Finally – action taken at Stevens Dog Run in Hoboken
Amidst the Hoboken411 article, along with several residents applying pressure – common sense was finally re-instituted over at the Stevens Dog Park. The fountain was “made proper,” as the hose that was long requested gotten taken care of.
And it appears that Director Pellegrini, who’s crippled working within the stringent bureaucracy at city hall – found the solution. Use a decent, responsive contractor instead the inept “approved” city contractors that are in bed with the administration. Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands to get things done around these parts.
If dogs could send thank you notes – Leo’s inbox would be filled with them!

The amazing once-a-month “enlightenment without electricity” 2014 Hoboken Readers Circle Book Group “Fall Edition” meets again this Thursday! Three more monthly sessions until winter break.
Hoboken Readers Circle Book Group
The Hoboken Readers Circle book group meets the 3rd Thursday of the month at 7:00pm in the comfortable and spacious Muller Room of All Saints, 701 Washington Street, in Hoboken.
All book lovers are welcome, and encouraged to even bring a friend! Free coffee and cake is served. For more info write email@example.com.
A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
On Thursday, September 18th, the group will meet and discuss the book A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole.
Here’s a synopsis: “A Confederacy of Dunces is an American comic masterpiece. John Kennedy Toole’s hero, one Ignatius J. Reilly, is “huge, obese, fractious, fastidious, a latter-day Gargantua, a Don Quixote of the French Quarter. His story bursts with wholly original characters, denizens of New Orleans’ lower depths, incredibly true-to-life dialogue, and the zaniest series of high and low comic adventures”
The book won a Pulitzer Prize in case you’re wondering, but it’s apparently one of those “love it or loathe it” types of books.

Hoboken photo remains of the week: September 13, 2014
In the Hoboken Photo Leftovers gallery below:
- Photo 1: No idea where to watch the Mayweather fight tonight? Village Pourhouse downtown is a great option.
- Photo 2: Bludgeoned! PSE&G continues ripping our already decimated streets to shreds with “gas line” work.
- Photo 3: 1st & Adams gets a minor upgrade with a residential building taking shape. Looks like shoddy construction to us.
- Photo 4: Craving fresh seafood? You’ll have to wait a little longer. Stingray Lounge uptown still a couple weeks out.
- Photo 5: El-cheapo ladies clothing store “People” has been playing with people with their “going out of business” sale for a while. At least the sign is down now.
- Photo 6: 1415 Park Place continues it’s evolution into a living, breathing building. For now at least, it kind of “matches” the BP gas station…
Don’t let a little rain spoil your plans! Get out there and explore!

Weakling punks FAIL at Statue Theft in Hoboken
Here we go again with another nefarious video capture in front of Muller Insurance at 930 Washington Street this summer.
“It shows 4 frat boys trying to steal a decorative garden statue. Luckily we thought to cement it and bury it so they try – but honestly can’t remove it. It’s funny but ridiculous – no one wants us to have a nice main street I guess?”
The good thing is that whomever these “frat boys” were, they certainly were not MEAT HEADS on some football team. Because then, the statue probably would have been damaged. Pencil-neck nerds who get sweaty using anything other than a touch-screen computer are no match for heavy landscaping. They probably dropped their pints of piss-water beer several times throughout the night as well.

2005 Honda Accord for sale – low miles!
We don’t normally post cars for sale on Hoboken411, but felt this might be of interest to value-seeking buyers.
Local resident Laura (973-573-1315) has what’s close to a 10-year old Honda Accord – but with ridiculously LOW mileage (47k) for sale for just $8,500.
Honda Accord Details:
2005 – Silver – 47,000 Miles
Dark Grey Leather Interior
Heated Power Seats / Sunroof
Recent Work: New Tires, New Battery, New Brakes
Blue book Value: $10,000
Honda vehicles may not be the absolute safest on the road – but from what we understand overall – they are without a doubt one of the most reliable vehicles you can buy (hence why they are one of the top selling brands). Honda is known for superior engines that last WAY beyond what other manufacturers produce. I wish I liked Honda myself – too bad they don’t make a massive sedan… I’d be first in line!
Again – give Laura a call at: 973-573-1315
