St. Ann’s Crash

St. Ann’s Crash {Facebook is not that important!}

Oh brother. A white Ford Explorer went careening into (and through) the cinder-block wall surrounding the parking lot over at St. Ann’s Church earlier this morning.

One can wonder how something like this happens on a low-speed residential intersection with a stop sign.

You can probably safely guess that it was a distracted driver checking out their timeline on the “smart phone.” People should realize not ONE single thing that happens on “Facebook” is important enough that it cannot wait until later, when you’re in a less potentially dangerous situation. Perhaps Darwin is lending a hand here?

Entitled Bicyclists

Hoboken brimming with Entitled Bicyclists!

Entitled bicyclists in Hoboken don’t just ride the wrong way, or nearly run over pedestrians on the sidewalk. Nope.

They also lock these fruity contraptions to the front of people’s homes – and prevent access to the gated areas, as one resident tried to reason with the moron by leaving a polite note:

2nd Notice: Please do not park your bike here. It prevents access to the front gated area. If you have a problem, call my cell and we can discuss. Thanks. (Adams St. Resident)”

“Please” call my cell? So we can “discuss?” Fuck that! If that was my house, that lock would have been sawed off – and the sign would have said “FREE BIKE. PLEASE TAKE.”

You can’t reason with these people. They’ll unknowingly step all over you. Grow a pair and take matters in your own hands.

Political Graffiti

Hoboken lucky to have political graffiti to ponder

A week or two ago, we mentioned some profane (and total gibberish) graffiti gracing the streets of Hoboken. But some “vandalism” appears to have a political message attached too. Can you sort it out?

Ban Mitt Romney! {whoever he is}

This brilliant display of tagging (amongst the other scribblings like “cupcakes”) says “Ban Romney Now.”

Why would this person want to “ban” someone who doesn’t currently hold any political office at all? And never in NJ or Hudson County? Ban a free man? Send him packing? Obviously a product of indoctrination. Either that, or maybe they just hate Mitt Romney because of the color of his skin? Which would mean they probably hate and want to ban over 80% of Hoboken as well. Your guess as good as mine!

Big, bad Fluoride

You can either believe fluoride is “safe,” based on what “four out of five dentists recommend,” or you can go a little deeper down the rabbit hole to learn the history of fluoride. Regardless of your position (or lack thereof), there are some people that wish to warn others about the apparent danger of fluoride, based on this sticker near Washington Street.

If you ever got the urge to deface property like these guys – what would you write?

Statue Theft FAIL in Hoboken

Weakling punks FAIL at Statue Theft in Hoboken

Here we go again with another nefarious video capture in front of Muller Insurance at 930 Washington Street this summer.

“It shows 4 frat boys trying to steal a decorative garden statue. Luckily we thought to cement it and bury it so they try – but honestly can’t remove it. It’s funny but ridiculous – no one wants us to have a nice main street I guess?”

The good thing is that whomever these “frat boys” were, they certainly were not MEAT HEADS on some football team. Because then, the statue probably would have been damaged. Pencil-neck nerds who get sweaty using anything other than a touch-screen computer are no match for heavy landscaping. They probably dropped their pints of piss-water beer several times throughout the night as well.

Victory!

Hoboken, we have a {homeless} problem

Homeless Serial Fecal oFFenders on the rise in Hoboken

Some might say “nah, we don’t have a homeless issue in Hoboken,” but based on the growing trend in various parts of town – they’d be proven wrong.

Homeless Fecal Matter in Hoboken NJ parks

Hoboken parks like a third world nation?

Up at Stevens Park – the homeless “population” seems to have been growing over the past several years. Not sure if it’s the economy in general, the fledgling city administration, or what.

And what’s worse is that now these homeless show no shame in depositing fecal matter almost anywhere. Including all the park benches and chairs inside and outside the dog park.

From nasty turds on lawn chairs, to disgusting beer diarrhea sprays on benches. Cops used to perform regular detail checks to remove people from the parks after the designated hours (11pm in the summer). Perhaps the dwindling police force is to blame, who knows.

You’ll know for sure that shit has (literally) hit the fan – if the city starts spending property taxpayer money on TOILET PAPER DISPENSERS for ordinary park benches.

Keep it classy Hoboken!

Signs Summer is really over in Hoboken: Keeping it classy!

Hoboken resident Jay was out for an early morning walk this past weekend, and concluded that “summer is officially over,” when the tell-tale signs of drunken buffoons becomes a more regular sighting.

Scenes like the vandalism in front of Pizza Republic can usually be spotted somewhere in town at least once a week. Innocent decorations like the flower boxes along the fence which are meant to add a little bit of nature to an otherwise “concrete jungle” had to be destroyed?

What kind of satisfaction did they get? Did they “stick it to the man?” No. Did they earn “street cred” for demonstrating destructive skills? Not to anyone with half a brain.

What they did show – was that they have a no respect, and probably don’t understand what it means to earn something and take care of it. Sad.
