Street Cave-in: 4th and Garden
From Pipes to Pebbles
Overheard on the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel – “Street caving in at 4th and Garden.”
As you can see, about a month ago, there was a water main break in that exact area. One of the officers arriving on scene said “It’s definitely a big hole in the crosswalk, and it looks like it’s going to get worse. I’m going to shut the street down so cars don’t turn down the street.”
The joys of living in Hoboken…

Water Main Break
Reports over the Hoboken411 Live Police and Fire Action Channel indicate that there’s some kind of water main break over at 4th and Garden Streets.
No word yet on the exact size and scope of this leaky pipe, but officers responding to the scene said that Rocco, the Hoboken Hero from another recent water main break was “already on scene.” United Water is en route now, and they’re in the process of ordering salt to help prevent freezing.
Hey, didn’t they just pave that road?
