The trip to Maxwell’s can be a hassle, but the 15-minute walk from the PATH train can make you feel like you’re in small-town America. The restaurant in front is big and friendly; for dessert you can feast on indie-rock fare from popular indie acts (the Fiery Furnaces, Big Pink) and garage favorites (King Khan & BBQ Show). Hometown heroes Yo La Tengo stage their more-or-less annual Hanukkah shows here.

First of all Maxwell's is no longer Maxwell's. The longtime music venue hosting the class acts listed above closed down two years ago and has since reopened under the same name. Only time will tell if it books the bar with acts of anywhere near the same caliber.

I have some other problems with this review. First this picture has nothing to do with maxwell's and is certainly not in Hoboken. Second, the trip from Manhattan to Hoboken via PATH train or bus is certainly quicker than the trip to Bushwick. Finally, on your 15 minute walk from the train you will not feel like you are in small town America. Rather, you will feel like you are in Brooklyn and you will wonder where all the Hipsters are hiding.
