Lazy folks and poopy Hoboken streets
Snow brings dog poop land mines in Hoboken!
Bumping this thread from a while back – about the increasing number of dog droppings in Hoboken that aren’t picked up. Have you noticed it as well?
Hoboken411 reader GIRL – had this to say:
“The mounds of snow and the overall mess in town does NOT entitle dog owners/walkers to ignore the clean up! The pee is one thing (obviously visible in the piles of snow), but the blatant disregard to clean up the dog poop is getting ridiculous. Walk down ANY street you walk down you will find some! Unbelievable. It is unsanitary, and when snow melts the poop stays!!! UGH!”
See original update after the jump!
What happened to the dog poop fines?
One Hoboken411 reader is wondering what’s happening with the lazy dog owners that don’t pick up their dog’s fecal output!
“As a dog owner myself I am appalled by the laziness of Hoboken Dog owners. Ever walk on the Southside of 11th Street between Clinton and Willow? There must be 10 big piles of dog poop on the sidewalk and in the tree bases? Who is this lazy person? I also like the people who leave their poop in snow. Dude, when it melts the poop will still be there.”
Maybe it’s time to revive the Hoboken Poop Offender Zone?
Then recently, walking around during a night out with some Hoboken411 readers, one of them stopped and asked me to take a picture of this disgusting corner (8th and Grand). It had piles of bags with dog droppings in it.
She said “How come there are hardly any trash cans around town. There used to be one here. Now lazy dog owners just drop the bags in the spot where the can was! What’s up with that?”
Anyway, after snapping that photo, a group of fine Hoboken residents were walking past us – and they asked me “Are you Hoboken411?” I replied, “Why yes, yes I am – how’d you know?” They replied “Who else would be taking pictures like that at this hour?”
Nice meeting you again, guys!
