Hoboken is a city in Hudson County, New Jersey, United States. As of the 2010 United States Census, the city’s population was 50,005, having grown by 11,428 (+29.6%) from 38,577 counted in the 2000 Census, which had in turn increased by 5,180 (+15.5%) from the 33,397 in the 1990 Census. The city is part of the New York metropolitan area and contains Hoboken Terminal, a major transportation hub for the region. Hoboken is also the location of the first recorded game of baseball (although this is disputed) and of the Stevens Institute of Technology, one of the oldest technological universities in the United States.
Hoboken was first settled as part of the Pavonia, New Netherland colony in the 17th century. During the early 19th century the city was developed by Colonel John Stevens, first as a resort and later as a residential neighborhood. It became a township in 1849 and was incorporated as a city in 1855. Its waterfront was an integral part of the Port of New York and New Jersey and home to major industries for most of the 20th century. The character of the city has changed from a blue collar town to one of upscale shops and condominiums. Hoboken is part of the New Jersey Gold Coast.
On October 29, 2012, the city of Hoboken was devastated by the storm surge and high winds associated with Hurricane Sandy.
The Stevens Institute of Technology Center for Complex Systems and Enterprises (CCSE) has joined the X-Center Network as the research center in the US.
The Center for Complex Systems and Enterprises (CCSE) focuses its research on four key domains – Healthcare Delivery, Financial Systems, Sustainable Energy, and National Security – from the lens of Complex Systems and Enterprises. This trans-disciplinary Center mobilizes the research vision, experience, talent, creativity and capabilities across Stevens and our many collaborators.
These collaborations foster new research and education in systems science and engineering to enable deep understanding of complexity and create innovative approaches to managing complexity. Results include powerful technologies, tools and solutions to address complex issues in the domains of healthcare delivery, sustainable energy, financial systems, and national security.
