Death by Dog (new landscaping ruined in Hoboken)

The high school field along Jefferson Street was recently beautified with some new landscaping.

However, as resident Andreas points out – many area dog owners / walkers are quickly ruining it.

I walk my dog three times a day. Every time I do I watch people actually drag their dogs almost on top of the little bushes to encourage them to piss on them. They aren’t even in the ground for two months and they are already half dead. Are people so fucking stupid as to not know that a daily urine shower will kill these trees or do they just not give a fuck? I wrote to city hall several times to bring this to their attention. No reply. It’s really just beyond belief. In front of my building we had some landscaping done. 2800 dollars. By that measure what the city paid must have been 5 times as much. There is a camera right above them, too.”

I guess thousands of dollars down the drain. Death by dog.

Poor trees throughout the whole town! Trees haven’t been taken care of for over seven years, i.e., the period of this regime. To counter balance the admin’s negligence the dept of environmental services are spending our tax dollars cutting down mature trees instead of maintaining them. Let’s call it what it is Death by Incompetent City of Hoboken Admin.

UPDATE: Well done to the local assholes. Mission accomplished. All the trees are 100% dead now. The money and effort – 100% wasted. Feel good about yourself, do ya? Unfuckingbelievable.
