When people talk about animals in the city today, many assert there are none. Sure, there are pigeons (some call them “flying rats”), squirrels, large Canadian geese on the city soccer field, and companion dogs and cats that mostly live inside. There are many others, but they seem to be at the margins of urban life. City Animals: A History of Our Changing Relationship with Other Hoboken Residentsencourages viewers to think about some of the other beings that have lived with us, as it traces over 150 years of city dwellers’ interactions with domesticated, companion, wild, and “exotic” animals. Over the many years Hoboken has developed from a sparsely-inhabited wetland to a densely-populated industrial (and then post-industrial) city, animals have been variously viewed as Neighbors, Workers, Food & Clothing, Pests & Strays, Spectacle & Sport, Companions & Familyand, often, more than one of these, simultaneously.

Organized by these categories, City Animalsallows us to investigate changing modes of city transportation, food production, recreation, employment, ethnic population shifts, the health of humans and animals, and education on humane treatment.
