Drunk sidewalk pizza party!

Hungry drunks in Hoboken could care less about littering

I’ve witnessed one particular scene in Hoboken quite often in my years living here. It’s the “hungry drunk walk home,” when someone’s bobbling a cumbersome pizza box trying to shovel slices into their gullet (all while two sheets to the wind.)

More often than not – the following scene ends up happening somewhere on their stumbling journey. Just another drunk Hoboken bread crumb!

    Most garbage you see on the streets after the weekends are the result of boozers.

    You should see the filth outside Basille’s Pizza on Washington and Newark. On ANY given night and weekend there are boxes, cups, and plates strewn all over the place. This owner should require someone in his employment to pick up the mess and put it in a receptacle AFTER he’s closed his business for the night. And if he says that’s what he’s doing, he’s a liar. That trash is there at 6am when we go to cvs and pick up bagels EVERY DAY. There is someone cleaning the inside of his store in the morning, while all this trash remains on the sidewalk and streets for the city workers to pick up for him.

    If you look around, it’s not just drunks throwing pizza boxes on the street. This whole city is a stinking pig sty! Everywhere you look there’s garbage–on every sidewalk, on every block. I’ve never seen a city with as much litter as this one. Just yesterday I was in Church Square Park and two teenage girls were sitting on a bench drinking sodas from cans. One of them finished and casually tossed the can on the walkway. There was a trash can not more than 10 feet away. Every day I see people throw food wrappers on the ground or crush cigarettes or throw stuff out of their car windows. It’s really gross. New York City is much cleaner than Hoboken! I routinely pick up other people’s garbage from the sidewalk in front of my house. This morning someone left a pile of dog crap there. It’s really unbelievable the way people are around here.

    The kids who use Church Square Park during the school days are also inconsiderate. I lived right on the park for 5 years and picked up trash, scolded kids, etc.
    Now a few blocks away, I am amazed how filthy 1st street is, from Washington to Willow. It is heavily trafficked, lots of bars, and unfortunately the homes on the street don’t use trash cans for collection- just household bags of trash on the sidewalk. Somehow, even though the city sanitation workers who start their day on Willow and Observer all cross over First but no one cleans. And shame on the Coldwell Banker workers who smoke and throw cartons worth of butts on the ground outside their office.

    more folks than not see these polluters except the good folks at hpd. And day after day we have to see garbage dudes with the pales on wheels from the 1920’s picking up these slobs garbage. I know hpd they got their hands full with other stuff but maybe go on some ticket blitz and start enforcing the rules. who knows with all the crime and lawlessness we see, ticket blitz can turn into some cash cow. :roll:

    Very odd indeed. I have heard quite a number of folks say they see what would look like otherwise respectable people- forty-fifity year old men- littering regularly. Their thoughts on this is that it is some sort of entitlement FU. I even heard one person voice it is because the tickets and taxes they feel a sense of relief by littering in the same town that puts the screws to them.
