A reader found this picture of the pond that used to be in Columbus Park (courtesy of Hoboken Historical Museum).

Anyone ever get “caught” with their dogs off the leash?

Despite walking by this sign often, I never really read it. Luckily I did, because I was thinking of bringing a Snapple and changing the oil in my car there this weekend. Whew!

[quote comment=”32644″]I adore that Columbus statue–in addition to discovering the New World, he also clearly discovered steroids.

I do NOT adore owners with off-leash dogs. My dog is also somewhat dog-aggressive (however, she makes bizarre exceptions for puggles and Rhodesian ridgebacks), and like Max_Power, I do my level best to be a civil dog owner, steering her away from trouble. Off-leash dogs compound that trouble.[/quote]
I have to agree with you Caf. It’s just not possible in Hoboken anymore. There was a time…..but. It’s just to dangerous now. I have seen too many dogs run across the street and get hit by cars. I have a place in the country on a dead end road where I can let my dogs of leash, but as good as they are at staying around, one Hoboken squirrel and they will forget every command they have ever learned. R.I.P., Roxy.

the area behind the sun house in picture was at one time a giant fish pond stocked with what we called giant goldfish It was filled in in the late fifties. And nobody was allowed to walk on the grass never mind bring a gog in the park. The park was patroled by a hudson county cop who took no lip from anyone and if you dared you got a swift kick in tha ass.
