New Rant Corner!

12/13/2009:

Had some technical issues, and now the Rant Corner should be back online. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Rant Corner – bitch away!

New Hoboken Rant Corner 2010Here’s a place you could you could talk about anything. Bicycles, obesity, laziness, or whatever doesn’t already have a topic for it.

From time to time, some comments from other posts will be moved here as well, especially when they go so far off topic and it sort of becomes a new topic (like the Caddy on the sidewalk turning into bicycles and scooters.)

All the commenters who dislike one another, try to keep your fights here. It’d be much easier for the crowd to follow along if they’re in one easy-to-swallow pill. Of course, there’s the alternative, which is getting along and meeting out for a drink. But how ridiculous is that?

Enjoy, and don’t forget to vote next week!

Do NOT use Trusty Tails! I came home one visit to find my elderly dog stuck in a bedroom in a puddle of urine. He was so upset he was groaning. We live in a building with a doorman – who informed me that the overnight visits I paid for were not being done. The walker was leaving my elderly dog alone. After advising the company that the sitter was not actually staying overnight, I was told that I was wrong. So, my doorman confirmed the times with me that the walker was in the apartment – and the walker was not there when he claimed to be; thankfully, my building doorman cared enough to watch out for my dog! On another visit, I paid for a walker to stay in my home and care for my dog. The walker did stay overnight, but decided to go on the roof to “smoke” setting off the fire alarms and causing me to get a warning from the building!! (Getting to the roof requires the use of a ladder – no one is allowed on the roof.) Scheduling is NOT easy either. I know that the company blatantly lied twice about the availability of my chosen walker because the company apparently wants to give the inferior walkers work. So, you can’t even choose which walkers you want. I see reviews where people really like their walkers – that’s great, until you realize that they will never be able to care for your… Read more »

No water this morning due to main break. Infrastructure in Hoboken is BS.

Street parking and curb cuts…
if you park by a driveway we really should have an ordinance that states how far from the cut line you have to park, i see curb cuts that are 100% of the lot dimension(fix that too!) and people park half a car distance away. over a block thats sometimes 4 parking spaces.. not just inconsiderate, it should be a ticket.

When roads are re-paved, I’ve seen some people ‘adjust’ their lines for more space.[quote comment=”222054″]Street parking and curb cuts…if you park by a driveway we really should have an ordinance that states how far from the cut line you have to park, i see curb cuts that are 100% of the lot dimension(fix that too!) and people park half a car distance away. over a block thats sometimes 4 parking spaces.. not just inconsiderate, it should be a ticket.[/quote]

if a drive way is one way it is required to be 20 feet – two way I think is 25 feet

A driveway begins at the curb cut, or the point at which the curb begins to slope downward toward street level. A vehicle parked within curb cuts can be cited and towed. Even partial encroachments into the driveway area can result in a tow.[quote comment=”222055″]When roads are re-paved, I’ve seen some people ‘adjust’ their lines for more space.[/quote]

A lot of (most?) streets in town aren’t even that wide. Where do you get that impression?[quote comment=”222057″]if a drive way is one way it is required to be 20 feet – two way I think is 25 feetA driveway begins at the curb cut, or the point at which the curb begins to slope downward toward street level.
