Hoboken is far from perfect…
The Truth always trumps a Phony Façade!
Publications about Hoboken (or any other city for that matter) should never exclusively contain bogus good news nuggets, phony reviews, and blatant advertorials. 99% of the people see right through them – and quickly disregard as an unreliable source of accurate information.
With that being said, I’m sorry to say that many Hoboken residents are dissatisfied with the conditions of various parts of the city. They’re sick of hand-crafted press releases and strategized media manipulation – and want to share with other hard-working dwellers the issues they’re concerned with.
Hoboken still needs a plethora of work.
Many 411 readers sent in gripes yesterday alone, two specific ones I’ll mention today are:
From Rich K.:
“The recession must be over. They’ve started building overpriced, cookie cutter, generic design condos again in Hoboken. Imagine the street theater when the
victims new owners find out that the block between Madison, Jefferson, 11th and 12th floods every time it gets foggy, let alone rains! Thanks again for a great site!”
“If you want to see really horrible roads, look at Adams between 13 and 15th – also Madison in the same areas. Those of us driving over towards the GWB or Lincoln tunnel from that area need water wings and a sky lift to avoid the huge ditches.”
