About the City of Hoboken, New Jersey
Hoboken, the “Mile Square City,” is a dynamic urban city with a population exceeding 50,000. Located on the Hudson River across from New York City, Hoboken is one of the most walkable cities in the country with the highest rate of public transportation usage. Washington Street, a vibrant retail and dining destination with many of Hoboken’s more than 100 sidewalk cafes, was named one of the Top 10 Streets in America. Featuring a world-class waterfront, a lively arts and music scene, and family-friendly parks and activities, Hoboken is a great place to live and work. Hoboken residents and all licensed professionals are invited to apply.


Talking Ed Note: The weekend paper had a story quoting Al Arezzo's lawyer saying he that an administrative law judge recently found that the city’s decision was “overly severe” and instead reduced the penalty to a six-month suspension and the judge’s decision will now be reviewed by a Civil Service Commission, who will make the final decision.

MSV has consistently held this is incorrect from earlier this year when Hoboken411 said Al Arezzo was coming back and several times since.

Stay tuned for a follow up on this story.
