Hoboken accessibility: Part of our problems
Easy access to Hoboken brings more undesirables
You see – the “beauty” of having mass-transit at our footsteps, right outside the best city in the world – brings both fantastic and horrible things to Hoboken.
While (most) businesses and residents would benefit from the increased traffic that makes Hoboken a “destination” (tourism, real estate values, etc.) – along with that also comes a proportionally higher number of drunken nincompoops as well.
Here’s a video of some drunk morons fighting on the NJ Transit Train after leaving Hoboken. Thankfully, this fight occurred outside of the Mile Square. However, this is one reason WHY a large number of “out of towners” can disrupt the quality of life for many residents during the annual Hoboken St. Patrick’s Parade.
Would you ask NJ Transit to NOT allow more trains that day? Or would that be equally detrimental for vehicular safety?
