Hoboken was settled in 17th century. It was originally an island surrounded by Hudson River inhabited by the Lenni Lenape Native Americans. The land was sold to the Dutch West India Company in 1633 and later leased to a farmer who built a house and a brewery on Castle Point. In 1664, the English took possession of the area. After the Revolutionary War, the State of New Jersey confiscated the land from William Bayard, the current owner of the land.

Colonel John Stevens purchased land from the State of New Jersey at auction. This land is now the City of Hoboken. Col. Stevens built his estate at Castle Point.

Edwin Augustus Stevens bequeathed the estate in 1868 and founded Stevens Institute of Technology. This is the oldest technology university in the United States.

Sybil’s Cave, oldest manmade structure in Hoboken, was created in 1832 by the Stevens Family. This cave housed a mineral spring. The water from the spring was sold as a curative beverage for a penny per glass. An unsolved murder located near the cave was the basis for the short story “The Mystery of Marie Roget” by Edgar Allen Poe. He eventually transplanted the story to the Seine River in Paris, France. The cave was closed in late 1880s due to spring contamination and eventually filled in with concrete. The cave reopened in 2008.

Client Reviews
We had a wrongful termination issue combined with a denial of unemployment insurance. Chris Eibeler was our primary attorney. His partner Bob Smith also consulted and gave us good advice. They were both so kind, caring, and professional. They guided us though a very tough time and a positive outcome versus a prior employer. They were also able to reverse our denial of unemployment insurance. I cannot recommend Smith and Eibeler highly enough. The entire staff is very professional, personable, and caring. Tom Wilson
I went to Smith Eibeler LLC for a last minute unemployment matter. Chris, Diane and his staff were very professional and easy to talk to. They provided knowledgeable insight and also kept me in the loop with the what was happening. I would not hesitate to go to him again. John Jung
Chris Eibeler (and the whole team) is very knowledgeable in all aspects of employment/unemployment here in NJ. They break down the most difficult aspects of the law, which allows you to conceptualize and better understand the complexities of the NJ Labor & Employment system. Smith Eibeler should be your first call regarding any Employment, workforce, or Labor questions here in New Jersey. I highly recommend them. Brian Allen
I approached Chris Eibeler regarding an unemployment case in early 2016. Him and his staff are some of the most professional people I have ever dealt with. The process took a while, but his approach to hard questioning helped me win my case. He knows how to get the job done and I am glad I went to him. I would recommend him to anyone in the future who asks for a lawyer. Thank you Chris! Tim F.
I highly recommend the office of Smith Eibeler for employment related issues, particularly anything related to restrictive covenants or post-employment contracts. I found Smith Eibeler via the web and cannot believe how fortunate I am to have found them. My case was handled by Bob Smith who represented me in a potential lawsuit by my former employer for violation of a post-employment contract (not a restrictive covenant per se). Bob was professional, friendly, understanding, and above all extremely helpful. Bob helped me avoid a lawsuit and was extremely knowledgeable in this field. I was thoroughly impressed with his prowess. Hopefully I will never have a legal issue related to employment again, but if I do, I will not hesitate to retain Smith Eibeler again! Gavin Tully
