Orderly Exodus from Hoboken

Macy’s Fireworks in Hoboken: “Orderly Exodus”

In case you didn’t stay behind last week to watch the Macy’s Fireworks in Hoboken – this is what a typical intersection looked like after the show was over. People calmly walking back to their cars, no disorderly riots, etc. In fact this particular spot only had one cop working. He really didn’t even have to be there, because the overwhelming majority of people have no desire to be disruptive or act in nefarious ways (cops or not).

It was reported by many casual observers that the town had a semi-police state. Even chasing seniors away from the waterfront walkway after the fireworks (which is supposed to be public).

I can understand a bit of “traffic control” to help facilitate an orderly exodus from Hoboken, but do you think that “lock down” was even necessary?

Unafraid: Chemtrail bumper stickers in Hoboken

Since we brought up the issues of Chemtrails this week on Hoboken411 – I figured I’d share this photo.

This car is often seen on the streets of Hoboken, and the owner is unafraid to express his opinions about chemtrails and geo-engineering. The bumper stickers read (in order left to right, top to bottom):

  • “Wild Weather”
  • “Artificial Clouds”
  • globalskywatch.com
  • “Chemtrails Kill”
  • “Wake Up, Look Up, Stop Geo-engineering”
  • “Fear it, End it, U.N. Agenda 21, agenda21today.com

Take a look at those websites they suggested for more information.

(Oh, if anyone thinks this is my car – nope, I would never put a sticker of ANY kind on any car in my family. Not even a dealer sticker.)

Two Words: Drunk Pigs!

Unhealthy drunks more likely to litter in Hoboken

I wouldn’t even need a scientific study to prove the subheading above – it’s evident all around Hoboken each weekend! Whether it’s pizza, beer bottles, or an entire pig-fest of refuse – you cannot go a week without seeing scenes like the one below.

Other captions considered for today’s combo-category Hoboken photo of the day: “Alcoholic & Arteries,” “Diabetic Judgment” and “Obama Care.”

Rusty Hoboken buildings?

How reliable are rusty construction materials?

If you walk uptown, you’ll see a Toll Brothers staging area for the latest phase of the Maxwell Place construction. They stored materials like reinforcing bars (rebar) for quite a long time, and in all sorts of weather conditions (the feral cats loved ‘em though..)

Was wondering – doesn’t rust cause weakness in steel? Perhaps this is just another part of the planned obsolescence conspiracy so they can demolish and build again a few decades from now?

Two Words: “Mount Consumption”

Hoboken provides proof we’re an overly consumer-driven society

Spotted this heaping mound of refuse near Maxwell Place the other day… Massive! And I spoke with a worker on scene, who said that this was just a day or two worth of garbage produced by just ONE of the two properties there. Holy moly!

No matter what angle I tried shooting this shot from, it did not accurately portray how much rubbish people produce these days.

Do you think our society is overly consumer-driven?

Naked Viaduct

Hoboken Viaduct exposed during restoration

Had this leftover shot from the Uptown Hoboken Development Update post the other day, as I found myself walking under the 14th Street Viaduct which is getting rehabbed.

Seeing the viaduct from this angle, and how exposed the framework was underneath – made me a bit uneasy. Not sure I’d feel to safe driving on it!
