Hobokenpix: Grass Seeds

3/25/2009:

More green for Hoboken

Was milling around aimlessly the other day (not really aimless – was walking Oscar of course!) And while I was near this dumpy empty lot on Clinton between 12th and 13th – I noticed that someone threw down some grass seed on the grass along the sidewalk. Not sure if it was the city, the owner of the property – or a nearby resident who was sick of the muddy dog-crap patch.

This may be a ho-hum entry to you – but I think it’s nice to see something as minor as small patch of grass get tended to. Sometimes you gotta look at the bright side – regardless of how screwed up our city is.

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!!

That’s for sure… in the snow and ice this thing wasn’t shoveled or cleared even ONCE the entire winter…. but I’m sure that Hoboken’s crack team of professionals was all over it…. I’m sure “fines” (AKA payoffs) were in place so that at least somebody in Hoboken profited….[/quote]

but god forbid you leave your garbage can is left out past 9am. Then they’re quick to sent you a summons.
