Reader Mail: Free parking for flats?
3:57pm Update: Here’s a letter from another 411 reader:
“Well that didn’t take long.
If the folks in City Hall can’t get onto Hoboken411 someone is certainly monitoring it.
By noon today a couple of guys were working on the caddy behind City Hall, couldn’t help but notice that they looked like city employees. Nice use of our tax dollars.”
Here, an anonymous reader wonders if it’s good to have City Hall / Parking Authority friends..
Love the site, keep up the wonderful work.
I’ve been noticing the same Caddy behind City Hall for the last two weeks in the same exact spot & thought it had gone on long enough that I should share with others the apparent lack of parking regulation enforcement. Seems the car owner has a nice flat rear tire & has been able to park the car on Bloomfield directly behind City Hall for the last two weeks. The owner must have some good friends @ HPU & City Hall since the car has gone without tickets, without a boot, & without being towed. How long to you think your own car would last in a Police Parking Zone?”
I wondered myself about this. It could very well be an unfortunate senior citizen with limited resources and means that the HPD is just offering a “courtesy” to. But at least have it moved someplace private so that spot can be used for an operational vehicle.
