Hobokenpix: Playing in garbage?
Children still playing in garbage in Hoboken
Over eight years ago, we noticed the ridiculous sign near the uptown strip mall that said “No dog poop! Children play here.” Yes, kids are still playing in garbage in Hoboken!
Never gets old!
Here’s our original story from 2009:
Hoboken Photo of the Day – 4/21/2009
[Continuing the ORIGINAL Hoboken411 “Photo of the Day” series…]
Don’t get me wrong – I dig the new Uptown Commerce Center (or Peachtree, or whatever the “name of the week” is) and hope it fills up with fun businesses very soon. However, owner Mike Gorman is experiencing a bit of a problem up there. The small foliage area on the north side of the property – is being used and abused by inconsiderate dog owners. So he installed various courtesy signs around the property to remind folks to pick up after their animals.
But this sign installed on a trash bin just made me laugh. “Children Play Here.”
Not sure about you, but I cannot recall asking my mom “Can I go out and play by the garbage and parking lot curb? Pretty please?” ever in my life.
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.
