Want to swim in the Hudson?

Maxwell Place sign still amusing Hoboken residents

Although this “No Bathing” sign at the beach at Maxwell Place has been there since it opened back in 2007 – it still manages to get attention from Hoboken residents, like Katie Kubowski, who said “The Hudson River hasn’t appealed to me for swimming or bathing or anything of that sort!”

I would gladly swim in the Hudson … many, many miles north of here, where it’s actually water and not some sort of gelatinous substance with dead bodies and car parts.

Before that sign was up, people would let their kids wade in the River, so apparently it is necessary.

don’t drink Hudson River water, either (even though they say that is the only way Hoboken politics makes sense)

fishing in the river makes me a little queasy… but CRABBING, now that is too scary..

This sign confuses me. I see No Bathing and someone swimming. One would think there would be a picture of a stick figure sitting in tub with a duck and a back brush? Sort of like a NO DOGS sign with an image of a Turtle.

What I can’t believe is that people actually fish out of the Hudson. That’s as good as staying home and fishing from your toilet bowl!
