Hoboken Week in Review: 11/14/2010
Enjoy it while it lasts!
What a fantastic weekend we’ve been having. Soak it up – because the winter is on it’s way! But before you enjoy the great outdoors – catch up on Hoboken happenings!
The most noteworthy posts for the week ending Sunday, November 14, 2010:
Politics and City Happenings
- Par for the course – Hoboken’s infrastructure is so banged up – Water main breaks are pretty much a given. One on 7th Street – and another on Washington Street. Hoboken411 has exclusive videos of both.
- Shrinking waterfront walkways – More sections of the (Hoboken run) walkways closed off. Reminder that Mayor Zimmer lied in print when she said she didn’t know. Shame.
- Path to nowhere – Great photo gallery of the nearly finished Stevens walkway along the water.
- But we have one new walkway – Despite the mess Hoboken’s waterfront is in – you can get distracted by the finally (partially) open Pier C Park.
- Doggie Debate – Dogs and their owners at the center of another Hoboken debate.
Crime and Incidents
- Blotter – Some noteworthy crimes and incidents from last week, including the angry biting ex-girlfriend!

Inspirational Quote of the Week:
“It is hard to know how many people do, but given that the people are so docile towards the rulers, nowadays, very few Americans show the passion for freedom that our forefathers had.”– James Bovard
