Hoboken Liquor License Lunacy

2/11/2008:

From a Hoboken411 reader:

“One of my friends that has a local business today received an anonymous letter today in the mail concerning liquor licenses. The entire letter is anonymous, but raises certain questions about Hoboken and the “who do you know” people. Here is the letter below. I retyped since i don’t have a scanner, but it spoke very loudly how some conduct business in this town. Thought you would be interested to read it since your website seems to be most read in this town. Take a read:”

To all Liquor License Owners,

Last week, the Hoboken City Council announced it would consider issuing a liquor license to Danny Tattoli to be placed at 38 Newark Street. That is the old Clam Broth House. This would violate the law which states “you cannot have a license within 500 feet of an establishment with an existing liquor license”. This would set a terrible precedent. Would this enable other people to move or “acquire” a liquor license and move it to the location of their choice? Would his enable anyone to move next store to your establishment with their “new” license? If my license is in the northwest corner of the city and i want to move it to the heart of Washington Street will I now be able to do it? This will be a disastrous precedent. The council has stated they would consider this at a subcommittee on a meeting on February 14th, 2008. Please contact your council member in your ward to voice your displeasure or better yet you might want to contact a lawyer if this goes through. Try to attend and voice your opposition.

Ah, Hoboken, where you always have two stories … the “real” story and the REAL story! 🙄

Yeah, apparently the buckling occurred due to some un-permitted work that had been done in the basement, I believe…
Regardless, this surely could have been fixed… But I guess since Danny Tattoli had the inside track to buy the property, Al Arezzo must have fast-tracked this building to get demolished so his pal could get the zoning approval to build bigger, etc..

yeh, “serious” damage. If they can refurbish and reconstruct the train terminal, they could have fixed the minor buckling of one of the walls at the Clam Broth House. The buckling was the result of illegal construction in the building.
