Truth in shadows?

Light trickery in Hoboken

Noticed the way the sun was hitting 7 Stars Pizzeria the other day, and like the affect it had on the logo.

However, it got me thinking – “7 Stars” all of a sudden became “0 Stars.” See what happens when you shine the light on things?

Flashback to the early 1980’s

And just for a little historical reference – Hoboken411 reader Roger found this vintage photo of 4th & Garden from back in the early 80’s when this location was the “Garden Luncheonette.”

That strange thing you see in front of the eatery was something called “hanging out” and “socializing with others in person.”

That is where “status updates” and “text chats” evolved from, in case you can’t quite connect the dots.
