Hoboken, in Hudson County, New Jersey, is the home of Hoboken Terminal, a major transportation hub, and the location of the first recorded game of baseball. Hoboken was settled as part of the Pavonia, New Netherland colony in the 1600s, although it was not incorporated as a township until 1849, becoming a city in 1855. Hoboken was initially an island, surrounded by the Hudson River on the east, and tidal lands on the west.
