Hoboken, I choose you!.. as the best place to catch ’em all. With Pokemon Go sweeping the world, Hoboken has become a hot spot in the Pokemon trainer’s journey. In such a dense area, the average trainer can become a Pokemon Master without ever having to leave the city!
But what’s the best way to do it? Obviously, no one should be driving as they quest, right?
For the residents of Hoboken, you could probably get a pretty good start just by taking a short walk around your building. But eventually, whether you want to catch some water Pokemon by the river or get to the gym at Church Square Park, you will need to expand your perimeter. As the purpose of the app is to be active, getting in your car is not the answer to getting around. Instead, I suggest using a bike from Hudson Bike Share. You can get to the hot spots more easily, dock the bike, and walk around from there.
For the out-of-towners, you may want to come into Hoboken for an afternoon of Pokemon catching. Awesome! Taking the train would give you a great start.
If you decide to drive instead, do make sure the game is actually working before you leave…
And of course make sure that the drive over puts you in the right mindset..
But once you get here, be sure not to get too excited that you forget the rules of parking in Hoboken.
The Hoboken Parking Helper app can tell you where to park and you can (Pokemon) go from there. Just be sure to set the timer on the app so that you get back to your car in time. Catching Pokemon can make you lose track of time!
But the most important thing for my fellow Hoboken trainers out there, remember that the quest can only be as fun as it is safe. Protect yourself and your Pokemon by staying alert crossing streets, avoiding unsafe areas, and not driving while catching ’em all. Keep that in mind and you will become a true Pokemon Go Master.
I’ll see you at the gym!
