Hobokenites Without Power Losing Their Patience; Multiple Buildings Still Without Electricity
While the vast majority of Hoboken has been powered up again, roughly 40 buildings in town remain powerless and cold. Let us know if you're still without power.
For some people, it's getting to be too much.
Hoboken's three substations were fixed on Sunday night, which helped the majority of the town restore power.
If power is still out, the problem could be in the building itself or with the wires connecting the building to the substations.
PSE&G has shut off gas in multiple buildings before power can be restored as a safety measure. This means that many people are also without heat and the ability to cook.
At 450 Fifth St., resident Steve LaMarca, 24, has been without power since Sandy hit Hoboken.
He said he hasn't been able to reach the building's management company, Applied Housing, because all their phone lines are down.
After calling PSE&G, he was told to call Applied. Now, LaMarca said, he feels like he's being strung along."And now, people in the building are putting signs on doors saying 'two weeks,'" LaMarca said.
Downtown Italian deli Luca Brasi's remained without power on Thursday afternoon.
Residents at 100 and 102 Park Ave. were still without power, as well as 710 Jefferson St., 608 Madison St. as well as 525 and 527 Willow Ave.
The same is true for a few thousand other residents in town.
"We residents have contacted everyone on the planet," said one resident of 608 Madison St., one of the buildings which remained powerless.
In a tweet on Thursday, Anthony Casalena wrote, "my building at 710 Jefferson Street. Still without power! PSE&G was supposed to come yesterday but never showed."
