BEST SPOTS TO PHOTOGRAPH NEW YORK SKYLINE

A Visual Storytelling by Lucas Compan

Small city, great time

Hoboken is a very small city in the state of New Jersey. The city's population is 50,000. Walk along the waterfront is great way to enjoy one of the best views of the New York City skyline. Also, a great spot for photos.

The Colors of Hoboken are vivid and calm at the same time

The waterfront park is a great public place to park from dusk till dawn. It's also the perfect place to bike, run or walk anytime of day.

Locals know what they're talking about

There's a line down there’s a line down the block of tourists to see the famous Cake Boss bakery every day. People who live here know that if you want real Italian baked quality, you can always also go to either Cake Boss or head uptown to Giorgio Pasticceria Italiana. In Hoboken, you will be surrounded by Italian delicious and tasteful treats.

You'll find a classic train station

Hoboken Terminal is one of the New York metropolitan area's major transportation hubs.

Until the opening of the North River Tunnels and the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad tubes around 1910 travel to Manhattan from most of the continental USA required a transfer to a ferry at the Hudson River, at the time often called the North River

Warm Weather and Waterfront: always a good combination

Pier A is the perfect spot to enjoy a night out looking up to the sky. You can even see shooting stars. I've seen it three times. And they say it brings a lot of good luck. Right?

So let's make a toast to Hoboken. It deserves, indeed. Speaking of it, Hoboken has more bars per capita than New York City. The small city is about one mile square in size, has about 50,000 residents, and sports more than 120 drinking establishments. If a tavern is crowded, just walk three steps down on the same street.

Cheers!
