Perpetual snow clean fail in Hoboken
They used to be good at cleaning snow in Hoboken. Now? FAIL!
Here’s a little photo essay that summarizes what winter in Hoboken has been like for the past five or so years: A giant snow fail!
I remember when Roberts was in office – it didn’t matter how much snow we had. They cleaned that shit up like ASAP. Trucks would HAUL the snow away within days.
Now? Multiple “street cleaning” weeks go by. And yet difficult icy snow conditions remain – even months later! Some streets never get “treatment” at all!
Let’s see some examples…
Empty Streets – No cleanup
Residents did their “fair share” and moved their cars. Where was the city? How come previous administrations did it better?
Bus Stop Danger Zones
No one put any effort into ensuring that the bus stops were clear. I guess NJ Transit kicked Hoboken to the curb.
Narrow street gauntlets
Drivers were forced park the best they could. It turned many streets into narrow gauntlets.
Handicapped drivers? They’re on their own, too!
Spotted this senior citizen couple with ICE PICKS trying to clean their spot. “Hmmph,” says city hall!
You really DO need an SUV in Hoboken!
I used to mock all the SUV drivers in an urban environment. But now I’m starting to get why!
Ahhh – but some snow DOES get cleaned!
I did see ONE instance where snow was getting removed (amazing, but true!) But I think it was “favorable” cleanup treatment – as this was in the neighborhood of Zimmer cronies and supporters.
No matter what the explanation was – we have had a VERY EASY winter when it comes to snow. There is NO EXCUSE whatsoever. Unless that excuse is “I’m unfit to be “mayor” and hereby resign.”
