Hoboken Week in Review: 2/6/2011
The most noteworthy posts for the week ending Sunday, February 6, 2011:
Politics and City Happenings
- Census! – Hoboken’s population grew an amazing 30% in the past 10 years. All construction should stop until infrastructure problems are fixed!
- Pay to Play – Another marathon City Council meeting – with debates on towing, campaign financing, and more.
- Strollers! – One Hoboken411 reader was glad the snowy winter has kept sidewalk and coffee shop stroller blockage to a minimum.
- Icy! – Last week’s winter storm spared us the snow – but Hoboken became quite an ice rink.
- Removal – Snow cleanup continued in Hoboken – but not without all-day inconveniences.
- Buried – Many parking meters were practically inaccessible – however, the HPU still issued summonses.
- Corner Ticket – A rare site: A Hertz on Demand Connect Corner Car with a ticket. Someone must have not received the memo.
- Snow Mines – The issue re-surfaces every winter – piles of dog droppings ruining our gorgeous winter landscape.
Crime and Incidents
- CRASH! – The big news of the week was the bad car accident over the bridge on Willow Ave. Scary scene indeed!
- Blotter Updates – See the Hoboken Police Blotter category to peruse some of the noteworthy incidents in the Mile Square.
Business & Events
- CHICKEN! – Love fried Chicken? Rejoice as Chicken Galore is coming back to the Mile Square.
- Perfecto! – The new “Big Red” marinara sauce from Hoboken Farms will change your perception about canned sauces for good. Restoring faith in the good name of Hoboken!
- Rubee West – Popular Washington Street ladies clothing store Rubee’s Closet moves west.
- Sandwich love – The Taco Truck makes an impressive sandwich worth adding to your rotation.
- Sandwich Meh – Re.Juice.a.Nation, however, has mediocre sandwiches. Stick to juices (and salads – which readers rave about).

Other Hoboken Updates
- Win BIG! – Support a great school – and have a chance to win mad cash in the 2011 Stevens Cooperative 50/50 Raffle.
- No Home – A chat with two well-known homeless men over at Church Square Park.
