You can’t make this shit up

Only in Hoboken – You can’t make this shit up!

WTF is this all about? From a distance, it looks like perhaps a motorcycle rider crashed, and landed in a tree. Nope. It’s something else, and there is no doubt you can’t make this shit up!

Hoboken homeless man napping in tree

NAPPING in tree in Hoboken

This afternoon, an “emotionally disturbed person” who happened to be homeless as well, found his way into a tree on the perimeter of the parking lot in the back of the Monroe Center for the Arts.

Yes, as you can see upon further inspection, he in fact found a way to get comfortable within the scrappy branches of a freshly budding tree! Included with his own body, were plastic bags containing his “personal effects.”

You know, I can bet that most homeless people (who aren’t begging for handouts) probably want to be away from the rest of the world as well (at times at least – less harassment). In this spot, he most certainly “had his own space.” Sort of the way people who live in “boxes” in tall structures called “high price condos” feel (with the exception of paper thin Sheetrock and exorbitant property taxes… and running water and flushable toilets…)

But Hoboken PD asked him to come down and move along (he wasn’t charged with a crime – until the control-freak city council decides to introduce an ordinance than bans “public tree relaxation.”)

Thankfully for him, he doesn’t “toss and turn” while sleeping, otherwise he’d be in a Obamacare-funded body-cast!

Have you seen Andrew Jarzyk?

Administration #FAIL in Hoboken – Cameras Broken

Sky high property taxes. Kidney-jarring potholes. Plowing blunders. Parking ticket robbery. Raises for cronies. Broken security cameras. If that was on a resume when searching for qualified candidates for Mayor of any city, it would go straight in the trash bin. Time for Zimmer to resign.

For the past four years… really?

Marine units search Hudson River for Andrew Jarzyk in Hoboken

4/1/2014 Update:

Since Hoboken411 posted the missing person alert for Andrew Jarzyk two days ago – the search has been escalated. With three marine units from NYPD and Jersey City searching the shores of Hoboken on the Hudson River. This was the scene earlier today outside Lackawanna Plaza.

He was apparently last seen jogging along the waterfront at 2am on Sunday morning. Puzzling why someone would go for a jog after drinking at the club. Hope he’s okay!

Andrew Jarzyk missing person from Hoboken, NJ

3/30/2014:

This came into our inbox late tonight. Apparently, a Hoboken resident named Andrew Jarzyk (27 years of age) has gone missing.

Jarzyk was supposedly “last seen” early this morning (1:00am) near the West Five Supper Club at 505 Madison Street. He evidently lived nearby. Records indicate that he’s employed by PNC Financials, and previously worked for Johnson & Johnson and JP Morgan Chase.

Any information leading to the whereabouts of Andrew Jarzyk can be relayed to the Hoboken, NJ Police Department Detective Bureau at (201)420-2211.

Was this foul play? Or “good times” taken a bit too far? Either way, we hope he’s okay.

Hit by Light Rail at 9th Street

Man hit by NJ Light Rail at 9th Street in Hoboken, NJ

People have been asking “why was the 9th Street Light Rail platform all bloody this morning in Hoboken?”

Hit by light rail at 9th Street in Hoboken NJ

Injured but seemed OK

Hoboken resident Joseph managed to capture the scene shortly after it happened.

It looks like some guy got hit by the light rail! I wonder how?

I mean it’s natural that “accidents happen” from time to time, and despite being at a train station with heavy moving objects, safety barriers and warning apparatus – makes it no safer than crossing the street in Hoboken.

One thing I’d be worried about is if those stupid thugs that play the “knockout game,” want to “expand their horizons” and start playing the “push in front of the train” game.

Then, I’d be sure the public wouldn’t mind if a vigilante like Charles Bronson from Death Wish made his rounds…

Hoboken not safe for cars!

Multiple Rim-Jobs in Hoboken, NJ

Forgot to mention this last week when we reported yet another “rim-job” theft of property from a parked vehicle. There was another car that had their rims nicked. The girl who was visiting Hoboken, most certainly now has a bad taste in her mouth.

Rims stolen in Hoboken NJ like shooting fish in a barrel“My car was parked a few spots away and all the rims and wheels were stolen as well. I returned the next day and called the police. Thank goodness my friend stayed with me while I waited for four hours while I called my insurance, AAA, and multiple local towing companies until I can find a company that was able to help. From your past articles it seems that this has been happening a lot recently but yet the city only cares to ticket a drunk partyer or place a boot on a car rather than stopping robberies and assaults? Are they scared of thug gangsters?

My night out in Hoboken to celebrate a friends achievements turned into a disaster and ended up costing a fortune!

Doesn’t everybody pay enough for taxes, rent, and parking garages already? Now on top of that we have to worry about returning to find that your car has stolen parts or even missing? Sucks having to pay all these extra expenses in order to get your car back to continue on with your daily routine.”

Like my caption on the photo suggests – that if you park in the NW area – thieves can steal your stuff as easy as “shooting fish in a barrel.” Be forewarned!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day {REAL}

Monday Bloody Monday? Happy St. Patrick’s Day {the REAL one}

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! (From Hoboken411 Alt-Mascot Chooey, who celebrates by showing some Irish pride).

Being that SPD is on a Monday – does that stop any of you from “celebrating?”

So whatever snow ends up accumulating might just make this day a bit more interesting, because the (few) people that decide to drink and drive will have a much more difficult time. Stay tuned later, we’ll see if anything is worth mentioning.

Enjoy the day and be safe!
