Hoboken's Washington Street was named by the American Planning Association (planning.org) as one of the "Great Streets of America" in 2010; with a mile of boutiques, restaurants, as well as contemporary and vintage merchants, a stroll on Hoboken's main thoroughfare can be a celebration any day of the year.

Washington Street draws on almost a hundred images and maps in the collection of the Hoboken Historical Museum (hobokenmuseum.org), reproduced here under a Creative Commons 2.5 license, and set to an original score recorded in the heart of the Mile Square City around 1994.

From its industrial and maritime origins to the vibrant family-friendly community of the 21st century, Washington Street shows that it's always been, and always will be, a very special place.
