About the property

2 BR w/terrace, city view in historic Hoboken home

Exceptional Find! Located in the heart of Hoboken. Close to parks, waterfront, restaurants, bistros and bars, this charming apartment has everything you need for your NYC visit. It's steps away from the bus, Path & Ferry - closer to midtown than Brooklyn or the Upper East! Beautifully decorated, it includes a fully equipped and 'basics' stocked kitchen. Nothing worse than renting an apartment for a few days and having to buy garbage bags, paper towels, laundry detergent, etc. When we say stocked, we mean it! It's the perfect place to unwind with family or friends. Comfortably sleeps 5, with Queens in each BR, and full futon.

Built in 1901, the back of the building over looks the Hudson can lie in your bed and look out on the Empire state building. The front of the building offers a private terrace, perfect for unwinding with a glass of wine! This apartment is new to short term listings, is freshly painted, with new bedding, towels, brand new 50" smart TV, & beautiful furnishings.

About Diane Imus

Jay and I have been married since right after college, and are among the 'founding families' of Hoboken, staying here while our three kids grew up in a unique and urban walking town. We love to travel, and are big VRBO vacation renters, renting houses as far away as Washington state, Maine, New Hampshire and California. Jay works in Manhattan, and I work in Hoboken at a publishing company, which moved to Hoboken from NYC in 2002. Our two older sons are in college, and our daughter is in High School.

Diane Imus purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Diane Imus chose Hoboken

We purchased this house in 1999, when our family was really young. Over the years we've renovated almost every square inch of the place, while trying to keep the original, historic charm. The house was built in 1901, along with 4 other 'mirror-image' houses on Castlepoint. We love the street, the neighborhood and the fact that it's a little oasis away from the hustle and bustle of Hoboken. We've recently decided to convert one apartment so we could expand a little over the holidays, and enjoy the city view.

What makes this apartment unique

This home has a history, and living in it has been a very happy experience. We're a half a block from the park, and in the summer, our kids were in and out, off the basketball courts, on the playground, biking, roller blading. We've watched the Hoboken waterfront transform from broken down industrial into an absolute gem, where people walk, bike and fish, and simply sit outside with a book. Hoboken is a neighborhood extension of Manhattan.

Great base to explore NYC

  • 5 of 5

This was a great "home away from home" for our first trip to NYC. We were happy to park our car for the few days we were there and take the bus or train into the city. We have rented many places through VRBO and HomeAway; this is one of the best. The apartment is beautifully decorated, conveniently located and well-stocked with just about anything you might need. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space for four people to spread out. We loved Hoboken too.The neighborhood is safe and it is an easy walk to restaurants, shopping, public transportation and the Hudson River with gorgeous views of the city.

Just Gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home, just lovely. This place is spacious and comfortable. Quiet and convenient. I enjoyed experiencing some peace during a busy trip to NY. The views from my bedroom are great and the pics I took from the waterfront are stunning. We enjoyed the town of Hoboken as well. It is full of delicious eateries and parks every few blocks. We definitely recommend staying her for a different experience than time square!

Cute and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Walking distance to the Path and tons of options for restaurants nearby. Hoboken is a really nice place to stay near the city but not in the city. It’s much nicer than many of the spots in the city.

Incredible Place

Thank you so much for a wonderful time in Hoboken. The apartment was clean, beautifully furnished and very inviting. We spent every night on the balcony looking through the trees!
