Tour Features a Mix of Downtown, Midtown and Uptown Homes, in Diverse Styles and Vintages; Last Year’s Tour Sold Out! Tickets on Sale Now, Save $10

On Sunday, Oct. 26, the public has a chance to visit ten stunning Hoboken residences and a historic collection of Stevens family artifacts in the annual Hoboken House Tour, a fundraiser for the Hoboken Historical Museum. The tour offers a signature mix of elegant Victorian row houses, contemporary condos, and a few historic buildings, including a grand residence on the campus of Stevens Institute of Technology, and a chance to visit the Mary Stuart Stevens Baird room in the Samuel C. Williams Library on campus.

This year’s tour is packed with fascinating residences, leading tour goers through many different neighborhoods around Hoboken, from downtown to uptown, and offering amazing views from Maxwell Place and the Stevens campus. The self-guided tour takes about two to three hours on foot, with homes opening at 10 a.m. and closing at 4 p.m. For convenience, tour goers may pick up a House Tour booklet and start the tour from either of two locations: The Hoboken Historical Museum, 1301 Hudson St., or the Hoboken Fire Department Museum, 213 Bloomfield St. Homes may be visited in any order, and a map is included in the booklet. Tickets are $30 in advance, $40 the day of the tour (Museum members pay $30).

Highlights include:

  • Several grand 19th century homes that have been reclaimed and restored to single-family residences after years as multifamily housing, with many original details preserved.
  • Brand-new condominium buildings with the latest appliances and finishes, and Gold LEED-certified, energy-saving systems.
  • The skillful touch of talented interior designers Carol Swift and Suzanne Cummings, integrating bold wallpapers, subtle colors and statement furniture pieces into harmonious retreats.
  • Homes with idiosyncratic design, including a home filled with eclectic furniture that was salvaged, rebuilt or reclaimed, and many filled with homeowners’ cherished art collections.
  • A loft-like space with concrete floors, exposed ductwork and skylights, with an industrial feel softened by comfortable elegant furnishings.

Tour goers can save time and money by buying tickets online, by visiting the Museum’s website,, or by clicking on this link:

Volunteers are needed to staff the tour locations during the day. Please contact for details.

Mile Square Theater presents CYRANO

Mile Square Theater presents CYRANO

October 11 – 26
Saturdays @ 2pm and 5pm
Sundays @ 11am and 3pm
at the Edge Lofts

NOTE: on October 26 @ 5pm, there will be an adjusted performance for children with special needs and their loved ones, sponsored by The Kessler Foundation.

Purchase Tickets:

What if you could single-handedly fight off 100 men? Or if your wit was as sharp as the sword you carry? And you wrote poetry that could make any person weep? Wouldn’t these attributes win you the affection of the woman you love? Not if you are Cyrano, whose oversized nose shames him into silence, believing no one could love him.

Mile Square Theatre presents Cyrano, Jo Roet’s delightful adaptation of the classic tale about a poet-warrior with a very large nose and even larger heart. This swashbuckling production features 15 characters played by three versatile actors who bring the story to life with wild theatricality.

Lenard Petit (star of MST’s A Christmas Carol and Artistic Director of the Michael Chekhov Studios) returns to MST’s stage as Cyrano, reprising his performance that opened MST’s doors 12 years ago. He is joined by emerging artists Meeya Davis and Will Hardyman.

Tickets: $22 for adults and $12 for students/seniors
Purchase Tickets:, or at the door.
Reservations are STRONGLY recommended.

While Mile Square Theatre (MST), Hudson County’s premiere professional theatre company, builds its new theatre space in The Artisan at 1408 Clinton Street, the company will perform across the street in the intimate Edge Lofts at 1405 Clinton, thanks to the generosity of Bijou Properties.
