Hoboken NYE Fireworks: Adams Street

1/1/2010:

Happy New Year Hoboken!

So, we may have not had the awesome Bloomfield Street Fireworks this year – but doesn’t mean that we didn’t enjoy some pyrotechnic excitement in Hoboken!

Some enterprising folks in the area of 5th and Adams Street did the best they could at setting off some fun fireworks at the start of 2010. Some cameos included 3rd Ward Councilman Michael Russo, as well as a couple Hoboken Police cars who understood that this is an ongoing community event, and let it transpire without incident. I happily condensed 20+ minutes of footage to under three minutes for your viewing pleasure.

One Hoboken411 fan-girl Heather said to me tonight as she passed by when I was videoing: “Thanks again 411, for the incredible work you do – heads and tails above what anyone has or ever will do – I love you and look forward to a great 2010!”

HAVE A GREAT 2010 EVERYONE!

Permits may have been pulled and the event legal. If that was the case then the issue is who gave permission for them to be set off in a crowded residential area. If they weren’t pulled, then the issue is why do certain in the town feel they don’t have to go to the trouble to obey the law and do it in a safe legal manner. If this has been illegal and happening year after year clearly those who are organizing it don’t feel any danger of fines or arrest.

By my reading of what constitutes reckless endangerment this does. therefore it is either a misdemeaneor or even perhaps a felony

This is dangerous and illegal and could damage the cars parked on that street. Mine included.

I live at this intersection and have witnessed this activity. The police department annually ignoring what goes on–despite the clear risk to passing motorists or pedestrians, not to mention the great risk of fire–is shameful. You want fireworks? Get a permit, get a safe area, and take the proper precautions. We’ve seen time and again what happens when you don’t:

If we ever want Hoboken to be a respected 21st century city, we have to behave like grown-ups.

I have to take back my last comment. There may have been permits pulled for the event. If that is the case the issue is who gave permission to allow this to happen in a crowded residential area. If there weren’t premits pulled the issue has to be why people do not feel they need to actually pull the permits.

Once more I’m not saying don’t have the celebration, just make it legal and do it in a safe manner

If the state of NJ granted a permit then the fire department would have been there monitoring the situation.

Correct, the (HFD) Bureau of Fire Prevention and Investigation would have to monitor the conditions of the permit, if one was issued. Additionally, an insurance bond would have had to be posted to obtain the permit. The Director of Public Safety has oversite over the Fire Division.
