Our City is pretty trashy!

5/14/2010:

Does anyone care how dumpy Hoboken can be?

When the city can’t even keep it’s own streets clean – it can be very embarrassing!

Imagine bringing your Mother in-law to a show at the Monroe Center – and you have to traverse broken glass and other rubbish on the sidewalks, and see graffiti on the walls?

It’s a shame that good organizations like the Hoboken Grace Community Church even had to think about organizing 1-Day Hoboken type volunteer events to do the work of a taxpayer funded city payroll. Tsk, tsk.

the problem begins with me (resident of Hoboken), there are a minimum of two cans per block on washington on each side. Yet when I walk to Path at 7 in the morning the sidewalks are full of residential litter, not in residential cans. Some blame goes to commercial businesses as well.

This goes for other streets as well. On this one I cannot blame the city in any way. The crews in the little cushman carts go up and down the main drags all day and into the evening.

So hold on to the coffee cup, candy wrapper, napkin from the take out restaurant and find the closest can, and help keep Hoboken beautiful.

People in Hoboken are pigs, period. Any given street is strewn with garbage. I can’t even imagine throwing a piece of trash on the street or sidewalk but apparently hundreds in this city think it’s a great idea every day. Hoboken is much dirtier than Manhattan, and that’s just shocking to me.

Are you kidding me? Manhattan is MUCH grimier than Hoboken. Freewheelin, this place isn’t perfect for sure, but you need to keep some perspective.[quote comment=”192235″]People in Hoboken are pigs, period. Any given street is strewn with garbage.

If the city put trash cans in more places outside of Washington Street, that would be a start…

Monroe street has always looked a little shabby to me. So here goes:

Dear Mom-in-Law:

We live in a city of 45,000 people. So you might see some trash every few blocks.

There is the problem of workers not doing the work, but then if people were no such jerks and cleaned up after themselves there would be less for the workers to do.

My toddler was so mad at me because I made her throw out the ice cream cone that feel on the ground. We cleaned it up, not left it there for people to walk in. She is getting the hand of it and picks up trash to throw out in the park (under supervision, I don’t let her pick up just anything).
