Skyline blockage in Hoboken

Bummer – NYC Skyline blockage in full effect

Not too long ago, when driving into Hoboken from the SW side of town at night, you used to “get a glimpse” that our big-brother New York City was right beyond the edge of your view.

But now with that Pearson Education building down by Pier A Park filling in… it appears our own skyline has drowned out the big apple. Although you can still sort of see the lights, it was kind of exciting to “feel the vibe.”

Now you have to go down to the edge of the waterfront pretty much (which isn’t filled with such good vibes – not lately at least…)

But I have to say, the NYC Skyline isn’t as big a deal as it used to. Star-gazing (like we did last weekend) is much more fulfilling (which is next to impossible so close to the city). All about perspectives, I guess!
