Hoboken's Baby Parade - the Yuppies Have Gone Too Far.
Have you seen anything more ridiculous? This is a signature yearly event in Hoboken. The Baby Parade on May 20th. Why do New Yorkers across the river laugh at us? Gone are the artists, the grit and the diversity of Hoboken replaced by boxy condos that all look the same, overpriced strollers, chain stores, real estate agencies, banks, nail shops and cell phone stores. Hey wait a minute, doesn't that sound just like Manhattan??
I think there are a whole lot of people with a whole lot of time on their hands.
