Hoboken Baby Bounce
Baby Bounce – rattling cribs don’t look too fun in Hoboken
One Hoboken411 took a photo of what they believed was a rather disturbing situation. Along the waterfront walkway near Pier C Park, a group of “caregivers” were out with some cribs stuffed with infants.
The reader said “Saw a parade of “baby dumpsters” today. There were at least five of them, with four or five hysterically crying babies in them. Hilarious!”
They went on to add, that the rolling cribs (or “dumpsters” as they referred to them as), were being pushed along the bumpy brick pavers, which rattled the babies still-forming skulls, causing great discomfort and disturbing noises – hence the crying in unison.
I suppose this is the byproduct of our times. When you have to outsource the raising of your own child most of the time it has to make you wonder. Why? Is it worth all the hassle and complication? Does it take away from the true beauty of bringing a life into this world? Or put the infant at risk?
Conceived and launched in 2006, the original Hoboken Photo of the Day category contains thousands of pictures and includes many other subsections, including Drunk Bread Crumbs, HDR Photography, Hoboken Digital Art, and more.
We feel that by photo-documenting the city of Hoboken season after season, “a picture is worth 1000 words,” and can tell a myriad of stories encompassing the good, bad and the ugly contained within the mile-square. Our constantly-evolving way of maintaining a historical archive of memories and sights.
