Hoboken was developed by one man and his family. A remarkable entrepreneuer/inventor, Colonel John Stevens, purchased the island (separated from land by marshes on the west) in 1784 for about $90,000, and named it Hoboken from an amalgam of the Dutch and Indian words for it.

Colonel Stevens developed Hoboken, as a resort, beginning with the six mile path known as River Walk. Later adding a spa, tavern, hotel, and a Ferris wheel. Hoboken’s wonderful attractions received a lot of interest from large numbers of rich and famous people. Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, Lillian Russell, Jay Gould, William Vanderbilt, Horace Greeley and Harvey Ward Beecher are all said to have frequented Hoboken.

I am sure if Colonel Stevens was with us today he would be one of the first to purchase a condo at Hudson Tea, 1500 Hudson St & 1500 Washington St.

Breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline, a fully supplied onsite business center, and 24-hour lobby service make Hudson Tea the residence of choice for elite Hobokenites. Ideally located on the scenic Hudson River, Hudson Tea combines exceptional aesthetic beauty with incredible amenities, including an onsite gourmet café, exclusive Residents’ Club, room service, valet, and housekeeping services, all designed to accommodate your every need.
