Rare: Old School Neighborhood Pride in Hoboken
Spotting something rare this fall. A true example of neighborhood pride. It’s obvious because the man was of an older generation, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they were “Born and Raised” here in Hoboken. This was a relative newcomer to Hoboken – the kind folks over at R. William Maggs Designs on 6th Street.
Sweeping the leaves off the sidewalk, ensuring that their business was clean and welcoming.
This is rare these days because we now live in a society where everyone expects someone else to take care of things. Like not even an ounce of thought goes into mundane tasks like this anymore.
Then again, it could also be because we’re also an overly litigious group. Perhaps someone might sue you if you sweep leaves on their car. Who knows.
Nevertheless it’s refreshing that individual neighborhood pride still exists without the arm-twisting of charity or other socialistic means.
