Weird Hoboken Buildings
Boy, I’m really catching up on some reader mail today!
This Hoboken411 reader has a few questions about a couple buildings in town:
What a weird place
“I’ve lived in Hoboken for three years now and have always wondered what that weird building is on Bloomfield Street between 1st and 2nd (closer to second on the east side). I’ve attached a picture. It looks like a really weird place, there are signs that say “absolutely no loitering, violators will be arrested” and “this area is under police surveillance”
Every time I walk by it I wonder what the hell goes on in there. It looks like some of the windows are boarded up but others have AC units in them. There’s also a large sign that says shaftway.”
He also wants to know if the self storage place on 8th and Adams used to be a school:
Weird NJ Party
Speaking of weird, for those that are fans of the magazine Weird N.J. might want to head over to Calaloo Cafe in Morristown on Saturday July 26th. The publishers of the eclectic magazine, Mark Sceurman and Mark Moran, are releasing a Weird New Jersey Special Issue and having the release party at 8pm.
Here’s the promo video for all you weirdos!
