Hoboken Week in Review – 1/17/2010
Long Weekend for some!
This may be a “second Saturday” for some of you, due to tomorrow’s Martin Luther King holiday. If so, continue enjoying your extended weekend!
So what made the most noteworthy entries for the week ending Sunday, January 17, 2010?
The investigation and lawsuits are over (NJ vs. Stevens) – and the whole thing has been settled. Raveche retires with golden parachute!
Ironically, while MLK day is coming up – the city hall administration is void of true racial equality – but rather campaign contributors and soccer buddies.
The annual Hoboken St. Patty’s Day festivities are planned for March 6, 2010. Many folks avoid like the plague.
- SAFETY or FINES?
A revised NJ bill touted as “pedestrian safety” does nothing extra to help pedestrians, but rather increases fines for drivers.
One resident believes there was some shadiness in regards to a supposed lost phone at a restaurant – some think otherwise.
One report says that apartment vacancies are at a 30-year high. How does that translate for Hoboken?
A reader is turned off by un-cooked chicken and a raw attitude at a local Mexican bar / restaurant.
2010 is looking like a strong year already for “Pedestrian Pinball,” as yet another person gets struck – this time a kid!
A Hoboken High School Principal signs off, and a debate ensues about her qualifications, and why she left.
- WHAT’S NEXT?

- UPDATES: Late night dining got a bit better in Hoboken – with Stacks Pancake House now open 24 hours on weekends, plus extended weekend hours from It’s Greek to Me! And Kidville Annex is getting much closer to opening it’s doors. Lastly – a little photo update for Maroon Coffee.
- DOOMED: Frozen Monkey finally got fatal frost bite – and it’s rumored that Windmill Hot Dogs & Burgers might possibly take over.
- COMING SOON?: Some buzz around town that a Village Pour House is considering opening up their taps in the Mile Square.
