The Joys of Hoboken Parking
The Joys of Hoboken Parking (not)
Everyone on planet Earth knows what a debacle parking is in Hoboken. There are solutions to fix what is wrong and I promise you it’s not bike lanes. People in this town somehow think we’re the Netherlands. We’re not!
Anyway – Let’s dabble into just a few recent examples of Hoboken parking retardation.
Robots are supposed to make life easier, no?
Can you read that sign? I didn’t think so. Now try it again when it’s dark out. Good luck with that! You’ll return to your car after dinner with a boot on it.
Only if they had a brain…
We need the grammar police to ticket the parking police – or at least someone needs to look up “only” in the dictionary. When the next sentence explains the 4-hour criteria that makes it okay for non-permit holders to park there, it’s clearly not “Permit Parking Only.” Who wrote this?
Parking tickets now come in Pez dispensers
Should a car get multiple tickets the same day for the same location? We found these two tickets on this SUV for the same day: one printed in the 9am hour, the other in the 2pm hour. Is this fair? If so, why not print a new ticket every 30 seconds until the driver appears?
Make them go away please (red curbs)
First, how much red curb paint can chip off before parking there ought to become legal? Second, why were the curbs ever painted red in the first place on the one-way streets that no one ever turns into and there are no fire hydrants? Did anyone think about this?
Plenty of “pay here” signs.. but not enough…
The city spares no expense when it comes to properly designating places to PAY them money. How about a sign that would actually be useful like: “No Bicycles on Sidewalks?”
Conceived and launched in 2006, the original Hoboken Photo of the Day category contains thousands of pictures and includes many other subsections, including Drunk Bread Crumbs, HDR Photography, Hoboken Digital Art, and more.
We feel that by photo-documenting the city of Hoboken season after season, “a picture is worth 1000 words,” and can tell a myriad of stories encompassing the good, bad and the ugly contained within the mile-square. Our constantly-evolving way of maintaining a historical archive of memories and sights.
