Who puts sharp razor blades in trees?

Meh. Hoboken resident Kelly sent in this pic and said:

“Was outside chatting near 11th & Clinton and noticed this razor blade sticking out of a tree! Not sure why or how long it was there – but I’m glad I noticed this before I leaned on or put my hand on the tree!!”

Well, sure – it does look like to could be a hazard to someone. Just like many other things in town if you don’t pay attention. Street signs, trees, curbs, etc.

I would have pulled it out and moved on – but who knows, maybe some psycho is starting a new trend in Hoboken with sharp objects in places you’d least suspect. So we shared it “for the record.”

Have a nice day!
