Friday’s Fire Fundraiser, auction items and rent insurance

This Friday night Room 84 will be hosting a fundraiser for victims of the 300 Washington Street.  The Facebook page for the event shows hundreds plan on attending that evening and the Hoboken Rotary Club is accepting online donations.

With the size of the event growing, items for raffle or in a silent auction would be greatly appreciated such as theater, concert, sporting event tickets and gift baskets, etc.

If you are looking to help, please email or

Of the 17 fire victims displaced by the fire, 9 lost everything having no insurance.


Talking Ed Note: In the last few years, there have been several fires in Hoboken.  Each left people in unfortunate outcomes where they had no insurance.

An insurance policy in addition to fire may also cover robbery, weather and liability.

Typically a renter’s policy is anywhere from $200 – 300, less than a dollar a day, depending on the amount of coverage.  State Farm on lower Washington Street can provide you a quote for coverage right over the phone and have a policy made effective the same day.  Da Horsey has found their assistance professional and efficient.  To contact them:

Related: A reader notes the film “Delivered Vacant.” MSV attended a screening of the movie at Stevens in late 2009 where Nora Jacobson last visited Hoboken and discussed the making of the documentary.

No one was ever arrested for the murders
mostly of children and the FBI kept away by then Mayor Capiello.
