Parking so hard in Hoboken!

Desperate Measures: Saving Parking Spots for friends
Updating this post from three and a half years ago! Seems that parking is still as bad as it ever was – since idiots are STILL “saving spots” for their friends. Hoboken411 reader Nick details an event that took place this week:
“I have commonly seen people stand in a spot to save it for a friend… I could never understand how people have the nerve to do it.. well I came across it tonight.. Lady in front of the W Hotel would not move to let me park in the spot.. She just gave me a blank stare.. wouldn’t say a word, regardless of her standing directly in front of my car.. Got out and still no response, completely ignored me..
I took a pic of the car for the hell of it.. I’m curious if others had the similar experiences, and what they ended up doing.
Still agitated, and wish I could do something about it.”
What would you do? Try and park anyway? Or just leave it alone with the fear your car would get keyed or something?
Friends wait in heat for parking spot for buddy
Oh boy. We’ve all heard about this “saving a parking spot” bullshit that happens from time to time.
I know it sucks, you have a better chance of winning a council election than getting a space in Hoboken. I guess that’s why they’re willing to get run over to save a space for their friend “Gus”. My friends barely give me the correct answer when I ask “what time is it?”, let alone wait 20 minutes in the stifling heat. I guess he was bringing the beer.

“Hey, while I was driving around for half an hour one night, the owner of this little gem had his buddies block a parking spot, refusing to give it up for the 20 minutes or so they stood in the spot. Please allow everyone to know if they see this car, they need not help the gentleman who is driving, as he has plenty of help from his friends.”
