Hoboken Population skyrockets 30%!!

2/3/2011:

Hoboken becomes 5th most populous in Hudson County

I knew this was going to happen. The Census Results were released today – and Hoboken’s population grew a staggering 30% since 2000 – even surpassing Kearny and West New York.

Hoboken hasn’t had a population this big since 1950.

And you think we can lay off more cops?

PS – this number is most likely even higher. I know countless people who refused to partake in the census.

The population was higher during World War II (I believe). A lot of big families in tenements and the past makeup of Hoboken with its industry, piers, ship building and repair yards. As for being civil, it comes with honesty, trust, ethics, being considerate and to realize that civil people should help each other. LOL ! 😛

What is worse the overcrowding, lack of civility or stupidity of the politicians who are “correcting” the ills of the past administration? … a perfect storm.

I’m more surprised at Jersey City’s lack of growth than Hoboken’s strong growth. They can keep putting up condos in the NW redevelopment zone and maybe one day they’ll be something else up there other than shoprite.

Does this mean we’re getting 30% more parking spots?

I can see Fifty Thousand and “50K” being heavily overused buzzwords in the coming decade. Prepare yourselves.
