    i read a story on the YMCA that said they provide rooms for 93 bums? is that right? that can’t be right…93? add to that the number of bums that the nun feeds and houses downtown and i bet we have at least 1 bum per city block in Hoboken. that’s a pretty high bum density. oh…and there is the shanty town too, for those free-spirit bums who prefer to go to the bathroom outdoors. wow, we got a lot of bums. oh, and how can the handcart “homeless” sign woman actually continue to be here in hoboken for almost 10yrs? isn’t there a limit to how long you can panhandle and live for free in any given town? she’s been standing at the ferry and path for at least 10yrs. hoboken MUST have panhandling laws on the books…how do we findout ?

    I don’t think they are bums, just working poor. Once the renovations are done I believe a few more will be moving in – I think they are building another floor on top of the building for use as a dorm.

    hey, if they’re working and need a hand to get over a period of difficulty, i’m happy the YMCA is there for them. i’m sure they run a strict facility as well.

    strand tramp spews his right-wing nonsense & loathing of poor people in almost every thread. Don’t mind him. He just watches a little too much Bill O’Reilly.

    no bumrider9, i just learned at 12 that i had to work if i wanted spending money. as well as do my chores and homework. i’m no better than anyone else. if i had to do it then, and go to work at 7am everyday now…then everyone else can also. the work ethic made this country strong from the beginning, but has eased in this era of “i’m a victim!” if you don’t want to work move to france.

    ok so I went on the YMCA web site and looked at the offer. $310 family membership for 3 months (not 4 as stated by 411 or at least that is what the web site says) = $1240 for the year plus 50% off the “joining fee” is $75 for a total of $1315. The regular charge to join is $888 ($222 for 3 months)for a family for the year plus $150 joining fee which = $1038. It does not say whether the cost of the trial is applied to the year or what the fee is to join – I guess the regular amount of $888? I can’t figure out what is so special about this summer special??? I realize that you only shell out $310 but still no big deal to me.
