Potential Hoboken Billboards
Death threats for freedom of speech?
Thought you might find this followup to one of the billboards mentioned below. Another man really liked the Obama Billboard he saw online and bought one for his own state. He received death threats!
What’s up with that?
What billboards would you like to see in Hoboken?
Was working on another project here at Hoboken411, when I came up with this “Friday Fun” photo parody idea.
In a story published on 411 last month – we talked about how cash-strapped (non-surplus hording) cities like Miami, FL were instituting gargantuan billboards to generate much needed (non-tax increasing) revenue. Well, since that idea would never fly in Hoboken – we could still feasibly install a few more “regular sized” billboards at strategic locations, right?
I banged out a couple quick ideas, like what if a big billboard was constructed near the PATH station / Taxi-stand? One good ad could be bought by Fleet Feet – promoting walking instead of lazy cab-rides:
And Hoboken’s premier Jeweler W. Kodak could reach out to those men who haven’t quite made their relationship commitments “official,” by using a little straight up guilt instead of just pictures of gorgeous rings and diamonds!
Lastly this is no parody – but a real billboard purchased by a resident in Texas during the whole Obamacare health care debacle. I’m sure we could find a spot for one of these somewhere in the Mile Square or the tri-state area!
But then again – we’re already creeping towards giant billboards with the massive real estate head shots now popping up!
