Hoboken's Natural Advantages Offer Manufacturers And Business Firms Ideal Locations for Plant and Distributing Center

City Commissioners of Hoboken

HOBOKEN Means BUSINESS

Hoboken is ready for big business Now!

Hoboken invites manufacturers from near and far to investigate its many natural advantages.

Hoboken has excellent sites available immediately for industries which are planning future prosperity through proper location.

Here you will find easy access to rail, water and highway transportation—in fact unequalled in the New York metropolitan zone.

Ships operate at the city waterfront from the finest docks in thf-harbor-with connecting facilities with all the main railroads of the country.

Nowhere in the port are there such diversified natural advantages to produce goods for the world's markets at lower costs and distribute them easily and quickly at lower prices than on the west bank of the Hudson in Hoboken.

Geographically, Hoboken is in a key spot for producer, distributor, business man, resident. It is nearer financial and amusement centers of the world's greatest city than most of New York itself and more convenient.

Hoboken has unexcelled trucking service to Metropolitan New York, which is proven to be quicker and more economical than the congested streets of Manhattan,

Hoboken is only a few minutes' shipping time from the Holland Vehicular Tunnel and the Lincoln Tubes with modern highways leading to the George Washington Bridge. Six ferry crossings are also available.

Manufacturers here of long standing realize the multiple advantages presented by the Mile-Square City and are planning expansion with model factory Buildings,

The City Commissioners, ever mindful to promote the welfare of the municipality, have adopted a broad policy of cooperation with industries locating here.

Regular passenger and freight service to and from all parts of the world direct, await you with our water and rail facilities.

Every encouragement is given to world-wide commerce by the City Commissioners for new industries desiring to make their future headquarters here.

Hoboken Is a Progressive Modern City

. . . with first class police and fire departments, twenty-nine miles of paved streets, modern sewers, fine parks and residential sections and excellent educational facilities and churches. Few cities enjoy the natural advantages that have fallen to the lot of the City of Hoboken as an industrial and residential community. Before locating that new factory it will pay to consider Hoboken.
