A perfect day!

5/23/2009:

Should be like this all the time

Major holiday weekends in Hoboken are the best. Plenty of parking, no over-crowding at local parks – and generally more laid back. Today is no exception. Gorgeous weather, too! Ahhhhh.

Truth-

On weekday afternoons, Church Square is a mob scene, and at certain times of the day Columbus’ playground area is so over-crowded that you can’t enter.

Though, I agree we need more ball fields and soccer fields for recreational sports.

The Hoboken parks are seldom overcrowded. Hoboken is only 1.3 square miles. What we need is active recreational space…. ballfields, tennis courts and such. This has been our problem for over 50 years plus….when I hear more ‘park space’ it sounds quite hollow….

Hoboken is a small city. Get used to it… or move.

The streets are so empty
Like so long ago
Not half as much traffic
Moving around sought of slow
It’s like back in the 70’s
Before the construction began
A much simpler time
When everyone was your friend
Play stickball on the corner
Riding your bike was cool
Or just hang out in the park
With your friends after school
The times sure have changed
As the years have gone past
Everyone’s in a hurry
To get nowhere fast
There’s no more parking
Got a car hey you’re screwed
Most people you meet
Are unfriendly and rude
As they get drunk every night
They walk around screaming
I only wish when I’m woken
That I was dreaming
Tossing around garbage cans
With no brains to spare
Acting likes slobs
As they piss everywhere
I welcome the sanity
When it comes around
And as for the madness
It’s very easily found
And let me just say
I think it’s a pity
There are so many assholes
In such a great little city!
