Pohlman's Hall
154 Ogden Avenue
State and National Registers of Historic Places, 1985

Designed with Italianate detailing, Pohlman's Hall is atop the Palisades overlooking Hoboken, with a view of the New York Skyline. Originally, next to the Hall was a steam-powered elevator from the base of the cliff. In 1884, a trolley trestle climbing from Hoboken to Jersey City took the place of the elevator.

Pohlman's Hall served the vibrant turn-of-the-century German immigrant community of the Jersey City Heights, Union City, and Hoboken as a restaurant, tavern, hotel, and gymnasium. Once America entered WWI, public displays of Teutonic culture and pride no longer were possible. Assembly by Germans was proscribed; the doors of Pohlman's Hall closed. After that, a boiler plant operated here. The structure now provides luxury residential housing.
