About Hoboken

The name Hoboken was chosen by Colonel John Stevens when he bought land, on a part of which the city still sits. The Lenape (later called Delaware Indian) tribe of Native Americans referred to it as "Hopoghan Hackingh", meaning "the place where we all got drunk" or alternatively as "Ahahauck," meaning ""place beyond the pines". In 1609, Henry Hudson sailed for England but never returned to his original destination. His voyage was supposed to end in Amsterdam; from there he intended to travel overland and find a westward route back home via an Arctic route.
