Hoboken Week in Review – 7/20/2008
What was hot last week besides the weather?
As usual, here are the Top 10 new, bumped or updated postings this week that had the best, most diverse and hottest overall discussion in Hoboken!
Hottest topics of the week
- Creepy pervert around kids at park
A man was acting inappropriately around kids at Church Square Park. Some folks think the HPD didn’t do enough.
- Hoboken Money Meter Madness
Questions remain about money possibly being “missing” from city coffers.
- Illegal contruction hearing delayed again
The Castle Point Construction Soap Opera cliff-hanger carries on.

No, not really, but Junior’s Papaya now offers a breakfast menu on weekends. Have you tried it yet?
- Foreign oil debate
Good national topic about our energy crisis stimulates conversation.
- Over-priced real estate? Really?
Continuing the “Will it Sell?” housing series over at 912 Castle Point.

Now that Frankie & Johnnies goes by another name, one Hoboken411 reader wonders about the menu choices.
- Densely packed street festival
The St. Ann’s Feast started this weekend.

Seems like everything has a salmonella risk these days, including peppers. One reader wonders what precautions one local restaurant had taken…

With the weather acting like summer (like it should), one 411 reader asks why many city water fountains are as dry a Nevada desert.

Sad news as a local kid battling a disease succumbs to the terrible illness.
- Buy one accident, get 100 free
Seems like vehicular accidents are higher than usual. Pedestrians getting hit, too.

Not one, not two, but three Q&A sessions from Hoboken411’s legal advisor.
