Double edge sword: parking a losing proposition in Hoboken
They were milling 5th street recently. And they did it the day before normal street cleaning (can’t the coordinate it better?) That made parking 100 times worse than usual (and for at least the next few weeks).
But this poor sap got his SUV towed.
Why can’t they notify drivers? With all this technology abound, you’d think it would be a 5 minute app to set up. But no, when it actually helps people, and takes profit away from anyone (i.e., city hall coffers) – who would want to do that?
And if some generous programmer DID create a stupid app to get notified about parking regulations or whatever – the city lawyers would find some abstract legal clause to justify why they won’t use it. Screw ’em all!
Conceived and launched in 2006, the original Hoboken Photo of the Day category contains thousands of pictures and includes many other subsections, including Drunk Bread Crumbs, HDR Photography, Hoboken Digital Art, and more.
We feel that by photo-documenting the city of Hoboken season after season, “a picture is worth 1000 words,” and can tell a myriad of stories encompassing the good, bad and the ugly contained within the mile-square. Our constantly-evolving way of maintaining a historical archive of memories and sights.
