Hoboken Wednesday Morning Capsules

Hoboken Capsules for June 22, 2011

Condensed nuggets about Hoboken to get your day started: Gay Pride, Busted 9/11 Memorial, Fashion Show, and city updates.


Hoboken Business Center Celebrates Gay Pride

Did you know a “milestone” first gay flag will be raised in Hoboken tonight?

The Hoboken Business Center (50 Harrison St.) will hold a Gay Pride celebration tonight at 7pm. Taking place at the celebration will be the first gay flag to be raised on a public building in Hoboken.

Attending the celebration will be Hudson County Director of Health and Human Services, Carol Ann Wilson, Directors of Hudson Pride Connections and Faith Services and others. The Business Center will also illuminate its tower at the corners of Harrison Street and Observer Highway in rainbow colors at the event for a ceremonial lighting in commemoration of the milestone flag raising and national gay rights.

How long will it take to fix the 9/11 Teardrop?

As Hoboken411 first told you earlier this week – the already abused Hoboken 9/11 Teardrop Memorial at Pier A Park got vandalized and destroyed.

Hoboken Police are conducting an investigation at the moment.

Regardless of how it happened, or who is to blame – the city’s first priority should be to get this repaired right away.

How long do you think it will take?

vitaminwater fashion show at W Hotel tonight

If you enjoy things like fashion shows – then head over to the W Hotel in Hoboken tonight from 6pm to 9pm.

“vitaminwater is hosting local fashion shows featuring vitaminwater-inspired looks by local designers as a part of their color collection program and contest. 5 New Jersey designers will create 5-8 looks to send down the runway, one of the looks being a t-shirt inspired by the vitaminwater color palette.”

Local salon Rebellations (44 Hudson Pl.) will be on scene representing Hoboken – they’re in charge of styling all the models hair tonight.

You can find out more – or even submit your own portfolio on vitaminwater’s Facebook page.

Other Hoboken Tidbits

  • Anything related to Pier C Park (other than suicide jumpers) is really “non-news.” But they installed some metal gates on the park recently. Many residents wonder why this park is closed at night – when parks really should be open 24 hours (like Pier A Park.)
  • Do you know Santos Aguirre Rodriguez? The Hudson River Jumper who died last week only had identification from Honduras. NJ Transit Police are looking for any friends or relatives that can positively ID him. He was in his 30’s, 5’3″, and about 165lbs. Call (800)242-0236 if you have any info and mention case 11-5583.

Did you forget? The City Council zeroed the budget, there’s no money to fix the 9/11 teardrop. To do that they’d have to raise taxes.

Uhhh… no. There’s plenty of fat in Zimmer’s 101 million dollar budget. Zimmer is spending 10s of thousands to send her political cronies to school to learn the jobs she hired them for. Cut some of that fat and you can fix the teardrop. She’s wasting 10s of thousands on a consultant to be the temporary Director of Environmental Services after firing Maier. It’s nothing but a waste of money. Arch Liston’s buddy gets a no-bid, double-dipping contract for two months to do nothing but take a paycheck. People like you went apes–t when Dave Roberts’ budget jumped to over 70 million, but Zimmer spends 101 million and it’s cool? [quote comment=”208018″]Did you forget?

Hope her political cronies aren’t giving up good jobs and benefits they may have had for a little over a two year stint remaining with this crazed administration. You just have to know for a fact they will all be replaced again.[quote comment=”208040″]Uhhh… no. There’s plenty of fat in Zimmer’s 101 million dollar budget.

Nope. Most of them had no real job when they swore allegiance to Mayor Dimmer to get on the city payroll. Her assistant comptrollers, that Holtzman woman, the Bryan kid. Nothing but political hacks waiting to jump on the Zimmer payroll. Now they get educated on the public dime to learn how to do their jobs.[quote comment=”208044″]Hope her political cronies aren’t giving up good jobs and benefits they may have had for a little over a two year stint remaining with this crazed administration.
