Free parking tonight

7/29/2009:

Free boat, I mean car parking

The City of Hoboken announced today (at 4pm) that free parking will be available to those flood-affected areas (a bit late, no? some spots already had flooding – I posted the warning at 7am today!! C’mon!)

But nonetheless, if we get more storms and you want to keep your car safe:

Location: Garage B, 2nd and Hudson Street – Please leave your name and address with attendant. This free parking is provided only for residents living in areas impacted by the flooding.

Either way – today’s afternoon storm wasn’t as bad as the one over the weekend!

Oddly, ensuing debate centers on where protests are held. 6. Wave of pessimism envelops dynamics, protesters return to summer camp / busy gearing up for new school year. 7. Cammarano wins battle of wills / attention span. 8. Same as it ever was. 9. For the first time since the 80’s, Hoboken returns to status as a punch-line in national media. 10. “Cake Boss” gets syndication deal with Comedy Central channel. 11. See it coming: Hoboken residents outraged by State of NJ refusal to declare SE Hoboken a flood emergency area to turn flood situation into a state/ national crisis with associated bail-out funding. Municipality spikes taxes or denies culpability. 12. Promotion of the uninvolved. 13. Average town resident, not seeing this coming, doesn’t own “plan… Read more »

does that mean if we don’t feel like driving around in the floods to move our cars, we’re ok for street cleaning tomorrow??
