Shanty town at Hoboken soccer field

Did you know that one of Hoboken’s newest (“need a permit to use”) parcels of “open space” uptown also came with a luxurious homeless village?

That’s right – no “park” is ever considered complete without one. This shanty town over at that soccer field uptown is over the top! Neatly organized rows of black plastic garbage bags (where are the anti-plastic environmentalists now?), fancy luggage and even premium outdoor furniture! These lucky guys may even have more square footage and skyline views than most Hoboken residents! And no nagging quarterly property tax bill either!

Are you asking yourself where you went wrong in life?
