Hoboken Week in Review 11/26/2006

Was a less busy week due to the Thanksgiving Holiday, but here’s a recap of some stuff Hoboken411 covered last week.

As always, please feel free to send tips, pics, and comments to: Hoboken411@gmail.com. Not sure about the rest of you, but I’m STILL tired from the turkey feast. Note to self: no snacks before dinner, no more white wine. Ever.

minicalendar.JPGNews, items of importance:

  • 77 Hudson Park
    Read as tenants fight back against absurd increases in their rent from a corporate machine.
  • Hoboken loses a great man
    Highly respected journalist and Hoboken friend John M. Higgins passes away.

Town Government:

  • City Council may lose weight
    And not from dieting. The Mayor is proposing council size changes.
  • West side, yo
    Seems as if yet another parks promise may fall by the wayside.
  • Another Mayor sets a good example
    Our Mayor has not much to say, other than “I have lots of money.”
  • Standard Operating Procedure
    Usually goes unnoticed. In Hoboken, it’s “big news” and reason to celebrate.
  • Ass-Phalt
    Some tidbits about this awe-inspiring “paving” that’s taking place. I’ll never wash my hand again after touching that heavy equipment on 8th Street. Wow.


  • Macy*s Parade
    Not 100% Hoboken, but a Hoboken resident and Hoboken411 reader sends his exclusive behind the scene photos of this annual tradition. It should be noted, though, that the Macy*s parade design studio is in Hoboken!

New or Coming Soon:

  • Maxwell Place
    Just an update on this Real Estate project and how over-hyped it certainly is!
  • Sri Thai
    The best Thai in the area finally gets a makeover. More coming over the next week!


  • Catch of the Day
    We thought they may be doomed, but apparently not. An antique furniture store seems to be “stayin alive”


  • Gala Pilates
    Not necessarily a review, but an update since she renovated her studio front.

Fun, Games and Random Observations:

Recent Town Incidents:

  • Check the Incident Map
    Sorta like a broken record, but not quite. Just different artists singing the same skipping song!

Re:Sirens—heard something interesting about this. The constant sirens in this city is something that just gnaws at me and i happened to mention it to my buddy from LI

A friend of ours is married to fireman out there.
It was mentioned on here that all the firehouses have to respond. Well out on LI he said they do the same to justify their budgets. He even said that he once had to set trash can on fire so they could respond. I just think that the politics are similar here.

This doesn’t sound so unbelievable to me. Anyway, I thought this was a worth mentioning.
