Hoboken Week in Review: 10/2/2011
Weekly Recap for Hoboken, NJ – October 2nd, 2011
2,000 Day Anniversary for Hoboken411!
Today marks the 2,000 Day Anniversary since Hoboken411.com was “officially” launched back in 2006.
Things have certainly come and gone around Hoboken – but 411 somehow keeps getting stronger every month! The same may not be true for me physically, however (Any tips on motivating yourself to get to the gym?)
I still can’t believe that I’ve managed this site for so long while maintaining sanity. 2,880,000 minutes! (or 48,000 consecutive episodes of “60 Minutes.”)
Anyway – onwards to the next 2,000 days!
Enjoy the day!
A selection of noteworthy posts for the week ending Sunday, October 2, 2011:
