Dust bowl Hoboken

“Progress” comes with drawbacks: Dusty conditions!

Was walking through Church Square Park the other day – and boy, the road work taking place all over the city certainly comes with bag of unpleasantness. Besides the impact on parking and traffic – the work also affects ordinary pedestrians and park dwellers.

The dust they were kicking up was unavoidable – and everyone in the vicinity got either a mouthful of dust – or it ended up irritating your eyes. I can only wonder how toxic that dust was. Certainly wasn’t “certified organic.”

Can’t the wet the dirt down to avoid these conditions?
