Only in Hoboken – You can’t make this shit up!

WTF is this all about? From a distance, it looks like perhaps a motorcycle rider crashed, and landed in a tree. Nope. It’s something else, and there is no doubt you can’t make this shit up!

NAPPING in tree in Hoboken

This afternoon, an “emotionally disturbed person” who happened to be homeless as well, found his way into a tree on the perimeter of the parking lot in the back of the Monroe Center for the Arts.

Yes, as you can see upon further inspection, he in fact found a way to get comfortable within the scrappy branches of a freshly budding tree! Included with his own body, were plastic bags containing his “personal effects.”

You know, I can bet that most homeless people (who aren’t begging for handouts) probably want to be away from the rest of the world as well (at times at least – less harassment). In this spot, he most certainly “had his own space.” Sort of the way people who live in “boxes” in tall structures called “high price condos” feel (with the exception of paper thin Sheetrock and exorbitant property taxes… and running water and flushable toilets…)

But Hoboken PD asked him to come down and move along (he wasn’t charged with a crime – until the control-freak city council decides to introduce an ordinance than bans “public tree relaxation.”)

Thankfully for him, he doesn’t “toss and turn” while sleeping, otherwise he’d be in a Obamacare-funded body-cast!
