Remember Maxwell House?

8/31/2009:

Back then…

I stumbled across some photos in my archives that I haven’t seen in a while – of what the current Maxwell Place residential/retail neighborhood looked like just a few years ago.

Sure is nice to be able to use that prime waterfront space now, isn’t it?

Maxwell house, the only good thing is that it made a lot of good jobs that’s it. The smell,you mean the lingering odor that was everywhere.The smog it created covered everyones cars with a brown residue. Who knows what other crap came out of those stacks? How many people have lung damage because of what was put in the air? The only good thing was the sign.That plant would not be allowed to operate today with the current EPA stanards.I say good riddance.

Think – when one becomes a resident, one is a local. The term B&R and Yuppie should be forgotten to us. Let’s look for a brighter Hoboken and more open minds.

CPW…there are locals living in Maxwell Place…it is time to stop the them vs. us…..We have a new acting Mayor who is trying to unite all for a better Hoboken….we all share the burden of taxes and inept government leaders.

It was a joke. I’m the first one to want to see unification. However, after the amount of work it took to get people to get unified on a simple scum bag, I wouldn’t hold my breath. 99% of the people in our City are too fat and lazy to want to fix what is wrong.

Sorry — but that is a fact. Sheepeople and Hoboken go hand in hand. Sooner or later they will stop forgetting about the latest ass-pounding and act.

Or haven’t you noticed? Is anyone doing much about the sickening tax bills that we’re paying?

No. But we care about a friggin Coffee Plant. LOL.

As a Maxwell resident, not a yuppie, well into middle age, it’s nice to see more positive comments about Maxwell from area residents, including 411, who seemed to take pleasure in trashing it for years. We’re loving being Hoboken residents this past year!
