Pending Disaster at HUMC {resolved}

Took long enough

The massive tank (oxygen or whatever) that was blocking the intersection at 3rd & Willow has been removed. Joy to the world (and to insurance companies everywhere).

How this hospital was able to obviously create a dangerous situation for so long is beyond me. I guess they have a key to the “back room” at city hall?

Visibility blockage at HUMC a disaster waiting to happen


Have you seen the trailer outside HUMC? Some kind of utility (or ebola) trailer is attached to Hoboken “University” Medical Center (still shake my head that they had the balls to use the word “university”) at 3rd & Willow. This is a absolute disaster in the making.

Who did this? I mean it completely blocks the visibility of fast-moving traffic coming southbound on Willow Ave. Just observing for a few minutes I saw some near-accidents.

Maybe HUMC is trying to drum up “business?”

A temporary stop sign would alleviate the safety hazard a little, but would also introduce traffic congestion issues up the road. Bad idea all around.
