Sunday Flooding and Fire Videos

Here we have a dozen videos filmed by both Hoboken411 and our new “Roving Reporter” gathering the recent footage of flooding as well as the giant fire that took place in the area around 2nd and Grand/Clinton street.

Watch them all in succession, or check video #7 out to see the massive flames. Last videos at the end display the deep flooding that Hoboken encounters during most typical rain storms.

Sorry for the late publication, had some personal issues today. Appreciate your understanding.

Starts with video #1 from the new reporter, and covers many other aspects of the day.

Who cares, who do you really know on this website. And, I am think most people don’t go thru their day thinking “oh no, how about that missy that posts on hoboken411”. I think you should get over yourself!

2. Missy – that you’re eventually forced to move out of your parents’ basement here in Hoboken and to settle in another town…and upon arrival you’re greeted with the Hoboken ‘calling card’ of “I’ve-lived-here-longer-than-you-so-you-don’t-matter”.

“Some people went through a really, really bad time in the past 48hrs and to treat that with any degree of levity is beyond reproach. You should both be ashamed of yourself, but then again…you both clearly lack the capacity to appreciate the gravity of the situation.”

for all those affected by the flood and fire i am truly sorry. i happen to live in this neighborhood and my brother is a hoboken firefighter, therefore i never would have made these comments. and all i care about is the quality of life in this town i want to grow old here, but alot of people making these comments and/or making the “rules” for hoboken, consider this town a transitional period.

They finally drained my basement. But of course it wreaks down there and in the hallway and the dryer no longer works. I think I am done with Hoboken once my lease is up.

I agree, Cathy Cardillo is an excellent attorney and she only represents tenants – but man is she an unpleasant person to deal with. She can even be nasty with her own clients. But I don’t know a landlord in town that isn’t afraid for her!
