Then and Now: 4th and Bloomfield

11/23/2009:

Not much has changed!

A great comparison between “then and now” in Hoboken – although thankfully, this somewhat run-down looking building (which was Jac-O-Dine well over 50 years ago) at the corner of 4th and Bloomfield is *finally* getting a new tenant after what seems like a decade!: Cartridge World (currently at 419 Washington Street).

Thanks, Jack (no relation) for the pic!

I believe the men’s store on Wash. was called Mr. Ed’s and Charlie Red worked there…Charlie is the brother of former mayor Dave Roberts and worked there prior to becoming a Hoboken firefigher and he once served as Hudson County Coordinator of Emergency Management…there is a common dot connection between Jack-o’s and Mr. Eds…..no big deal….just history.
