Hoboken Week in Review: 4/25/2010
And the beat goes on…
The earth revolves, voter indifference continues, problems multiply – yet life goes on. Thank God for the (somewhat limited) freedom we still enjoy in the United States. The ability to choose (most things) still exist. One thing I’d strongly recommend to everyone reading today, is that you invest a bit more of your time into being aware of your environment. Know what political representatives and activists are doing all the way from a local to a global level. The reason I feel it’s important is because today’s issues and decisions will likely impact you in some shape or form in the future. In other words, have you ever realized the worth in being proactive instead of reactive? On that note…
What made the most noteworthy entries for the week ending Sunday, April 25, 2010?
The “three week” former Mayor Hoboken Peter Cammarano does the smart thing, and opts for a guilty plea in his corruption and extortion case.
- WOOF! OUCH!
Yet another Hoboken resident has some negative run-ins with a pit bull dog breed. What’s the problem? Animals or owners?
Less than 3,700 individuals voted during the 2010 Hoboken Board of Education Election. You have nobody to blame but yourself for city mismanagement at this point! (for those that didn’t vote)
- BLATANT LIES!
For all of you that hang on every word that one-term Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer says, how do you feel that she’s reneged on dozens of prior statements? When do you realize you’re being led to a cliff like a lemming? Are you awake?
- SENIOR GETS IT!
Long time resident and city taxpayer advocate Helen Hirsch even woke up to the fact that Zimmer is a colossal let down!
Incredible photos and video of the giant wind-swept blaze that occurred in neighboring Union City, NJ.
- BOOT YOU!
An established Hoboken resident gets hung to dry by inept city hall clerical errors. The bludgeoning doesn’t stop from the incapable powers that be.
Not as exciting as it sounds. A couple pizza places in Hoboken are looking to jump ship. Perhaps you should do the same?
- KIDNEY STONES!
The all-too-ridiculous and unneeded Pier C Park still remains un-open, however the (in jeopardy of sinking at any moment) waterfront walkway re-opens.
- DO YOU SUPPORT LOCAL ARTS?
If so – you have exactly one day (TODAY) to see the final show if “Rounding Third,” a highly acclaimed production over at the Monroe Theatrespace!
Yep! Another great week of exclusive Hoboken business updates!
- Coming Soon: The Clam Broth House is coming back with a vengeance!
- Now Open: Super hip fitness studio Local Barre says “hello Hoboken,” and a much-needed 24-hour convenience store opens up near 11th Street.
- Updated: Much loved local liquor store Augie’s Wine successfully moves half a block away, and uptown residents are still waiting for Nick’s Convenience store to open after their devastating fire last year.

Inspirational Quote of the Week:
“By far the most dangerous foe we have to fight is apathy – indifference from whatever cause, not from a lack of knowledge, but from carelessness, from absorption in other pursuits, from a contempt bred of self satisfaction”– William Osler
