Hoboken, a city and port on the Hudson river, New Jersey, United States of America, adjoining Jersej7 City and opposite to New York, with which it is connected by a steam-ferry. The name was brought from Holland by the original Dutch settlers. Picturesquely situated, the place is a favourite resort in summer, and a considerable ship-building and iron-founding industry is carried on, besides a large coal trade. Among public buildings the Stevens' Institute of Technology deserves special mention.
