A sure bet for what?
Hoboken411 reader Yehuda sent in a note and a photoshop last night…
Stop insulting us! Take the banner down!
“I’ve been a resident of uptown Hoboken for a while now, and know very well what to do when there’s even a slight chance for moderate to heavy rain. I move my car to a non-flood zone in town, or at the very worst, to a parking garage. I hate the expense, but it’s a lot cheaper and less hassle than dealing with a flooded out car.
After reading your post earlier today about the awful conditions uptown, the constant floods and treacherous roads, it immediately reminded me of how pissed I get each time I see the obnoxious marketing banner for 800 Madison on the building at 12th and Adams.
Fine, I get it. They want prospective young male customers to think that Hoboken is filled with hot girls sitting poolside, and this is the life they’ve been waiting for. Phony real estate marketing has sucked many residents into believing the city is some kind of utopia. Until they’ve dealt with ongoing sewage seeping into their car and stinking up the neighborhood. Total false advertising!
In a perfect world, the ads would tell the truth. I made a quick rendition of what the banner would look like in that situation. I’d feel better about walking by it every day if was an honest message!”
