Flashback Hoboken: 80,000 hours ago
Memories from 80,000 hours ago – Flashback Hoboken
Here’s another entry for the Flashback Hoboken time capsule category. What dusty historical nuggets did we come up with this week?
Remember the mounted police?
Back in the day – Hoboken used to have their own mounted police unit. Remember that? Those horses were a riot. Best crowd control mechanism out there still! Even though they stunk like shit. All sorts of “trickery” led to their demise.
They were briefly replaced by dopey segway scooters – and now we’ve hit rock-bottom: Bicycles.
Melina’s Pizza at 6th and Adams was considered by some to be the best pizza Hoboken ever had. Along with tasty garlic knots and empenadas.
I know some people in town who’ve stopped eating pizza altogether since they closed down.
Now replaced by Dozzino Artisinal Brick Oven Pizza.
Sinatra Drive Doom Strip
Boy, this section along Sinatra Drive between First and Second Streets has seen it’s share of revolving activity.
