a boat of a different name

For those of you spending your time speculating about HH instead of shutting down your computer and enjoying the holiday weekend with those you love, I will respond with the following:

The name of this blog comes from this story on, which I found while researching Hoboken before my partner and I made the decision to move here. The name is catchy, easy to remember, and pays homage to one of Hoboken's greats. A perfect storm if you will.

And as to my motivations for starting this blog in the first place - I thought it would be a great motivator for us to learn more about the city we were moving to. We wanted to engage and explore our new community, instead of just falling into the pattern of 'sleeping' in Hoboken, and 'living' in Manhattan, which so many people tend to do.

To date we've been living here over a year and do not regret our decision. In fact, I think we're happier than we've ever been.

Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend everyone!
