Obnoxious Hoboken Sign Hypocrite FAIL!
Zoning Officer to Antonucci: Enough!
Overzealous agents told to take down obnoxious signs…
Hoboken411’s report on Prudential Castle Point Realty agent Donna Antonucci’s ridiculous displays of excess signage is getting results!
It turns out Antonucci’s signs aren’t just annoying, they’re also illegal.
Hoboken Zoning Officer Ann Holtzman sent out a letter to all Real Estate agents and brokers reminding them of the rules for posting real estate signs – rules Antonucci has been the “poster child” for breaking.
- Only one sign per listing (Antonucci violation x 2)
- No advertising signs whatsoever (Antonucci violation: 100%)
- Signs must be removed once sold or rented (Antonucci violation x 1)

Sign hater Donna Antonucci embarrasses neighborhood
Some of you may remember the name Donna Antonucci.
For a brief while, she was a out-of-control political junkie. Hollering at city council meetings (and getting removed by police by order of ex-Council President Peter Cunningham), angrily tearing down election signs and meddling with other people’s business complaining of “sign pollution.” It was an embarrassing spectacle she made in public for sure.
Now, after being laid off from corporate America – she’s become a realtor in town. Which is all fine and dandy.
However, this sign-tearing political attack dog has set the world record for largest (and most obnoxious) display of real estate promotions on a building at 6th and Hudson. Granted, this is not public property – but it has to break some kind of “quality of life” ordinance in Hoboken.
Hoboken411 received many emails yesterday from area residents who were shocked at how terrible this made their neighborhood look.
“That blown up head shot of Donna is scary!” said one resident, while 411 reader Paul said “The sign must be at least six square feet. Does it have it’s own MLS listing?”
Lacey tied this to real estate marketing and said “The opposite of “old world charm,” and a “hidden treasure” I’d rather never discover!”
Finally, Scott commented about the photo, giving Ms. Antonucci some advice: “If you’re going to blow your photo up that big to be seen on Google Earth, you better hire a better graphic artist to air-brush out the crows feet!”
Imagine how ugly Hoboken would be if this array of signs was on every house?
