Hoboken Congestion is Preventable

Crazy traffic snarls city streets in Hoboken

The photos in the gallery below were snapped around 6:45pm yesterday evening. For close to two hours, the city was at a virtual standstill due to the street closures in conjunction with the Party With Purpose 5k race last night.

This bit of evidence might support those who believe that 5k runs shouldn’t take place on weekdays at the height of rush hour. Hoboken Police had no other choice but to tell residents who wished to access their parking garages after work that “they’re out of luck.”

PS – if you have images collecting dust on your camera or hard drive – send them in for eventual inclusion on Hoboken411! Please state how you’d like to be credited in your email, and a description – if desired!!

What a hassle. Luckily I was warned about this and drove along the western side of town. This is the worst possible time to have this run, but they still do it year after year.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
