Hobokenpix: Man on Roof
[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]
Hoboken Photo of the Day – 3/26/2009
While it’s not uncommon for people to be on rooftops in Hoboken (whether for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade – or just workers needing access for repairs) – this guy on top of the building on the northwest corner of 11th and Hudson Street yesterday caught my eye from Elysian Park…
He was standing up there for like 10 minutes in one spot, and I was wondering if he was going to jump! But then I thought otherwise – he was probably just taking in the views.
Then a funny thing happened this morning – I was telling Margaret (the 11th Street Crossing Guard) that I saw some guy on the roof yesterday – and she said “Yeah? We’ve been getting robbed lately!” Then just after noon today – a call comes into the Hoboken Police – and her and 5th Ward Councilman Peter Cunningham were suspicious of these guys on the roof. What the heck? I wasn’t accusing anyone of anything! A couple guys were just fixing a chimney (like I suspected!)
