Funds raised to support the family of Fabiola Bittar De Kroon, who was tragically killed in the horrific NJ Transit Hoboken train crash last week, will go to support several orphanages in Brazil in her memory.
Hoboken’s own craft beer maker – 902 Brewing Co., is set to open a tap room in Hoboken, as reported by hMAG.
What are “tap rooms”, you ask? Well, typically tap rooms allow a microbrewery to serve its beer directly to consumers (versus selling it in a liquor store or a bar). And they are a recent creation in New Jersey.

Reading lovers rejoice! We’re kicking off our local events guide with the reopening of the Rose Reading Room at the NY Public Library that has been under extensive renovation for the past two years. All these events (as always) are assessable via public transit. Enjoy!
The Hoboken Historical Museum announced that tickets are now available for one of Hoboken’s most popular fall events, the Annual Hoboken House Tour, on Sunday, Oct. 30, from 10 am – 4 pm. This year’s tour will feature about 9 private residences—including Victorian brownstones and brand-new condos, as well as converted factories and churches—plus a few bonus historic sites, graciously opened to visitors by Museum supporters to help raise funds.

The following is a Guest Post by Andrew Price:
At Strong Towns, we talk a lot about making small incremental improvements rather than always looking for the next mega-project. Why? Because everything we do has some a risk, and it is foolish to think otherwise. If Nassim Taleb teaches us anything, it is that we are more robust (and even anti fragile, if we are able to learn from our mistakes) when we have a pool of money to make many smaller bets with than a few larger bets. Rather than going double or nothing on one large megaproject, we should be making many smaller bets, where we can handle the fallout or undo what we did with little penalty if an individual bet goes south.
A new Hoboken hotel coming to a site adjacent to the downtown post office has been discussed for a bit of time. But seeing is believing, and a new website with detailed plans from KMS Development Partners shows renderings of what we think would be a beautiful and complimentary addition to our waterfront.
The Pilsener Haus and Biergarten is one of our favorite places in Hoboken. It has a level of detail that few other establishments can match. Along with a scale that allows for a multitude of opportunities for enjoyment. They also breathed new life in the northwest area of Hoboken – and we thank them for doing so.
