More tricky real estate advertising

9/2/2008:

Ok, we all know Maxwell Place is a big deal, and the largest Real Estate project currently under construction in Hoboken.

However, I still get irritated when the marketing gurus constantly misrepresent our city.

In this nice picture of a couple walking down a peaceful tree-lined street, how many people stop and say, “hey, that isn’t Hoboken – That is Manhattan”?

But potential buyers still get mesmerized, soak up the visuals and whip out their checkbooks… amazing.

Living at the center of close to Manhattan.[/quote]

Should that be living closer to Manhattan than the center of the town?

It is keeping consistant with all the lies and phony pictures that Mayor Roberts pitched to the residents of Hoboken, that there was going to be a baseball field there for all the children to play on, like where the first baseball game was. It’s for the children.

Uhh… remember all those phony, rigged “call-in” frenzy sessions for the pre-sales? What do you think all of those decisions to buy were based on?

What about the one they had previously that showed a couple seated at a Parisian cafe, sipping espresso while young people cruised by in their italian scooters.
