Augie’s new spot: 419 Adams Street

4/21/2010 Update:

Augie’s has a new home!

Yes it’s been true for quite a while – but this spot at 419 Adams Street was indeed taken over by Augie’s (previously at 461 5th Street). This re-located and updated liquor and convenience store has a much expanded cooler section – and an improved, cleaner look! Welcome Augie’s to their new spot, and support local Hoboken businesses!

Another Hoboken liquor store?

This location at 419 Adams St. (across the street from the Russo Civic Center and Fiore’s Deli) has been vacant for quite awhile. At one point during the long-gone real estate boom, it was some kind of mortgage broker…

I poked my head in last week to see what was happening, and tried to chat with one worker (who spoke practically zero English). After multiple successful attempts, I finally used hand gestures and sign language and he uttered “Lee-Kor Store!”

Not sure if it’ll be a full-fledged place for booze, or just a bodega that can sell it as part of their offerings. Kind of odd, since Augie’s is right around the corner on 5th Street. Who’d approve that?

The owners of the Russo building want to make it bigger. Keep the club on the first floor, turn the floors above into condos.

I feel for a neighbor that rents their now and has to look for somewhere else to live.

Replying to Alpuj above: the “outside Auige’s” crowd did indeed relocate themselves to hang around the shop at its new premises, right opposite the Russo building (which is going to be expanded upwards by two stories, as far as I know). Greeatt…

Whoever the hell it is got some shady deal from the city considering that building is not zoned for a liquor store. I think they pulled it off by saying it was a “bodega liquor license” which is different than a regular liquor license supposedly. Whatever…. right?

Whatever it is, it’s bullshit. There used to be an office where this creep is opening up and I just feel so sorry for the residents of this building.

Little people being taken advantage again. Disgrace!

I was wondering what kind of dog that is in the Gravatar. Airedale? Lakeland terrier?

He is a 16 year old Yorkie named Joey. We call him Benjamin Button though because he just keeps getting younger and has had 20 lives already.

I think Augie’s may be leaving that spot. Don’t know if they are moving to this spot, or just leaving all together. Should be interesting if the outside Augie’s crowd moves to hang out across the street from the outside Russo Association crowd.
