Stuck and Then Staying – Hoboken Family Update

By Kathy Zucker • Wednesday, October 16th, 2013

Everywhere you go in Hoboken, NJ, you see kids with helmets on scooters, parents in tow. Many of these kids? Are surprisingly large. Renowned nationwide for its population aged 0-5, Hoboken is no longer just for babies.

The data behind the Wall Street Journal article showing everyone leaves Hoboken is now four years old, and second graders all over Hoboken are having a tough time finding desirable school spots. The real estate market is booming, with sale inventory at a record low and construction growing. If housing has recovered from its recession low – even after being severely impacted by a major hurricane – why aren’t more families selling and leaving Hoboken?

Sometimes, when you face your worst fears – in this instance, not having the perfect house in the perfect school district – you find reality is just fine.
