During this week, besides the daily visits to Manhattan, I have also been 
exploring the town of Hoboken here in New Jersey. My son lives in the 
neighbouring town Weehawken, although here it is sometimes hard to tell where 
one town ends and the next one begins. The other day I walked the length of 
Hoboken’s main street, Washington St. It is about a mile long, starting at the 
city hall near the intersection with 1st St., and ending at 15th St. where 
there is an excellent liquor store called Cork & Wine. It is a nice walk 
through small-town America (incidentally, Hoboken’s main claim to fame is that 
the first officially recognised baseball game was played there in 1846).

This is Washington Street:

City Hall:

One of the reasons I did this walk is that all the utility boxes on Washington 
Street are beautifully painted, like this:

And I ran into this busker, playing close to a John Lennon utility box:

And he sounded very good.

There is a lot to like about Hoboken.
