One of Hoboken’s largest murals was just unveiled.
Artist Beau Stanton spent two weeks capturing the city’s past and present in its historic preservation district.
A focal point of the mural is inventor John Stevens, a pioneer of steam transportation. Stevens lived in Hoboken during the early 19th century.
Stanton says it is refreshing to see that Hoboken is becoming a great place for the arts.
"I just wanted to express my gratitude for being welcomed to Hoboken to create a new work of art on this beautiful building in this beautiful town,” he says.
The Hoboken mural is located on Hudson Street between Newark Street and Hudson Place.
Stanton has murals around the world, including one in Jersey City.
