Parking Spot Snow Squatters!
Did anyone get their garage spots snatched up during the Hoboken blizzard?
Snow Squatter nicks parking spot in Hoboken
“So here’s a first in over a decade of renting a garage spot in Hoboken (at the Grand Adams) – I arrived home from being trapped in South Jersey during Snowmaggedon to find someone parked in our spot! Is this some sort of snow storm squatters rights thing that has happened to other people in Hoboken? Were garages letting people with outdoor/uncovered spots squat in vacant spots? And what do you do if it happens on a weekend?
All I’ve been able to find out is that since it’s a private garage the cops can’t do anything, but were helpful and said all I need is to show Hoboken Towing a copy of the lease and they can tow. But on a weekend, we’re basically on hold (our lease is safe in our office. Rethinking that one!). I’m hoping I’ll wake up and little CT license plate #(redacted) will no longer be there, and/or the management company will be back in the office to help out (I’m sure they’ll help us), but I couldn’t help but send along the photo to Hoboken 411. To me, this is far more ballsy than the people who don’t pick up their dog poop!”
Update: Laura said that the car remained – even 36 hours later!
