Hobokenpix: Changes abound

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

Hoboken Photo GALLERY of the Day – 12/1/2008

When I decided to create Hoboken411.com back in the beginning of 2006 – little did I know I’d have a massive database of photos to manage, archive, and store (off-site).

In the photo gallery below, you’ll see just TWENTY of the very first pictures I took specifically for 411. Each one of them had something change in the past three years (see the list after the jump). And they all happened within FIVE blocks.

PHOTO GALLERY (HOLD MOUSE OVER IMAGE TO NAVIGATE – 20 PHOTOS IN THIS SET)

See each business – and what changed, after the jump!

(Hoboken Changes, continued…)

The list would have been too long!

If I had decided to compile a complete list of business changes since 411 started, I’d be dedicating my entire life for a month to put that together (which is why I have the “Year in Review” posts – See 2006 Year in Review and 2007 Year in Review if you’re interested).

Anyway – for the gallery above – here are the 20 businesses, and what changed since the inception of Hoboken411 (in no particular order):

Can you believe that? Out of this small sample of 20 photos – only SIX have the exact same business that was there only 32 months ago.

Amazing.

PS – if you have images collecting dust on your camera or hard drive – send them in for eventual inclusion on Hoboken411! Please state how you’d like to be credited in your email, and a description – if desired!!

I really, really miss Washington Coffee and Convenience. They were such a lovely and kind family.

I miss Hobo’s, too. Aside from the occasional, unexpected freezer-burn taste, their ice-cream wasn’t bad.

If a parlor is opened up there, I hope that it sells fat-full ice-cream. 😀

I miss Hobos… Maybe someone can open an ice cream palor there again since the store that replaced it went out of business already.
