Hobokenpix: Will we have fireworks?

[Continuing the Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]

Hoboken Photos of the Day – 11/16/2008

With New Year’s Eve only about 6 1/2 weeks away – I stumbled across a few file photos of the famous Bloomfield Street Fireworks display I captured back on January 1, 2007.

This past New Year’s, Public Safety Director Bill Bergin shut the display down – angering many residents that enjoyed the show for countless years. On the flip side, other residents were relieved that the dangerous pyrotechnics event fizzled out.

Hey, these are beautiful! I like the second portrait with the three blurry people– blurry is good, sometimes! 😀

[quote comment=”118986″]People…people…please….give it a break. ANY police officer knows that ANY KIND AND TYPE of fireworks IS illegal in New Jersey. So forget about getting a permit. The permit in question, after referring to the law, is for the fireworks we see at the Italian Feast. I believe they are Class B fireworks. Looking at some of the past pics, I see not only police but firemen as well ENJOYING the show.

So, I guess you can do anything in Hoboken.

I applaud Director Bergin attempting to stop the show…but..
we’ll see what happens.[/quote]
Attempting to stop it? Wasn’t it stopped? Safety should prevail. It is illegal and unsafe ❗

This is why Hoboken needs three times the firemen a comparable NYC neighborhood would have, I guess. I’m glad those cars in the picture weren’t mine.

I standing behind your gate with a beer is so dangerous that it is worthy of arrest and a $1000 fine, nobody should be allowed to fire off illegal and dangerous fireworks in the middle of the street.
