Hoboken Snakes

WTF is up with Hoboken snakes?

Last weekend, Hoboken resident wdgewood spotted a pile of snakes on Sinatra Drive, citing that “they must like the NYC view.” Haha!

But it appears that snakes are popping up more often than I can recall…

Another resident named Dennis also spotted one this morning – but this time far from the waterfront on Madison Street.

And we thought snakes only hung out at City Hall? Who woulda thunk?

Snakes, skunks, opossums and crows will all be gone once this administration is removed. Please vote on June 2 and Nov 4.

Hang around outside city hall around 4 each day and if you’re lucky you’ll get to see a snake riding a bicycle.

This area has always been loaded with snakes. Even the name “Secaucus” is based on snakes.

A few years ago I read an autobiography of a Dutch guy (Cornelius Willemse) who jumped ship in Hoboken in the 1880s (at age 15) and fled up into the cliffs in back of town. As he hid there for three days he reported shanty towns and snakes – lots of snakes – which “all seemed to want a look of me.”

I can understand the ones near Sinatra Drive because some there’s some brush and rock formations there but Madison Street? Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaat.
