One of Hoboken’s bigger retailers Barnes & Noble says bye-bye to the Mile Square!
The new Governor of NJ is being told HUMC hospital will be shutting down in a few months – HUMC officials say otherwise in last week’s meeting. Many residents feel the “suits” running the show are lying through their teeth! I guess time will tell…

The Hoboken skyline icon – “Big John” gets taken down to make way for a waterfront path.
The closing of Barnes & Noble spawned a great story about days past in Hoboken…
Many signs point downward for the state of the U.S. Economy. Hot air? or a good time to prepare to leave the country?
Seems like no one good wants the job of Hoboken Superintendent of Schools. Would you want to be part of this circus? I didn’t think so.
Chatter gets stirred up again about bringing a full-fledged casino to the Meadowlands. “Hit me?” or “Fold?”
