4th of July restrictions “Applied”

7/3/2009:

One Hoboken411 reader is totally annoyed at the rules and regulations being issued at various condo/apartment towers in Hoboken. Specifically 333 River Street.

Communist America? Damnit!

“Did you know how pathetic and ridiculous Applied Management Company is in their handling of the fireworks for 333 River Street residents? As you may know, 333 River has two large decks facing the Hudson on its 4th floor. at least the northern deck will provide a great view for the Macy’s show. The southern deck may as well.

Earlier this week we received a notice advising we are permitted to have guests, but the only item allowed on the 4th floor decks are blankets. No strollers, grills, coolers, etc. How liberating? Management, along with muscle from off duty Hoboken police officers, also went around during St. Pats Day shutting down parties at 4pm because of noise.

Please advise our community of how absurd Applied is!”

For renters - what is better?

Why do you think these “managed” buildings are so locked down?

You’re paying the price because of all the ass-heads who trashed our town for St. Pat’s. Laws are not made for the law-abiding. They’re made for the lowest monkey among us. Think of the biggest jackhole you ever met. That’s the guy who is the motivation behind making the rule.

Unfortunatly not everyone has what is called common courtesy for others. Because of this, rules like this are needed.

The submitter should count their blessings. I have the “privilege” of living in one of Jeff White’s buildings, which is “maintained” about as well as a tire fire. It doesn’t sounds like Applied’s deck restriction is Draconian – it’s enforcing civility that might otherwise not exist. YOU may want to bring a grill onto the deck, but maybe everyone else doesn’t want to stand in the waft of smoke. Strollers take up a lot of space – I have a kid and I wouldn’t think of dragging a stroller onto the deck, on which I presume space is somewhat limited. I can understand wanting to bring a cooler – I might have a beef with that since it can also serve as a seat, but on balance, it really doesn’t sound that bad. It’s not like you have to go to the deck, either.

Unfortunately, your fellow residents might be unable to act like adults unless they’re forced to. I think Applied is trying to do the right thing; I doubt their motivation is spite.

I think a lot of buildings fear a repeat of St. Pat’s but I think most of it is an over reaction. The type of partier who comes to Hoboken or goes nuts on St. Patty’s day is down the shore for the 4th.

I’m not surprised at the draconian measures after the St.P’s debacle and resulting property damage. Our building will have security guards and no parties are allowed in the common courtyard. Roof off limits. In addition ID will be checked against the names from the rental leases (I’m not sure what this means for guests but it won’t be a party friendly location). Personally I’m relieved by the decision of our management company. It’s too bad people can’t police themselves- it spoils it for everyone else.
