe, who briefly lived in Hoboken, used the cave as inspiration for the story The Mystery of Marie Rogêt. As a result, someone refurbished the site a few years ago and it gets mentioned as a tourist destination sometimes. Don’t do it: it’s just a tiny park, and the actual cave was filled in with concrete decades ago.
