Funny Hoboken Costume

11/1/2007:

A reader had initially sent me a cameraphone pic of this costume from yesterday’s Ragamuffin Parade. And wouldn’t you know it, today that person submitted this photo for the Halloween Photo Contest. (entry deadline is tomorrow).

While I’m not going to be the judge of the “best pictures” (you guys will vote on it), this certainly is a very creative Hoboken-based costume! Maybe next year, they can gather a group and do a whole parking, ticketing, towing “scene”…

Maybe the Hoboken Historical Museum should do an exhibit on the fires and how many people died in them.[/quote]

The fires were part of the 2nd part of the 150th Anniversary exhibit. Many of the newspaper articles are easily accessed if you go in and ask.

This is a very ugly part of Hoboken history. And the crimes remain unresolved.

I agree with you and that is why we need to elect people to local office who will be watching out for the people and not be seduced by residential developer money. I believe it is still called “public service”.

And it should be noted that the majority of the victims of the fires were Hispanic and South Asian (Indian). That is why it really gets me when they continue to support the very people who stood by while they sufferred, because it is the evil they know.[/quote]

Something to remember those who died, those who were particularly traumatized, their families, the firemen and the other emergency service personnel; and thought provoking for the rest of us.

And, there is not even so much as a historical marker at any of these sites.

Maybe the Hoboken Historical Museum should do an exhibit on the fires and how many people died in them.

These fires were widely believed to be arson.[/quote]

Thanks Nick, for the correction. It seemed endless, the firemen carring the body bags down the ladder.
There was another on 14th st. around that time, too. The victims were trapped on the roof without a fire escape.
Bad times.
