HPU: The Hoboken Grinch
Hoboken welcomes new residents with parking boot & stiff fine
Hoboken411 reader Michael spotted this downright soul-less scene along Hudson Street between Christmas and the new year…
“The poor girl who owns the car in these pics just moved into the neighborhood and this is her welcome? As you can see she even put a festive note on her dash!
Her car is still parked and booted between 6th and 7th.”
Happy Holidays from the lovely city of Hoboken…
Hard to read “free parking” signs: That way on purpose?
Speaking of parking – you know how the city responded to the Hoboken411 post about how there was free parking in all surrounding cities, right? They supposedly had free parking until yesterday.
However, nothing stopped the meters from still accepting coins!
I personally stopped half a dozen different people in the last few days (who were going to put coins in anyway), because these dopey signs that were placed in the parking robots were very hard to read – faint (especially at night) as if they were done that way on purpose to get the mistaken revenue anyway.
