St. Ann’s Curiosities
If you haven’t made it out to the 98th annual Hoboken St. Ann’s Feast yet, never fear, you have almost another week to swing by. Best weather bet of the week? This Thursday through Saturday, with temperatures holding in the mid 80’s.
However, one Hoboken411 reader sent in some random observations about parking and a certain vendor. Feel free to send your “Feast Observations” in! Check it out below.
Parking and Egyptian Sheets
“Did you know that the ENTIRE 600 block of Jefferson street is posted with “no parking” signs, in effect through Sunday, the 27th?
When someone needs to buy a spot for the day for construction or moving or whatever, the price is 15$ per spot, per 4 hrs. In drug lingo, the “street value” of what’s going on there is anywhere between $4000 – $6000. Is St. Ann’s paying for the spots? Has it been donated by the city, in violation of the state warning not to spend any more money? Also, one vendor told me that the church does not provide the vendors with parking???
It’s also odd that no one of the vendors wished to speak about how much a space cost to rent for the feast! Conspiracy?
Here’s a sign on a car parked on the 600 block of Jefferson.” (411 Note: Who reads that sign as “Sausage FEST?” Hahaha!)
And lastly, are selling sheets a hot item? WTF is that?
