Hoboken Monday Morning QB

5/11/2008:

You ever have one of those weekends where nothing got accomplished?

Well Hoboken411 (me) just had one (first in a VERY long time…), and believe me, it’s no fun come Monday morning. I’ll spare you the details, and sum up some random Hoboken items to start the week:

Incidents:

Did you experience any of these?

Water problems again seemed to pop up over the weekend, along with some other incidents I ran across when I caught up with my email:

  • There was a sink-hole and water issue over at 11th and Park early Sunday Morning. Residents lost water for a few hours, but it was quickly repaired. A Cadillac SUV was in danger as well.
  • Another water main break was reported over at 1st and Harrison.. nothing major, but a steady flowing stream was called in by an HPD officer.
  • A Hoboken411 reader mentioned a street brawl on Saturday night (Sunday morning) near Maggie’s Place bar. He claimed it was a “loud band of hoodlums fighting for 20 minutes” and that “the police never even showed up.” He claimed he is upset that he “pays a lot of property taxes and there was zero police presence.” I didn’t have the chance to ask him if he even bothered calling the cops. This is the kind of weekend I had.
  • Lastly, one reader was miffed that I mentioned “personal happenings” in my Twitter account. Hey, I never promised what it was going to be, I just put it on the right sidebar for sh*ts and giggles. He no longer “follows” me on Twitter. I’m heartbroken. I guess he’ll miss the breaking news now that I’m back from “vaca.”

Upcoming for May:

Here’s some notable upcoming items you might be interested in (or not)….

I’ve noticed it too. This time of year is problematic because the windows are open for the first time, but this year seems worse than the last few. I think the increased population in the NW has a lot to do with it as people take their loud walk home from Washington at 2AM.

There seemed to be a lot of street noise on Willow on Saturday night. I had to chase about 10 teens off of our front steps at 2am who were sitting there and talking loudly. There were 2 or 3 other minor incidents of groups of people screaming at each other walking down the street. This seems to be getting worse as I seem to get woken up every Saturday night now. I know some residents deal with this a lot but I haven’t had a regular problem until now. Is this something other’s have been noticing as well?
