From Hoboken to the Heights

Hoboken lies along the Hudson river. Behind the city rise the Palisades with Jersey City and West Hoboken at the top. Various methods were devised to move people and goods from Hoboken to Jersey City Heights including inclines, steps and wagon lifts. West Hoboken no longer exists. It is now part of Union City.

100 steps from Hoboken to Jersey City Heights

In August 2013 Lenny Franco wrote that the 100 steps had been restored and were finished on August 29, 2013.

The original Franklin Street steps were built in 1873 of wood. They were closed in the 1920 and removed entirely in the 1990s.
