Best waterfront walks in Hoboken
A must see if you are walking the waterfront it Hoboken. Pier C juts into the Hudson River and thought it's small, offers interesting terrain, and fabulous views of NYC. There's also a playground built into the landscape for kids to play.

Walk through the Erie Lackawanna station and take the walkway that connects Hoboken to Jersey City Newport. Lots to see and do once you get to the Newport side. There’s a great children’s park and man made beach with chairs for relaxing in the warm months.

Food scene
One of our favorites in Hoboken. French inspired plus some other eclectic choices. Nice outdoor seating; good for a drink or meal.

Best pizza in nyc according to New York Times; we agree! Worth the trip over to jersey city. Take the path, cab or Lyft parking will be impossible. They don’t take reservations; be prepared to wait but you won’t have to wait long.

The original La Isla on lower Washington for Cuban breakfast, lunch or dinner. Place is tiny; there may be a wait, but it's worth it. Very reasonably priced.

Fancier La Isla with wine, beer and cocktails. Great Cuban food, the menu a bit more sophisticated. This La Isla is larger than the original but you'll want to make a reservation. Open for lunch and dinner.

Great falafel and a decent selection of middle eastern fare; order at the counter and you can take out or eat in. Very reasonably priced. Best for lunch or if you are in the mood for a light dinner.

This longtime, family run Hoboken establishment is another good choice for middle eastern fare with a more extensive menu.

Home of Hoboken's largest slice and the pizza is quite good. Menu is fairly extensive if you're not in the mood for a slice, but most people go to Benny's for the pizza.

Best brick oven pizza in Hoboken IMHO though new places keep cropping up and we haven't tried them. Whenever I'm in the mood for brick oven pizza this is where we go — atmosphere is nice and restaurant extends far into the back, so you never have to wait for a table. Also very close to the Carriage House.

Where to grocery shop
There are two Kings food markets in Hoboken — the one on River Street is closer to the Carriage House.
Extensive selection of groceries — best to bring a car if you have one.

Check out the exhibition calendar — there's always something interesting to see like the recent J.D. Salinger exhibit...the author saved EVERYTHING! You can also check out the famed reading room and marvel at the architecture. There's a lovely gift store too.

A must do when visiting New York. The former elevated freight line was slated for demolition and then repurposed into a public space. The entire walkway doesn't take that long to cover only there's a lot to do and see along the way.

If you want a good view of the Statue of Liberty and don't plan on visiting the statue or Ellis Island, take the Staten Island Ferry. It's also a great excursion if you want to get some perspective on NYC. The ferry is free; beware of scammers who might try to sell you tickets, you don't need them to board the ferry.
