Sunday morning street scene
I had to take a walk this morning – since I couldn’t sleep – and because of the lack of fiber in my diet recently.
So Saturday night was a pretty wacky thrill ride in Hoboken. The amateur drunks seemed to be out in full force (I overheard many incidents of vandalism over the Live Police and Fire action channel too – including many burglarized and smashed automobiles downtown).
Additionally there was an event at the Elks Club – which caused problems of their own (double and triple parkers, disputes, noise, music, etc.)
So what was the aftermath this morning? (see 11 more pictures after the jump…)
Drunks, Slobs, Destroyers and Thieves
I didn’t realize this would turn into a post until I was already halfway through my trip – but along the way were countless broken bottles, spewed refuse and discarded food packaging and vomit. That, on top of at least TWO “shoeless” walks of shame… my oh my, what are they putting in the drinks these days?
Hoboken Gold Exchange was apparently robbed. The front door was smashed in – and it appeared that several items were missing from the front display case…

(Sloppy Sunday, continued…)
Drunks ruin our town
Then across the street – it appears that a group of drunken douchebags decide to wolf their food down at the bus stop in front of Johnny Rockets. French fires, a glass bottle of ketchup – and what appeared to be *rice* on the sidewalk (hope that wasn’t vomit.. blech.)
McDonald’s is a magnet for angry drunks
A block up the road – it seems as if some window smashery was taking place at McDonald’s. Not only that the entire downtown reeked of stale beer and eggs. Lovely. You may want to re-consider that country house one day.
At least they have security cameras. Do you get one of those in a Happy Meal these days?
Pita Grill is smashed too
I could have sworn this had been smashed before – perhaps I’m just confused and delirious.
Just plain gross
Frankly – we did see many city employees with their rolling garbage cans cleaning up much of the mess left behind (on top of those Hoboken recycling trucks smashing thousands of glass bottles). Additionally, street sweepers do roll by at 6am refreshing the streets in the “urban barfare zones” downtown – so kudos to those that help bring our city back to a more respectable level. This is one of the services that should NEVER be cut from the budget.
But I think these drunken slobs should be held responsible for their actions. With all these Security Cameras going up around town – the city should start a “City Offender” website – and post full resolution pictures of the drunks that leave their mess behind for all to see.
Anyway – this disgusting garbage area in midtown made me gag a little. A filthy pigeon – pizza slices – spilled sauce – and god knows what else.. Urine? Awful!
Do you think the overall “drunkenness” of the city has gotten worse? Stayed the same? Or even gotten better?
