Bruce Springsteen – Glory Days video
Miller Stadium, 5908 Jackson St. West, West New York, New Jersey.
Maxwell’s, 1039 Washington Street (At the corner of 11th & Washington St.), Hoboken, NJ.
For his 1985 “Glory Days” video, the Boss used primarily two locations; the baseball scene was shot at Miller Stadium in West New York, New Jersey and the bar performance scene was shot at Maxwell’s in Hoboken, New Jersey.
Miller Stadium, just across the Hudson river from Manhattan, is a ballpark used primarily by Memorial High School and the New Jersey Amateur Baseball League. The ballpark once played host to Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig who took part in exhibition games there the 1930’s. The field is inside a city block surrounded by homes and trees.
Maxwell’s was a former intimate music club in Hoboken that held around 200 people. Video director John Sayles was a Hoboken resident. The club closed briefly in 2013 until new owners reconfigured the space to be more of a family restaurant specializing in thin-crust artisanal pizza,
The video also features both Springsteen’s current wife at the time, Julianne Phillips and his future wife, Patty Scialfa.
