Hopeless and living in luxury?

What is luxury in Hoboken?

You ever wonder if the word “luxury” is abused in the Real Estate industry to the point where it should be ignored? I mean a stainless steel appliance no longer applies as “luxury” anymore – as pretty much 95% of all appliances sold at big box stores are of that variety. Heck to the rest of the world, running water, electricity and heat are MAJOR luxuries! But I digress…

One Hoboken resident who lives near 6th Street and Jackson Streets and paying close to $50,000 a year for rent – shares what she feels are some troubling circumstances that regularly happen in her neighborhood – including some recent gunshots!

Hoboken Resident: Hopeless and living in luxury on Jackson Street

“Does anyone know about the gunshots at Jackson and 6th this past Sunday at 4AM?

Lots of people running from projects past the Juliana towards the NJ Light Rail tracks. More shots were heard, a total of about four. After the fracas, the police were sweeping the area around The Juliana looking for a weapon.

No one ever reports on what is going on back here but there is constant yelling, fighting and false alarms every night into the early morning hours. We are paying very high rents, $4,000 a month!

Signed,
Hopeless and living in luxury on 6th and Jackson”

How you would rectify this situation if you were in a “position of power” in Hoboken? (i.e., police, city hall?)

City Hall and realtors want people to keep falling for the so-called “luxury” just because it claims to be.

So then they move away, appliances are… Read more »

hoboken is just another city to reside …The moronic realitors never walk that area nor do they care for the owners.. the worst area to build apts and condos over a old junk yard with battery acid and oil in the ground..Not worth 5000 per month and is not and never will be a utopia..Not to mention car theft,vandles,and the pkg problem..Hoboken never was and never will be..we deal with it..

MS Zimmer sites a strong real estate market as success. I have always known it to be the bubble leading up to the boom.

Gun shots? That just means the neighborhood is “vibrant.” It’s the kind of place NY Times editors and writers swoon over, so long as they don’t have to send their kids to school there.

Why so negative? Those gun shots are patriotic! Celebrating their 2nd Amendment rights!

Oh, wait a minute, we have obstructive gun laws, and every gun in the projects is illegal and not registered.

Sorry. Be on your merry way.
