A Stroll Through Hoboken, NJ

If you’ve ever been to Brooklyn Heights, you would love Hoboken, NJ — a city on the Hudson river just across Manhattan. It’s serene and cultured in its own way, with a myriad of fabulous historic doors and windows, British-eccentric color palette and lots of narrow charming streets to walk around.

The exhibition that just opened showcases around 700 historic postcards from all 12 cities and towns of New Jersey’s Hudson County. Most of the postcards date from the Golden Age of postcards, the 1900s – 1920s, showing parks, street scenes, scenic views and important municipal buildings, churches, schools and factories, when they were brand new and the pride of Hudson County.
