Hoboken Photo Leftovers December 21 2013

In the Hoboken Photo Leftovers gallery below:

  • Photos 1-5: {Parks} Playground equipment installed at Elysian Park. Just in time for winter. A couple things. (Good) I like the park benches. Not real wood, but some kind of polymer. Looks like they might be pretty sturdy. Just hope they don’t stink like toxins in the summer. (Bad) A bit concerned about those stiff fences around the basketball court. I can see injuries like snapped fingers happening.
  • Photo 6: {Finally} And over at Stevens Park they rectified the entry gate, which looks well built – but completely abandoned the flashing on the roof of that fruity sitting area. Kind of defeats the purpose if water gets through, right?
  • Photo 7: {Pathetic} Every day you walk past the back of Carlo’s Bakery – you’ll spot a gaggle of giddy fat pigs who want to see what they idolize (and probably eat) on TV. No way these can be the future leaders of this country.
  • Photo 8: {Sensible} The folks at Little Town New Jersey did the right thing by winterizing their front doors. Got breezy if you sat at the bar up front!
  • Photo 9: {Work} Progress being made to the facade of the Hoboken Wine House liquor store. Nothing major, just a makeover.
  • Photo 10: {Work} The Pearson Education project hit a milestone, as they’re above sea level now. And isn’t that crane über massive?
  • Photo 11: {Work} And some serious detail to the 1415 Park Place building. You can tell it will be a quality structure.

Enjoy the last weekend before Christmas, and ration some energy for New Year’s!

About Hoboken Photo Leftovers

Hoboken Photo Leftovers is part of the Hoboken411 Photo of the Day series.

These are photos that didn’t necessarily warrant an individual posting on Hoboken411.

They may have been related to other stories – or completely independent. These photographs are remnants of our travels in the past week. But equally important in maintaining an historical record of “life as we know it” in the Mile Square City.

At the same time, these photographs may also mirror the unique personal opinion of the publisher of Hoboken411.com.

Regardless, the pictures add to the “virtual encyclopedia” that this site now represents. Thank you for your readership!
