Graffiti: Does anyone even care?

Do you care about Graffiti? Do something about it!

Since Hoboken411 began, we’ve talked about various forms of graffiti in town. Sometimes it pops up in unsuspecting areas, but otherwise it’s a constant reminder of the social decay and disrespect that surrounds us.

Should Hoboken residents “counter” Graffiti?

Common wisdom suggests that if someone “tags” the private property of someone else, that the owner will typically make the proper corrections to rid the public facing part of said property to make it less unattractive. We’ve seen this happen quite quickly in some areas of town.

But what happens if it it some kind of “public utility” box that is not owned by any private individual?

Like the postal junction boxes and utility boxes pictured in this story?

We know very well that getting a competent person on the PHONE at the power, phone or cable companies is a joke (along with local governments), so expecting this visual “social decay” to get rectified is very low on the list of priorities for these horribly bloated entities.

But what if area residents took the time to clean or paint over these bullshit tags themselves? Certainly would help overall perception and pride in the neighborhood, right? Then again, don’t automatically assume that a noble task will go unnoticed. Some thug from the local raping office city hall will probably fine you for doing something good.

This is probably one of the top 5 reasons why this country is circling the drain. Remember that.

The problem with your city is 95% of the residents are terrible excuses for people. Rich, Snobbish people with their sense of entitlement that live up and down the streets of Hoboken are the problem. They all have million dollar homes and 3 kids but can’t take care of either themselves. Instead you see a multitude of ethnic men and women catering to overly privileged white kids, with no parents to be found. What happened to the great people of this city that once made it a hard working town? Oh yea they were driven out by baby carriages and designer dog boutiques. And now instead of looking at the real problems with humans we are worrying about this “social decay” you speak of from graffiti, when in reality the snobbish, elitist attitude Hoboken has gained in the past 15 years is the real “social decay” of society.

That’s a traffic signal controller cabinet so the County should have jurisdiction over it.
