Hoboken Week in Review: 1/23/2011


The most noteworthy posts for the week ending Sunday, January 23, 2011:

Politics and City Happenings

  • MILLIONS!Not talking about the lottery jackpot – but rather the oodles of cash they say it’ll cost to fix the waterfront. Roads should be fixed before recreation. You taxes will never go down again!
  • Finger PointingHoboken Parking Utility botches a simple permit renewal. Maybe if they didn’t have a tiered pricing program to RIP RESIDENTS OFF – they could have avoided this embarrassing debacle.
  • Bus MiseryThe NJ Transit 126 Bus Line wouldn’t win any popularity contests in Hoboken.
  • Classless CouncilOh brother. It’s getting painful to watch Hoboken City Council meetings these days, because the Zimmer “minority” is highly bitter, angry and most obviously unprofessional in the way they conduct business. Such a shame.
  • Got Gas?Debate on whether having a massive (highly explosive) natural gas line close to Hoboken can be stopped.
  • White StuffHow’d you like our fresh coat of snow?

Crime and Incidents

  • Blotter UpdatesNo super-major incidents this week – but see all the other nonsense in the Hoboken Police Blotter category to peruse some of the noteworthy incidents in the Mile Square.
  • TWITTERMany local crimes and incidents are reported *as they happen* here on Hoboken411 – follow that Twitter link to be tuned in for all of them!
  • Live Action!Tune in to Hoboken411’s live police and fire action channel any time of the day to find out what those sirens are for! 99.9% of the time you’ll be let down – but that’s a good thing!

Business & Events

  • W-I-N Win! Win! Win!Pick the score of today’s Jets vs. Steelers game and eat for free at Wicked Wolf Tavern!
  • Wild Ripoff?The “all you can eat” program at a local sushi joint give you indigestion.
  • Cake Boss ParmigianaThe Cake Boss family is opening an Italian Restaurant. Wanna bet they only have Carlo’s Bakery desserts?

Other Hoboken Updates

  • Hired yet?Jobless Josh back with another update about unemployed life in Hoboken.
  • Pet Haters!Many residents think apartments in Hoboken have silly pet policies. What’s the big deal?

Inspirational Quote of the Week:

The way people in democracies think of the government as something different from themselves is a real handicap. And, of course, sometimes the government confirms their opinion.”

– Lewis Mumford
