Quick updates about things in Hoboken and beyond..
- MLS Soccer star (and heartthrob) David Beckham graced Hoboken with his presence before a game at the Meadowlands – by staying at the W Hotel.
411 thinks: “Oooh – a famous sports celebrity may (or may not) be in that building!” Verdict: Would have posted if I had time.
- Barack Obama was involved with a big shid-dig for NJ Governor (and Hoboken resident) Jon Corzine over at the PNC Arts Center.
411 thinks: “All these people are gaga for this event – but the American taxpayer PAID for Obama to endorse a political candidate. How would you feel if Hoboken’s Mayor traveled around on your dime just to support one of multiple candidates? I’m sure you’d bitch about it.” Verdict: Double-standards and Obama is essentially being “worshiped” at this point!
- Lastly – US News and World Report came out with their list of “Best Hospitals” in the country report for 2009-2010. The Hoboken University Medical Center did NOT make the honor roll. (The profile on the website was also broken…)
411 thinks: “Really – I’m shocked our top-notch hospital didn’t make the list – especially with the fancy new Emergency Room!“ Verdict: Undecided.
