Areas in Hoboken hazardous as garbage piles up after Sandy
If you’re out and about today in Hoboken – I highly recommend you take a walk by Park Avenue between 6th and 8th Streets. While not the only area where damage was done, this is an example of what appears to be a major issue looming in town.
When typical gut-renovations happen in Hoboken – contractors normally order a giant dumpster to safely offload the building materials. But in the case of Hurricane Sandy – entire blocks are being repaired and restored at the same time!
With no obvious rules or regulations in place to maintain order – it’s a “contractor free for all,” where sidewalks are almost impassable, we have a ripe breeding ground for vermin – and carting this refuse out without damaging the cars will be a next to impossible task.
Now that this problem is plainly obvious – when can we expect a plan from the city to minimize this threat to public safety?
Travel safely, Hoboken!
