Sidewalk changes in Hoboken – an added cost for everyone
You ever wonder how these trends get going? And how they even get support from the citizens?
What ever happened to being aware of your surroundings, and taking precautions when you travel by foot?
Now the city is forcing all these modernized updates to the sidewalks. Besides handicapped ramps, they will most likely have those super-slippery rubber pads which are supposed to provide grip.
Can’t wait till someone at city hall slips and falls on one of those and busts their noggin. Me? I avoid them every single time. Anyone that loses their footing just once, should report it to city hall (and email Hoboken411 as well).
Instead of “Keeping Things Simple” (as every public entity should), they add layer upon layer of expensive crap at everyone else’s expense. Just another thing to maintain in perpetuity.
Keep allowing stuff like this to happen, and before you know it – someone will be monitoring what you eat and drink inside your own home.
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.
