Blame it on the solar-powered trash cans, but Hoboken has been named #2 on Livability.com’s 2014 list of “Best Cities for Liberals.”
Citing the city’s young demographic, progressive views on gay marriage and Mayor Dawn Zimmer‘s rather public disagreements with the Chris Christie administration, Hoboken comes in right behind Berkeley… yes, BERKELEY… as an idyllic left-wing bastion.
So unless you’re one of the 293 fans of the Hoboken Republicans facebook page (in a city of 50,000), get out and enjoy the sterling liberal utopia that is Hoboken. Of course you can only park if you drive a Prius, so stay in the bike lanes or stick your thumb out for the Neal Cassady-styled Hoboken HOP bus system.
“Hey man, is that Freedom Rock playing at the new Maxwell’s???”
“WELL TURN IT UP, MAN!!!”
