Cleaning up St. Patty’s!
Last Friday, this story ran on Hoboken411 about what you and other people, businesses and entities were doing to “protect” their turf from the few inconsiderate revelers who give Hoboken’s St. Patrick’s Parade a bad name. And in the comments section, I posted a photo of a “notice” that was in reader bryan999’s building. Well – here’s a little follow up…
St. Patty’s aftermath NOT pretty
“So it turned out that at least three apartments threw parties in our building. By 3:30 in the afternoon, our building was packed with loud, stupid drunken college brats who left their disgusting slop and filth everywhere. Puddles of Bud Light and who knows what else in the hallways, blood splatters on the walls in the stairwell, crushed cigarette butts and cans soaking in a half-inch pool of liquid skank in the elevator, a stale stench of dirty ashtray wafting throughout the littered lobby… all this only begins to describe the foul nastiness I observed. Too bad I didn’t bust out my video camera and film this nightmare, but I did manage to take a couple snapshots as I made my way outside at one point (which reminded me of trying to make my way through a crowded subway car).
It also turns out, ironically, that the previously mentioned “announcement”, taped on every wall and door a few days earlier, was just nothing more than an empty threat. It was also a complete LIE.
There was no “security firm”, there was no “gestapo”… there was nothing… you’d think at least maybe have some rent-a-cop keeping the peace in the lobby at least, but no – not even that… and to make it worse, the fool neighbors of mine hosting these parties didn’t seem to give a crap how much of a mess their jackass guests made to their own building!”

What else will be on lockdown?
You all know the Hoboken Police will be in full force tomorrow – Zero Tolerance, DWI checkpoints, the whole nine yards.
But what about other Hoboken entities? What about your home or business?
- I inquired with Hoboken Universal Medical Center to see if they had any special announcement, and replied that they’ll be ready: “We are prepared and staffed based upon the volume they have experienced in the past.”
- At least one religious organization, the United Synagogue of Hoboken is looking for volunteers based on previous debauchery – with folks “disturbing services” and “urinating on the property,” they want a “security team” to protect the peace of their precious property.
Know of any other provisions made today? Which businesses will be closed? Who has extra “muscle?”
