Summer Nightlife: Will it slow down?

[Reminiscing Hoboken411’s Five Year Anniversary…]

Hoboken doesn’t quite down in the summer anymore

Below is a video I made back in 2007 after Labor Day… to show how action “picked up” once the shore-house times were done. A decade ago, Hoboken used to turn into a ghost town on the weekends. But with Hoboken’s population increasing by 30% since 2000, the days of quiet weekends and conversations in bars without screaming seem like distant memories.

Do you think Hoboken will have a busy summer this year, or will the overall economy affect everyone across the board, shore house or not?

9/11/2007:
Now that the summer beach season is unofficially over, it seems as if Hoboken is a madhouse again on the weekends.

While I’m convinced that our city is bursting at the seams because of population growth, it could always just be that it’s the best place in New Jersey for singles to hang out!

I had enough video outtakes and cut scenes left over from this past weekend to make a pretty fun video. Scenes around the hot spots in town, along with a couple brief interviews. I feel the song I laid down is perfectly fitting for this segment.

Enjoy!

I think you meant quiet down not quite…

As for summer weekends I don’t know since I’m never in Hoboken on summer weekends 🙂

I don’t know.. As someone who’s in Hoboken on most summer weekends, I have to say there’s still a noticeable difference in the amount of foot traffic and patrons at bars & restaurants. It’s always a shock that first weekend after Labor day when everyone’s back in town.

here’s another key point: what is CNN’s criteria for “single.” I have this suspicion it’s “anyone who is not married.” in large measure, the only practical way to measure such a thing would be, how many people have a marriage license. well, as we know, that is an incredibly useless way to measure the % of single people. what about people who are engaged; do you think they’re heating the “scene” anytime soon? what about people who are not engaged but are otherwise attached…i mean there are dozens of Sex and the City wannabees who are dating two, three guys at a time – they hardly qualify as “single”.
huge point here that basically renders the data useless it seems to me.
