Hoboken Lost and Found HQ

Hoboken Lost and Found Reminder

Just a brief refresher for the Hoboken Lost & Found section here, specifically if you’ve FOUND something that you’d like to return to it’s rightful owner.

If you look at my list below – one the best and easiests way to help – is to snap a photo of what you found – and simply just bring it to Hoboken Police Headquarters. This way, you can spread the word by sending a photo to Hoboken411 – but the person can claim their missing item(s) at Police HQ at any time (and you won’t have to be involved at that point forward). This will also help deter some people from trying to claim something that doesn’t actually belong to them. That type of person typically doesn’t like police stations.

Report your Hoboken Lost and Found items here

This will be the section where you can try your luck at finding your property (or the owner of found property) in Hoboken. Please leave a comment – with as much detail as possible, and your email or phone number if you can.

If you’re not comfortable with leaving your personal email address, either sign up for a new one to be used solely for this purpose, or ask if people can email 411 if they’ve found what you’re looking for, and I’ll connect the two of you.

The new feature can be accessed in the top menu bar:

Everything Else > Lost and Found > Hoboken Lost and Found HQ

Some other guidelines for this section:

  1. No pets! Send an email to Hoboken411 if you’ve lost or found a pet. “Living beings” get treated differently from material items.
  2. Try calling the appropriate places first. Like the Hoboken Police (201-420-2100) or the respective form of transportation you took (Cab, NJ Transit, PATH, Ferry, etc.)
  3. When finding valuable items, be less specific. In other words, leave out model numbers, etc. This will help ensure the proper person claims it.
  4. When in doubt – it’s always best to drop found items off at the Hoboken Police Station downtown. You can leave a note here if you’ve done that.
  5. Stick specifically to lost and found. Either the item(s) in question or generally helpful tips. Bashing on here helps no one.

That’s about it! Good luck with your stuff!

For those of you that ride the subway, if you pay attention that MTA has a “What to do and where to go” poster on most subway cars for the MTA’s lost and found closet. On this poster there are illustrations of various things that one may lose. Animate depictions of radios, wallet, hats and then on the top right is an animated prosthetic leg?

I mean come on? How do you leave your leg on a subway? Always found that sign amusing. H411 Lost and Found is way better too.

Unfortunately, the lost keys haven’t turned up. Now we’re hoping to avoid paying Honda a ridiculous sum for a new key. If anyone has a suggestions that don’t cost an arm and leg, please email me at lostkeyshonda@gmail.com. Ex- or current car thieves welcomed, and your secrets are safe with me! :)[quote comment=”193068″]Confuscious once said “Man who lose key to girlfriend house get no new key”.

Try calling SW Lock on Kennedy Ave in Union City 201-319-3905 and see what light they can shed on the topic. They have a specialty in automotive keys. No, I don’t work there.[quote comment=”193228″]Unfortunately, the lost keys haven’t turned up. Now we’re hoping to avoid paying Honda a ridiculous sum for a new key.
