Hoboken Week in Review – 4/26/2009
Updates and Milestones
Skipped the last Week in Review to spend time programming some new features that’ll be coming soon on Hoboken411. So this entry will encompass the last couple weeks.
Oh, and without any fanfare – Hoboken411 reached some interesting milestones in the past week or so – surpassing 150,000 user comments and 50 Million pageviews! My oh my how time flies!
So with that out of the way, what made the most discussed entries for the two weeks ending Sunday, April 26th, 2009?

- DOOMED: Noticed that S&A Pasta had cleared out…
