The idea that young professionals leave Hoboken when their kids reach school age is nothing new; former Hoboken resident Evelyn Nieves wrote about it in her 1994 New York Times story entitled "Hoboken: Having it all, and then leaving it." So have things changed in 18 years?
Perhaps. Hoboken's population of families has grown. Local mom Kathy Zucker points out on her blog that the article failed to take into account other reasons why growing families might leave Hoboken, including the lack of affordable three-bedroom homes.
Zucker says she pointed the WSJ reporter toward various families, but they weren't quoted in the story.
