Saturday TV: The Conrail Boyz

Modern Day Jesse James gang with Hoboken connection

Hoboken411 reader Lou thought all the readers would get a kick out of this interesting story about Edward Mongon – who was raised in the Hoboken Projects – and went on to be the clever mastermind of some of the largest train robberies in the late 1990’s. Shown on TruTv’s Masterminds series.

Also Avirex and South Pole jackets, if I’m remembering correctly. The 90’s were a much different time in Hoboken.

I think you have your dates confused. I don’t dispute that this was going on beforehand. I’ve heard stories from Hobokenites of all ages.

re this Mongon kid..This has been going on before mongon in the early 60’s..He was not even born yet..or at least a baby..35 sisters n brothers..The key was to break the train boxcar from the rest..Every tennent in the 4th ward had gold star vcrs or betas..tons of cerial..which is worth more than vcrs..Everyone was in on the swag..everyone..shhh..Then conrail used dogs..funny a dog bit a minor and his mom sued conrail…Dont give mongon all the credit..there were so many before him that taught him..
