What is luxury in Hoboken?
You ever wonder if the word “luxury” is abused in the Real Estate industry to the point where it should be ignored? I mean a stainless steel appliance no longer applies as “luxury” anymore – as pretty much 95% of all appliances sold at big box stores are of that variety. Heck to the rest of the world, running water, electricity and heat are MAJOR luxuries! But I digress…
One Hoboken resident who lives near 6th Street and Jackson Streets and paying close to $50,000 a year for rent – shares what she feels are some troubling circumstances that regularly happen in her neighborhood – including some recent gunshots!
Hoboken Resident: Hopeless and living in luxury on Jackson Street
“Does anyone know about the gunshots at Jackson and 6th this past Sunday at 4AM?
Lots of people running from projects past the Juliana towards the NJ Light Rail tracks. More shots were heard, a total of about four. After the fracas, the police were sweeping the area around The Juliana looking for a weapon.
No one ever reports on what is going on back here but there is constant yelling, fighting and false alarms every night into the early morning hours. We are paying very high rents, $4,000 a month!
Hopeless and living in luxury on 6th and Jackson”
How you would rectify this situation if you were in a “position of power” in Hoboken? (i.e., police, city hall?)
