Amazing Hoboken Aquatic Rescue Fleet

Two Hoboken row boats for Hurricane Irene

Did you know that Hoboken is over 33 million square feet in size, with over 37 linear miles of roadways?

Also – this weekend, pretty much everyone and their dog is expecting widespread flooding like we’ve never seen before as a result of Hurricane Irene.

It seems that Hoboken “prepared” for this potential flooding catastrophe by acquiring two dinky row boats (as seen at the Municipal Garage site downtown). I’m not sure if they’re going to be used for actual emergency purposes, or to cart only privileged city officials to safety.

All together now: “Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream… Merrily, merrily, merrily….”

In true Hoboken fashion, it shall be a bar crawl. Start at the new beer garden. Down 14th to Hudson Tavern. Hawaii Five-O it down Sinatra to the Quays, etc. Getting past the PATH station is the white-water section. Over to Mulligans, then to DC’s and back to the beer garden, so that there’s enough seating for all of us to have a big frosty mug o’ cheer.[quote comment=”210143″]Let the races begin.

A long time ago there were storms and floods but the areas affected weren’t as developed as they are now. The entire area under the viaduct was all factories or truck parking lots. So no one gave a shit about floods. The area from grand st south to the projects and 6 th st. to obs. hgy was were the “swamp gineys” lived and they were called this because of the floods. All of this flooding is nothing new.
my yard is available it is wet but not flooded, my main concern is loss of power. As I said before I have pb&j, bread and beer I’m all set. If I lose power I’ll just have to drink warm beer.[quote comment=”210104″]escape we grew up with many such storms ..First time I ever saw such leadership like this.Two snowstorms and a director got fired,one tremor…Now this upcoming storm..Now at this time how many people are depending on ems and fd and pd in lue of high taxes?

I’m not far from sandy hook, I lived on 7th & park and we never had floods. One or two houses who had basements would get flooded once in a great while but for the most part the floods were downtown.

This is exactly my issue with Zimmer and her efforts. It’s all well and good to ask people to leave town so she’s not responsible for their problems. But, where are the crews out now cleaning the sewer grates, and crews putting down sandbags in vulnerable areas, etc… ?

Bullbreed – sandbags aren’t gonna matter. If this place floods (and it will), it’s going to be pervasive. The only unflooded spot will be high ground.[quote comment=”210081″]This is exactly my issue with Zimmer and her efforts.
