Flashback Hoboken: 96 months ago
Memories from 96 months ago – Flashback Hoboken
St. Paddy’s used to be festive
The annual St. Patrick’s Parade in Hoboken used to be a vibrant citywide event. Take a look at how packed the streets were. Wall to wall people who are happy and festive!
W Hotel – A big deal
The now sorta well-known W Hotel along the waterfront was barely under construction. It had gone through some rough patches with the “Chandelier Room” club attracting low-lives from Staten Island to snort coke and fight over worthless pigs. It’s calmed down a lot since, and seems to be “in tune” with the rest of the community now.
Helmers after the fire
Hoboken’s only German restaurant Helmers’ hadn’t yet opened after the fire pretty much devastated the whole building. Now, 8 years later – Helmers’ is gone anyway.
