Zafra is the best bargain dinner in town
It’s owned and operated by Maricel Presilla, a world-renowned chef and food writer, but it’s super cheap and BYOB. Really: you can have a world-class meal for two there for $30.
We told Snooki and JWoww to take a hike to Jersey City
Not classy? When Hoboken found out that MTV planned to shoot the spin-off of Jersey Shore starring Snooki and JWoww in our classy town, the mayor shut that noise down fast, forcing MTV to move the production to Jersey City. You’re welcome.
We judge our pizza based on its size
At various pizza joints throughout town, you’ll see signs proclaiming that they have the "largest" slice (fact: Benny Tudinos on Washington St, in fact, does have the largest slice).
Gateway Park is the best place to be alone
Gateway Park is tiny, about the size of someone’s (small) backyard. It’s on the edge of town and the only sign identifying it says "Your Park." No one ever goes there, and there’s only room for maybe a dozen people at most anyway, if they were all willing to stand. If you want to be alone on a nice day, it’s your spot.
