A perfect day!

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.

    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!

    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….

    Truth- you need to get out more… the parks are over-crowded… take a stroll to Pier A on any reasonably nice weekend day. You cannot engage in any activity without running into (or over) a causal sunbather or picnicker.

    It has gotten progressively worse over the past decade. Heck – I remember days I used to be able to play ball at Sinatra Park – but that’s essentially impossible nowadays.

    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.
