Genuine Hoboken Oil!
“Toxic” Situation near Neumann Leathers in Hoboken?
Former Dave’s Auto Parts a bit oily
Apparently, construction happening at the former NAPA – Dave’s Auto Parts location at Newark and Willow – also comes with a boatload of yummy oil underground that has surely “added character” to the neighborhood for years and years!
How bad can it be? Can it hurt property values?
This type of situation appears to be standard in Hoboken, wouldn’t you say? I mean half the town is toxic, considering the industrial history in days past. And it hasn’t seemed to put a damper on the Real Estate market. Shit, we have mercury lots, and other sites with petroleum-based toxins – and I haven’t noticed anyone with three eyeballs yet.
But should downtown residents be worried? If not for their property values, but for their health?
