Newark Street in Hoboken was one of the few cobblestone roads left in Hoboken — this past week, however, Hudson County removed the cobblestones stretching from Hudson Street to Washington Street. In a statement to The Hoboken Girl, Marilyn Baer of the City of Hoboken shared: “The cobblestones on Newark Street are not historic and were installed in 2016 by the county but unfortunately, over time, they have proven difficult to maintain and created safety hazards. While [Hudson] County is removing the stones, they will be replacing them with an asphalt pattern that will mimic a cobble/ Belgian block appearance, but without the maintenance challenges that created the hazardous conditions present before the Belgian block was removed.” Marilyn also shared that “this project is separate from the Court Street project which is still in the public design phase.” Another representative from the City told HG that the County has full authority to do what it wants on county roads, but the City was aware and gave a courtesy okay.

We Joined Threads

In a somewhat cruel irony, Meta launched its new mobile app (and Twitter rival) Threads on July 6th. Though we were formally on break, we had to see what the text-based microblogging app was all about — and frankly, we’ve been having fun. Give us a follow us @thehobokengirl and our sister accounts @themontclairgirl, @theasburyparkgirl, and @thecatskillsgirl and prepare for the same Hoboken + Jersey City fun… with a tinge of chaos.
