Favorite thing about Hoboken: I like the fact that Hoboken looks directly at the island of Manhattan but still remains connected to the mainland United States. That’s what gives Hoboken a unique sense of self—it’s not NYC, it’s not “Jersey”—it’s just Hoboken.

Least favorite thing about Hoboken: Politics—not just City Hall politics, but bogusly rigid business politics, social politics, barroom politics, playground politics. It’s pervasive and its ugly—and I really wish people could take it down a notch and not take themselves so seriously.
