While u were gone – Memorial Day
One of the pleasurable things that happens in Hoboken on a weekend like the one that just ended was the peace and quiet that existed!
Parking spots. No lines at the bars or restaurants. Not over-crowded at all.
Don't get me wrong, there were still people out, roof-top parties to be had, and the same amount of fun; but just easier to manage. NYC was incredibly nice and quiet as well, even though it was Fleet Week too!
But look at this shot of Washington Street at 2:30 on Saturday. It was freaky:
There were seats available at the outdoor bars. Here's a Husky laying in a pile of ice at Farside. Looked like a fun place to chill:
Still people came out. The parks and piers had plenty of people who were enjoying the weather.
One thing is that the buzz seemed to die down the minute you wandered off Washington. Take a look at Anthony David's during lunch:
I for one, hope that it stays like this for the remainder of the summer. I highly doubt it, as this was indeed a holiday weekend as well.
We'll report back to see what it's like during the upcoming weekends.
What was your experience this weekend?
