Sign of the Times: Hoboken Transformer Crashes & Burns

Last night, an uptown Hoboken transformer flamed out and came crashing to the ground on the south side of Hudson and 11th Street.

The transformer ebbed a red glow with smoke oozing out as PSE&G with Hoboken Police came on the scene within minutes of the crash.

In less than an hour, two PSE&G trucks were on the scene and elevated above the wires making repairs. Residents affected were mostly back up with power in under an hour.

The following morning another transformer blew uptown on upper Park Avenue.

It’s a sign of the times.
