gave proof thro' the night,
that our flag was still there.
No matter where we fall on Hoboken's political landscape, all gather under the same glittering night sky once a year to celebrate our American heritage. Lining the Hoboken waterfront, we forget our petty (and not-so-petty) grievances, losing ourselves to the canopy of color and sound, united as Americans.
Then we wake up the next day. BAM! POW! SLAP!
But last night was a nice pause to reflect on other things, surrounded by family, friends, neighbors- a night to share with those near and dear to us.
GA heard of one gathering of special friends last night:
Took a walk uptown around 8 oclock .... Saw (Mike)Holmes duck into a doorway. Took a look in and saw Michele (Russo) and Matt (Calicchio). Others there but couldnt see. In a small street level office space on corner of 12 and Maxwell Place. Franz (Paetzhold) lives in that building. Weird.The windows on Maxwell Place and along 12th st have the blinds drawn. The door was on the 12th street side. Looked like a door to the garage or something. Didn't look like a business....all the windows are covered in blinds and the door on the side street (12th) looked like a service door. Barely noticeable. I would have never noticed if I hadn't spotted Holmsie.
Have they relocated the Russo club?
Sweet! A perfect location for viewing the spectacular Macy's display.
GA heard this 'conference' space belongs to the building and is attached to the garage behind it. It can be reserved/rented by tenants- or perhaps a realtor; 2 12th Street is an Applied building.
In fact, GA heard this space is routinely shown to prospective tenants by realtors as one of the building amenities.
Interesting. Is the Dark Side using this obscure 2nd Ward hideaway for more than just parties?
I wonder how much it is to rent? And who paid?
Hey people, it's July 5th!
