St. Patricks Parade 2011 Preview

2/8/2011:

Annual green day of Hoboken mayhem coming soon!

Seeing that the Hoboken St. Patrick’s Parade is coming up next month (Saturday, March 5th) – I thought it’d be nice to bump one of my favorite video montages I put together a couple years back.

This was from “A week in the life” series I did – where I gave a reader a camera for a week – and compiled whatever photos they took into a video presentation. Hoboken411 reader Mooshu had the camera and captured what a typical St. Patty’s Parade is like in Hoboken (sans the arrests, passed out drunks, fights, and vomit).

Enjoy!

Remember the Zimmer campaign promises?

Quite a few residents have emailed Hoboken411 – reminding me of the many unfulfilled campaign promises that Dawn Zimmer made during her run for the Mayor’s office back in 2009.

Besides the most notable one (having a “detailed plan to cut property taxes 25% in the first year alone…”) – Zimmer also had a 5 step action plan for how she’d handle the annual St. Patrick’s Parade here in Hoboken. None of her promises came to fruition.

If she decides to run for re-election in 2013 – how can you even believe a word that comes out of her mouth?

Change that works? What change?

I wish someone could explain this to me. City Ordinance 145-18 (Disorderly House)-

What is a disorderly house? deemed to be unreasonably reckless, disorderly and unsafe?? Such a vague description.

They got 533 calls but that is because 10 people in a house can be noisy and some neighbors who dont celebrate the day call the cops. But if the cops come and it 10-20 people laughing, drinking having a good time is that disorderly is that unsafe for fire reasons????.

Who decides what disorderly is?? With the town eager for cash because Dawn would rather see fines bring in money than actually make any kind of budget cut this vague description is unsettling. Especially with 2000 dollar fine attached to it.

Why is fighting or creating a physically dangerous condition only a $500 fine when the others are all $2000? It seems to me that beating the crap out of someone should have the same fine as an open container, or more. Not that it matters much to me–I’m out of here every year now when this day comes along.

I had the same conversation about this with someone… It’s ridiculous how more egregious offenses have less repercussions in Hoboken.

I was in Hoboken Municipal court to fight a parking ticket once, and I witnessed defendant after defendant receive $1,000 fines for having an open container while standing/walking.

Meanwhile, the same judge, right after giving someone a $1,000 fine for drinking a beer out of dixie cup on their own stoop gave a $400 fine to someone who was drunk driving and fled the scene of an accident.
