Would you tout a half accomplishment in Hoboken?
I find stickers that I spot in and around Hoboken quite interesting. A harmless way to “communicate” something to those that catch a glimpse. And you have a whole range to see, too. From environmental nut-jobs, to conspiracy kooks, college debt, people named “Vinny,” and even encouraging people to read. But one of the latest trends I’ve noticed are touting “half accomplishments.”
Would you be proud to say “I couldn’t finish the job?” Or “My kid got C-minuses on his report card!”?
That’s what our world has come to apparently, right up there with last-place trophies, now we have something called a “half marathon,” and people proudly spend the cash to put “13.1” stickers on the backs of their cars. Is it just marketing? Or the ever-growing narcissistic need for attention?
Conceived and launched in 2006, the original Hoboken Photo of the Day category contains thousands of pictures and includes many other subsections, including Drunk Bread Crumbs, HDR Photography, Hoboken Digital Art, and more.
We feel that by photo-documenting the city of Hoboken season after season, “a picture is worth 1000 words,” and can tell a myriad of stories encompassing the good, bad and the ugly contained within the mile-square. Our constantly-evolving way of maintaining a historical archive of memories and sights.
