Hoboken Week in Review – 10/14/2007

Welcome new registered readers this week!

Weather is finally seasonal, but that has no bearing on the heat wave approaching local Hoboken politics in the 4th Ward.

Besides the mudslinging in town, we have important meetings coming up, a first-class restaurant that opened, October baseball and the usual shenanigans taking place in the Mile Square.

Please feel free to send tips, rants, comments, drinks and suggestions to: Hoboken411@gmail.com.


What other items were covered in the past week? Here’s a sampling:

News, items of importance & “Hot Topics”:

  • No Spin Zone – 411 does work outside of this site. Haters try to spin it into something it’s not. Burn on them.
  • A long light – Like a Christmas tree without electricity, a much-needed traffic light sits dormant in town.
  • Local rag – The weekly fish wrap analysis.

Town Government:

  • Nearly Criminal – The things that take place in our City Council meetings can be astonishing.
  • Turtles – This 4th Ward race is more like seeing which coma patient can count 100 sheep first.
  • More Spin – Assumptions are made with absentee ballots in the aforementioned race. How does anyone know how anyone voted?
  • Holy _____ ! – Ongoing meetings and debate about a potential developer windfall at a defunct religious property.
  • We need more cowbell parks! – Progress on the SW6 proposal. Political posturing ensues.

Community Events & Local Sports:

  • Awww, how cute! – The annual kid/dog Halloween parade is at the end of October.
  • Flood-tastic – 4th Ward candidate Dawn Zimmer hosts a flood forum to discuss high-tech and less costly ways to alleviate flooding in Hoboken. No, tomatoes are NOT included.
  • Woof! I mean Bark! – Fun, large-scale dog event to be held in nearby Liberty State Park.
  • Take me out to the ball game of town – No local sports teams are in the hunt for the MLB World Series Championship.
  • More doggie stuff – The annual pet parade is coming soon. Should Oscar march? He needs a costume.

New, Updated or Coming Soon:

Leaving Town, screwed, or mucked up:

I’m not sure it is well read, but it is left on every doorstep in town, so it is well distributed. With papers you buy you can judge its success by its circulation, because people are willing to pay for a copy. With a free paper like this circulation means nothing.


I read the Hoboken Reporter and I think they do a fine job. And I think if the paper was not well read then advertisers wouldn’t pay to place their ads in there. They must be doing something right.
