Hoboken is the Manhattan Beach of the East Coast
If there is a Red Bull New York ghetto, Hoboken, NJ is it. The city that is notorious for an inordinate amount of colorless bars, post-college frat boys and hot-yet-bland future trophy wives is also home to Tim Ream, Austin da Luz, Carl Robinson, Juan Agudelo, Matt Kassel and Hans Backe*. Read all about their lives in "the Mile Square" and sympathize with Backe as he laments the city's lack of a proper badminton pitch in the latest issue of H-Mag.
*Full disclosure: I'm a former Jersey City resident and Hoboken is to JC what Seattle is to Portland. It's not better or worse, just different.
