Flashback Hoboken: 470 weeks ago
Memories from 470 weeks ago – Flashback Hoboken
Here’s another entry for the Flashback Hoboken time capsule category. What gems did we come up with this week?
Remember Fabco Shoes?
Fabco Shoes was a decent place for el-cheapo shoes that you didn’t have to care about. I recall buying some winter boots there that I might actually still have!
It’s now a Starbucks where every customer is heads-down updating their social media apps.
O’Donoghue’s remains in my memory as one of the dumpiest places to hang out. My uvula always became swollen due to the perpetually dirty beer taps. Makes me cough just thinking about it.
Changed to Village Pourhouse, and now to Little Town Social.
Lepore’s Chocolates moves
Hoboken used to be friendly!
Not only did Hoboken have “welcome” signs – but also had signs thanking people for visiting the city.
None of that anymore! Because if a politician’s name can’t be on it – they don’t give two shits! Plus, this takes up valuable room for more cookie-cutter condos!
