Hoboken Flooding Photos -7/26/2009

7/26/2009:

Our brief summer thunderstorm spawned many areas of flooding in Hoboken!

Enough for FIVE separate photo galleries!!

Legal Beans (again)

Hoboken411 reader Norbert sent this batch of photos near the infamous Legal Beans intersection and said “Did you know that alleged Cammarano bag man Michael Schaffer is one of Hoboken’s representatives on the North Hudson Sewerage Authority Board of Directors thanks to ex-Mayor Dave Roberts. He gets free health coverage courtesy of the tax payers for his “service” to Hoboken. Obviously from how well the storm sewer infrastructure is functioning Schaffer is doing a cracking job! Oh, and if you are the owner of a gray Saab convertible at the corner of Park and Newark the flood waters shorted out your alarm system which keeps going off. Probably flooded the interior of the car with sewage, too.”

SEE THE OTHER FOUR GALLERIES AFTER THE JUMP! (INCLUDING SHOPRITE AND THE SOUTHWEST PART OF TOWN!)

(Hoboken Flooding Gallery, continued…)

Southwest Hoboken

Emily sent these nice shots of the area in southwest Hoboken that is still being debated about future park space.

The “Shoprite Lake” zone

Both Andrea and “The Archangel” sent in these shot of the Shoprite area on Madison Street… always one of the first to flood in Hoboken.

Does your bathroom look like this?

411 reader Brett wondered who else’s bathroom looks like this after a nice summer flood.

If you drop your phone, the “celly becomes smelly”

Here are a couple basic cell phone shots from areas around town. Sent in by Kristen and Josh.

I’m telling you – the city needs a tourism department and some kind of canoe tour. Combine it with fresh mozz or something. The “Italian Food & Water Tour” or something along those lines….

Homeworld, it’s always flooded. If you don’t like it… get a canoe ;).

“It’s always flooded. If you don’t like it move…”

I’m waiting to read that.

Surprised the usual spot by ShopRite didn’t make the picture cut. Just up the road by 11th there’s a section along the side of the road that is at least 3 inches deep even a week after it’s rained. And if it’s raining/just rained, you’ve got about 1/2 the street covered including up and over the curb by the edge :/

Driving home down River Road last night was a nightmare.
