Other than yesterday’s tragic incident – here’s what else happened in Hoboken the last week…

Here’s your potpourri of Hoboken!

This was an interesting week in Hoboken! While city hall didn’t pass out entirely – we were able to discuss many items other than the monotonous political landscape in town. New businesses, crazy dog park incidents, baseball and much more!!

So what made the most discussed entries for the week ending Sunday, August 9th, 2009?

A nice mix of topics this week!

    Our sneaky government steals more money from our pockets by raising taxes on the things we enjoy.
  • BOMBERS!
    The Yankees are looking better and better. Are we going to win another World Series this year?

Kudos 411. You can amend your parenthetical “hours before nj media” to “hours before the new york and national media.” I was checking the local network affiliates, nytimes.com, cnn, and fox for awhile before they had anything.
