Hoboken Historical Museum

Northern New Jersey

This small museum conveys a sense of Hoboken that's hard to imagine today – a city of blue-collar Irish and Italian Catholic immigrants, toiling in the shipyards and docks. It also offers self-guided walking tours of Frank Sinatra's Hoboken haunts, and On the Waterfront film locales.
