HOBOKEN, NJ -- TAPintoTV caught up with Hoboken Mayor Ravi Bhalla at the 25th Annual Spring Arts and Music Festival held on Washington Street. More than 300 artists and vendors along with three stages of musicians were on hand to entertain the crowd.

“It’s a time-honored tradition in Hoboken,” said Mayor Bhalla, “where the community comes together.”

Alongside the vendors that lined Washington Street, Bhalla welcomed conversation at a “Meet the Mayor” booth. “We want to be as accessible as possible to residents who often have great suggestions. They have questions,” he said, “and they might have some constructive criticisms, so we want to know how we can do better,” Bhalla added.

The past 20 years have been a time of change and growth in Hoboken. “With time, industrial uses, the factories, the shipyards have really transformed into publicly accessible, beautiful waterfront open space,” said Bhalla, “which is a real treasure not just for Hoboken, but for the entire state,” he said. “Hoboken has undergone a magnificent transformation through the course of generations.”
