Does common sense require a warning?
Common Sense Warning Signs along Hoboken waterfront
Not sure you’ve noticed this – but along the Hoboken waterfront are “Warning” signs about the “dangerous currents” from the Hudson River. And along with the big bold WARNING letters are cute symbols saying “No Diving,” “No Swimming,” and “No Sitting.”
Don’t be an idiot is more like it
Anyone with common sense does not need to be reminded of this (probably at the recommendation from the cavalry of attorneys at city hall…)
These were obviously put in place due to the suicide of Andrew Jarzyk this past spring (and how the city got shamed for not having operational video cameras).
However, in the end – these signs will never stop a suicidal person from jumping in and offing themselves. So not sure why they need to ruin the great skyline view with more wasteful visual clutter. Up next? Probably graffiti vandalism on the signs.
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.
