New Hoboken residents welcome kit
Hoboken411 is in the process of creating a “Welcome to Hoboken” kit that offers new residents a way to quickly get acclimated with some important tips, tricks and other useful links, tidbits and helpful information. It would be a good “starting point” for newbies rather than surfing all over the web. They can later read more about each and every business, bar or restaurant.
Below is a rough outline of what I’d like to know if I moved here, coming from other Hobokenites both young and old. What can you add? And try to be honestly helpful. I would think any sensible person would quickly discover the bad things out on their own anyway!
After a week or two, I’ll finalize the list and create a single link so that our new neighbors can rapidly become beaten-down and “Hobokenized” with the help of Hoboken411 and it’s readers!
New Resident Welcome Kit:
For starters, I guess I’d like to know the basics:
- Police, fire, city hall, parking permits, street cleaning regulations, parking garages, violations office, construction permits, voting locations, Post offices, PATH, Bus and Ferry schedules, major highways, tunnels, cable & power company and more.
Then a few more unique-to-Hoboken snippits, like:
- Bar hours, arts festivals, St. Patty’s, parks, internal links to the bars, restaurants, shops, doctors, vets, bakeries, gyms, nail salons, dry cleaners, plumbers, electricians, and other often-frequented city businesses.
Nearby essentials that are out of town, such as:
- Where to buy furniture, good outlet shopping (like Secaucus, Elizabeth, etc), Motor Vehicle offices, County Courts, and more.
This is just a basic outline at the moment, but what other information would you like to have easy access to if you just moved here?
