Hoboken Capsules for June 22, 2011
Condensed nuggets about Hoboken to get your day started: Gay Pride, Busted 9/11 Memorial, Fashion Show, and city updates.
Hoboken Business Center Celebrates Gay Pride
The Hoboken Business Center (50 Harrison St.) will hold a Gay Pride celebration tonight at 7pm. Taking place at the celebration will be the first gay flag to be raised on a public building in Hoboken.
Attending the celebration will be Hudson County Director of Health and Human Services, Carol Ann Wilson, Directors of Hudson Pride Connections and Faith Services and others. The Business Center will also illuminate its tower at the corners of Harrison Street and Observer Highway in rainbow colors at the event for a ceremonial lighting in commemoration of the milestone flag raising and national gay rights.
How long will it take to fix the 9/11 Teardrop?
Hoboken Police are conducting an investigation at the moment.
Regardless of how it happened, or who is to blame – the city’s first priority should be to get this repaired right away.
vitaminwater fashion show at W Hotel tonight
If you enjoy things like fashion shows – then head over to the W Hotel in Hoboken tonight from 6pm to 9pm.

You can find out more – or even submit your own portfolio on vitaminwater’s Facebook page.
Other Hoboken Tidbits
- Anything related to Pier C Park (other than suicide jumpers) is really “non-news.” But they installed some metal gates on the park recently. Many residents wonder why this park is closed at night – when parks really should be open 24 hours (like Pier A Park.)
- Do you know Santos Aguirre Rodriguez? The Hudson River Jumper who died last week only had identification from Honduras. NJ Transit Police are looking for any friends or relatives that can positively ID him. He was in his 30′s, 5’3″, and about 165lbs. Call (800)242-0236 if you have any info and mention case 11-5583.
