Hoboken pub crawl
The St. Patrick's Day parade canceled because of unruly (and that's putting it nicely) behavior last year, a pub crawl instead this year.
Numerous arrests, again. Cops had a no tolerance policy toward public drinking, urination, etc. The fine: $2,000.
I came across one young lady, crying and abandoned by her friends. No money. No cellphone. No ID.
I let her use my phone to call for help - but who abandons one's friend like that? And leaves her with no means to even call or take a train back home?
Another couple literally walked into a wrought iron fence. I was on the phone when it happened with a friend who asked me if they were alright. I answered, "if they're not, they don't know it!"
