Time Out says

Did you know that “Hoboken” is derived from the Lenni Lenape terminology for “Land of the Tobacco Pipe”? Or maybe it’s from a Dutch term “high bluff”? And would you believe this city was home to the first organized game of baseball? Trivia like this, plus artifacts, historical highlights and more are waiting to be absorbed.
