Hoboken Week in Review – 9/14/2008

Another exhausting week in Hoboken!

National politics again leads the pack, but what other subjects made the Top 10 most discussed Hoboken411 entries for the week ending Sunday September 14th, 2008?

Hottest topics of the week

  1. End of an Empire
    Midtown gym bottoms out – competing fitness centers scramble to get new clients.
  2. Fired up to drink
    Previously dumpy McSwiggan’s bar is now fancy after getting burnt to a crisp. To open any day now.
  3. City employees are “insiders”
    2nd Ward Councilwoman Beth Mason brings up controversial “affordable housing” at luxury condo.
  4. Knocking out the comptition
    The uptown Club KO facility doubles in size – perfect timing since another major gym just bit the dust.
  5. Italian festival wraps up
    Big waterfront street festival concludes – Corzine stops by – then fireworks steal the show.
  6. Pretty trash can
    Readers wonder again about how the city spends its money.
  7. Big guns needed to rob and steal
    A pedestrian gets held up. Weapon used? Some kind of automatic rifle.
  8. We are the state’s bitch
    Hoboken pretty much can’t make a move without getting approval from the state of NJ.
  9. Animal meat on a stick
    24 hour Kebab House coming soon!
  10. More animal meat coming soon to your gullet
    Cluck-U chicken may be another way to lick your fingers good in Hoboken.

AIG? WaMu?

Will GS be forced to revalue some of their L3 assets once everyone gets a good look up LEH’s financial skirt?[/quote]

AIG is a maybe, WAMU a yes. GS may need to reassess their L# assets and probably take a write-down but they have also been an aggressive seller of problem loans all along. They aren’t at as much risk as people think. They started selling the crap to the 2ndary market months and months ago and probably don’t hold that much of it any more.
