Hoboken Week in Review – 7/1/2007

hoboken-iphone-spoof.jpgThe year is officially 1/2 over. The pessimist says the best is over, and the optimist says the best is yet to come. I say thank you for summer and plentiful parking and quieter neighborhoods!

Drunks seem to be more prevalent, the 4th Ward never dies, another dog moves into Hoboken and dry cleaners are closing? What else happened in Hoboken this week?
