My trip to Weehawken and Hoboken

Dear Editor:
My wife and I had a very nice time in Weehawken this past weekend and on our way out of town decided to shop (spent about $150) in Hoboken. All was good until we went to our car and found a parking ticket with the charge of “Street cleaning alternate parking” (a copy is attached). I’ve paid it, but I do so under protest. It’s my observation your police department, or ticket writers, have quite the scam. When we returned to our car and found the ticket I looked up and down the street and not a NJ car had a ticket on it…that leads me to believe that the philosophy is ticket the out of towners, they won’t come back…as I said, quite the scam.
Be assured that when we tell people to do some of the things we did this past weekend we will include “do not go to Hoboken.”
