Hoboken Sidewalk Shotz Redux
Back in November 2009, I ran a week-long feature called “Sidewalk Shotz,” which was a daily photo entry displaying some of the many interesting items spotted while walking around Hoboken.
Well, it’s back with another week of sidewalk oddities!
Hoboken Sidewalk Shot: More useful rubbish!
This is one thing I truly like about our town. The countless times I spot a piece of refuse that still has some useful life! The owners are naturally inclined to advise passerby that the item is in fact not broken, just no longer wanted. So instead of going through the trouble of eBay or Craigslist (for what would probably be a couple pennies on the dollar), they incorporate the time value of their money and just give it to anyone else that cares to haul it away!
See previous updates after the jump!
If you’re not too absorbed with your mp3’s, cell phones or constantly rushing to get nowhere fast – you’d notice a plethora of mildly interesting things from the streets and sidewalks of Hoboken.
Each day this week, I’ll feature a different “Sidewalk Shot” for your entertainment. Feel free to send your odd or amusing observations in!
So what are we starting the week with?
Hoboken Sidewalk Shot: Giving to others
Spotted this bag of dog food near 11th and Willow a while back. It’s obvious this person spent some money, and despite the finicky nature of his or her pet, felt guilty about wasting it. So instead of tossing it out, they placed it on the street with an accompanying note explaining what it was. Hopefully, someone may have gotten some use out of it!
