Hoboken Paving and Milling

Christmas Miracle – Hoboken Paving

Two short blocks on Washington Street are getting paved today. Just in time for the Christmas Tree lighting. I’m sure they’ll make reference to the task that took them like 10 years of talking to make happen.

Well, well. Washington Street is getting a little bit of a smooth-over this week downtown. Took “mayor” Zimmer like Eleventeen years to do anything.

What’s the over/under on when it will become a kidney-jarring nightmare? We say 12 months.

At some given point – Hoboken will be such a constricted traffic nightmare (regardless of “smart” technology). Commerce will likely dwindle quite drastically. People will find other avenues to drown themselves in liquor and other over-priced tchotchkes.
