Walking the Hudson in Hoboken

Having lived in the area for close to 10 years, I decided to actually take a walk along the Hudson River in Hoboken. It was a hot summer day, but I got my exercise in, saw some sights, and got a bunch of fun images of the area. The walk started at the 9th St Light Rail stop and went down to Sinatra’s house, then over to the river, and back up to the Lincoln Harber Light Rail stop. It was a good walk that kicked my butt.

Apparently there was a festival here the day before.

Sinatra's birthplace. I did not take a picture of the plaque on the ground as a dog had recently visited it and blessed it.
