Although not so marked, the museum curator has stated that artwork on the shirts was created by local Hoboken artists Tim Daly and Sheilah Scully.

The hotel at 44 Hudson Place (northeast corner of Hudson Street and Hudson Place) was once a single resident occupancy (SRO) hotel until the late 1980s or early 1990s when it was no longer operated as a hotel.
