Hoboken may be best known for its breathtaking views of New York City and the Hudson River – whether you’re taking them in from a walk along Sinatra Drive, a restaurant by the pier, or from the 5th floor of your brownstone apartment. Perhaps one of the best and unbeknownst places to be dazzled by the most amazing city skyline, however, is nestled upon a cliff on the campus of Steven’s Institute of Technology known as the Castle Point Lookout.
Situated more than 100 feet above sea level “the lookout” is the highest known elevation in the city. It’s free to use and rich in history – believed to have been mentioned in explorer Henry Hudson’s log as he ventured up the river in 1609.
Standing on the Lookout you can gaze as far up or down the Hudson River as the days clarity allows all while enjoying the quiet and most serene atmosphere high above the city’s hustle and bustle. With all the wonderful landmarks Hoboken has to offer, the Lookout is perhaps the best, most unique and not to mention romantic spots of them all.
