Future Sign of the times – Graffiti & Parks

We already know that even high-profile waterfront parks in Hoboken attract graffiti taggers.

How about in the more sketchy areas of Hoboken?

Like the “Southwest Park” (one of “mayor” don Zimmer’s original campaign cornerstones). It went from a “slam dunk” state-of-the-art 6+ acre oasis, to now a (still not even close) sub-one-acre postage stamp of a garbage dump.

And if something has to be a poster-child of things to come – perhaps the fact that they’re already tagging graffiti on JUST THE SIGN for the dwindling park makes a good candidate.

Imagine once all the fancy what-have-yous get installed? Prime stomping ground for up and coming vandals who might very well live a stones-throw away.

Like a slow-motion trip down a flight of stairs this whole debacle is. Sigh.

About Hoboken411 Photo of the Day
The Hoboken Photo of the Day is a regularly updated section on Hoboken411.com.

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.
